setting up VPN on airport extreme base station and airport express

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Does anyone here know if first off it is possible to set up my airport extreme base station to do vpn? The reason I ask is because I want to protect any of my info for my home office. My current set up is:

1) Airport Extreme set up to ISP and also to a gig switch.

2) gig switch to all computers that are not wirelsss "macs and pc's"

3) Airport express to extend the range of the base station.

4) 2 wireless clients and 2 printers that connect to the wireless network with wep 128 enable. Also the SSID is hidden.

Please reference anywhere that will explain how to set up my current network to encorparate VPN.

The AirPort allows VPN pass-through...i.e. you can VPN from home into a business network. If you want to be able to VPN INTO your home network from outside, you need some sort of VPN router. The AirPort does not support this.
