    Household VPN with Linksys Router?

    I have to connect to work to get my email via a VPN connection. I am using the built in PPTP in OS X from my home-based iMac most of the time.

    However, every once in a while I will come home with my MBP, and if my iMac is connected, I cannot connect my MBP to the VPN at the same time (works fine if I stop the connection on the iMac).

    I am running behind a Linksys router running an older version of the Sveasoft firmware.

    Anyone know of a way to get the router to be the VPN client, and then set up specific routes from the NAT'd clients to route over that connection.

    I do the same thing on my local machines (route only certain IP's over the ppp0 interface), and am hoping I can get the router to do that work as well (and thus allow multiple computers in my house access to the work network).

    Any thoughts?

    Depending on the model, older and more basic routers may only allow 1x VPN connection at a time to pass through them.

    What model do you have?

    WRT54GS running Sveasoft Talisman/Basic 1.0.5.


    I can upgrade to any of the Sveasoft versions if necessary.
