Joining two networks with a VPN


Question

Slugsie

I'd like to set up a VPN so that my daughter can access my NAS from her home (also handy so I can access it whilst out and about), but I've no idea how to go about doing this,

 

My home router is a BT Home Hub 5, which has no VPN capability built in. But I can obviously open up ports on it as required.

My NAS is an EonNas Pro 810.

All PCs (mine and daughters) are Windows 10.

I have a spare Raspberry Pi B doing nothing, so that could be setup as a dedicated device if needs be.

 

So can anyone help, or point me to an easy to follow guide?

 

TIA

Look at Unifi equipment, lots of info on youtube on how to setup 2 locations via vpn.

Unless I'm missing something that involves buying expensive equipment. I should've mentioned that any solution needs to be as inexpensive as possible.

This seems like a decent guide for setting up a Rasberry Pi as a VPN server although I have no idea if it works with your Rasberry Pi B: https://pimylifeup.com/raspberry-pi-vpn-server/.

Looks like a good solution, but they recommend a Pi 2 or 3. I'll read up on it and decide on a Pi upgrade.

If your ISP uses a dynamic IP you might also want to setup dynamic DNS for easier connection. I've used No-IP for this for many years: https://www.noip.com/.

      Mozilla VPN launches on Android and Windows, available in six markets
      by Abhay Venkatesh



      Mozilla debuted its Firefox Private Network (FPN) extension back in September 2019, which was later released as a separate service in beta form for Android and Windows called Firefox Private Network VPN. The company began charging for the extension in June, and also announced that the tool would soon exit beta and will launch as Mozilla VPN.

      That happens today, as Mozilla VPN is now available for the Windows and Android platforms at $4.99 per month (spotted first by Venturebeat). The Mac and Linux versions of the VPN are slated to be made available soon, while the iOS version is still in beta. At launch, the service will be available on the said platforms in six markets – U.S., U.K., Canada, New Zealand, Singapore, and Malaysia. The beta versions were available only to customers in the U.S., so it is interesting to see the firm expand the availability of the service to more markets at launch.

      The company has always touted its offerings’ focus on privacy. It claims that the VPN does not log any network activity and only collects the “most minimal data required to keep the VPN healthy and operational”. It also boasts of WireGuard’s “lightweight code” that enables easier audit by security analysts, in comparison to other competitors.

      With surging VPN usage during the times of the pandemic, Mozilla’s service along with its promise to protect the privacy of users will go a long way in ensuring better adoption. It will be interesting to see how the company expands its offering and when the iOS version of the service hits general availability.
