Joining two networks with a VPN

Question

Slugsie    1,233

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

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/.

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.

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/.
