    VPN Filtering

    Hey folks,

    I'm hoping someone out there may know this one as searching around has lead nowhere so far.

    I want a home router which will behave as normal home router (n internal ethernet ports and one external ISP ethernet port).

    All standard so far...

    What I would like this router to do is join a VPN.

    I have moved from the UK to Australia and would like to maintain some UK in country services.

    The VPN would be to a UK site.

    What I want the router to do is route all traffic to my ISP normally unless it is a UK destination. In that case I want the traffic to route to the VPN.

    In the Cisco world this would be possible with Access Control Lists, but I am hoping to avoid the cost/bulk/noise of an enterprise Cicso router.

    Does anybody know of a smaller, cheaper home option?

    Your closest option I would say is to run a RRAS service. Running a tower and install RRAS and use software based VPN services.

    If you're running DDWRT or OpenWRT on your home router, you should be able to add routes to the VPN tunnel for specific networks.
