I am a network idiot - I can't even get my lappy and my desktop to Homegroup through my router ... and now I want a VPN!
I am working out of town a lot, and I would like access to files that are on my desktop from my hotel room. I don't want my whole life on Dropbox. Theoretically, this what a VPN is for, right?
I did not see a Tutorial on the topic and I've searched a few old threads. I perused the native windows VPN setup deal, but like most M$ documentation it is either worthless or impenetrable. Thinking maybe there is a better way by now, I'm am querying the collective sage of the forum.
It needs to be simple, moderately secure (there is no keeping the NSA out, but hotel networks are public these days), and as close to free as possible.
