    Can I - and if so use a VPN connection with my MN 500?

  2. I do. So yes, it's possible. You need to make sure simply that you've
    opened the right port mapping for the VPN protocol you've chosen (PPTP,
    L2TP), and pointed it towards the VPN host. Oh, and of course, the VPN host
    must have a fixed address, not simply a DHCP assigned one, unless you've got
    a hankering to mess with triggering.

    What is the appropriate port to open on the Router for
    IPSEC? For PPTP?

    For PPTP use port 1723 and GRE protocol 47
    For L2TP Ports 1701 and Port 500
    By the way, I have not been succesful in getting VPN with
    IPSEC to work on a MN-500. MN500 does not appear to
    process IPSEC properly. Any idea how to open ports on an
    MN-500. I.e to enable Port forwarding.I am pretty sure
    that all I need to do is enable port 500 forwarded to the
    local PC. I browsed the docs last evening, and keeping in
    mind that I have been working on Networking equipment for
    10 years, I could find nothing clear in the documentation.
    VPN to a Microsoft RAS server works ok. But when I tried
    to connect using a Sonicwall client , similar to the Cisco
    clients, no go. These clients require IPSEC pass through.
    At the risk of enraging the Microsoft BroadBand community,
    I found that the Linksys BEFSW11 Ver 2 works like a charm.
