    i have a DDWRT router at my dad's office and at home. looking to establish a vpn to allow for more secure RDP and file transfer

    i guess i could setup openvpn, but its kind of confusing and has the potential of bricking my router

    can i install hamachi without worrying about people getting into the vpn?

    i guess i could just use RDP and install HFS with decent passwords

    hmm...did not know this. i guess you learn something new every day

    i guess i could setup RDP, use a strong password. then i could turn on HFS server and download his backups etc
    HFS doesn't seem to have encryption, but i can restrict to certain ip addresses and set strong passwords
