I have no experience with VPN's , but was curious if one could be setup between two households that are not on the same domain? What is necessary to setup something like that?

If you want something "permanent" that's truely a VPN (i.e. just like a corporate WAN) purchase a couple of firewalls that do point-to-point (a.k.a LAN-to-LAN) VPN.

Since you're in Louisville, are you using Bellsouth/SBC or otherwise? If it's BS, I'd suggest you try and get a static IP on one end, it's fairly cheap.

Once that's done, you install hardware, essentially point the gear at each other's IP's, tell them what networks you want to encrypt and allow access between (they can't overlap. i.e. if your network is 192.168.1.x, the other household can't be the same. Do 192.168.2.x....)

Make sense?

They have to support the point to point VPN. Most say it right on the packaging if they do support it.

I remember there being a router that said VPN when I bought mine, but at the time I didn't have plans to do that. Is there any way to do it if it is not VPN enabled?
