I haven't been able to find the info I am looking for so I figured I'd give it a shot here.

1. Is there a builtin IPSec server included with DD-WRT?
2. Can the unit be used as an end-point for a site-to-site IPSec VPN (without installing extra software)?
3. I read about getting OpenVPN running on the device and was curious if there is a guide/walkthrough on how to do this? or at the very least some more information about it?

Thanks for any help you can provide

1. I don't think so, just PPTP.

2. I don't think so either, because there is no IPSec server included. I actually use ClarkConnect to do this (it's a computer-based routing distro, similiar to m0n0wall or smoothwall, if you're familiar with those.

3. A great place to start would actually be the old forum, although this may be exactly what you need.

Hope this helps!

Thanks for the answers, and that article is exactly what I'm looking for.

by chance is there any IPSec server software out there that works with DD-WRT?

Thanks much!

FreeS/Wan or openswan would probably be the best candidate for an IPSec VPN Server if it can be cross compiled and integrated into DD-WRT- I think it would be neat to be able to have site-to-site VPN abilities on a WRT54G.
