How To: Getting VPN to work through NAT firewalls

With the rising popularity of telecommuting and the increasing need to protect their electronic assets, companies large and small have been turning to Virtual Private Networking (VPN). The good news is that many savvy IT departments realize that many of their telecommuting employees share their broadband connections with consumer-grade routers.

Linksys BEFVP41 EtherFast Cable/DSL VPN Router

Although this kind of product has been around for awhile, they've tended to be pretty expensive ($500 and up) and out of the range of most folks (unless their company was footing the bill!). So how can a company come along and do the same thing for under $150? Well, that's what I wondered, too, so I took a pair of Linksys BEFVP41's into the lab and had at 'em. You can see how they did in the resulting review.
