HOW TO SETUP A VPN NETWORK WITHOUT ANY PC AS A VPN SERVER BUT THROUGH A VPN ROUTER

RE: VPN ROUTER WITH BUILT IN SERVER

Welcome to Tek-Tips.

First off, let me say that typing everything in CAPS is the equivalent of shouting and makes your posts very hard to read.

Second, are you asking a question or are you making a statement?

If you are asking a question, please provide additional detail so that we can best help you.  What model router, what platform, how many clients, etc.

HI,

i am new in VPN and i have the following question:
is it possible to have a vpn router that will provide virtual IPs to the connected clients that can be either PC or other devices?
I need to know that because i want to connect an IP camera directly to the router, and its software runs on a local network only or a VPN network. PLease, have a look in example 2 in attached file. thank you for any reply

RE: VPN ROUTER WITH BUILT IN SERVER

Ok, I think I understand what you are asking.  

Yes, you can set up a router - router VPN, as well as have a router act as a VPN and have software clients on remote PCs access it.  Similarly, you can have a software based VPN, such as OpenVPN, on your camera server which will work with pretty much any router, as long as you forward the port.  I would recommend looking at the Cisco routers if you plan on having a lot of traffic.  For a smaller application, Netgear makes some VPN routers too.  In essence, you would have a small lan for the cameras and camera server and then when someone connects to the VPN, they would have access to the cameras.  

In your diagrams, you show the cameras, the server, and clients all having a 192.168.2.x address.  I assume this is through the VPN.  One other option, depending on your architecture would be to put the cameras and camera server in a VLAN and then set up an access control list (ACL) of who is allowed to access it.  In the previous place I worked, this is how they set up the security cameras.
