VPN through NAT (limited UI on router)?

VPN through NAT (limited UI on router)?

VPN through NAT (limited UI on router)?

  This is just a question really. My friend has a problem whereby they are being assigned a single static IP address for their connection.
The router they have seems to be NAT only (can't find an off switch...). He is interested in setting up a VPN.

The router itself doesn't seem to have an IP forwarding function on it. What we thought we'd do however, is match his internal subnet with his externally imposed static IP, cross our fingers and pray that the router would realise this and forward on anyway...

we've never had much luck in praying though.

Have a look at the router it's a Zyxel 791R Prestige (G.SHDSL).

If anyone can figure this one out, hats off to you!
