    Default Landlord's WIFI to my new network

    So. Yeah. In two weeks I'm renting an apartment closer to work, and the landlord will provide wifi access through their account.

    Except I'm that guy.

    I want my Untangle ad blocker and the ability to tunnel VPN to my house, which is 1500 miles away, and get my files off my NFS share, which is behind my Untangle firewall at home.

    If you were me, but smarter, how would you do this?

    The parts I don't already know are:
    1. How to use Untangle to go from wifi to a new wifi-wired network. Unless there really is a wired connection from the landlord, which I doubt.
    2. How to set up the durable tunnel from an Untangle at the remote point to the Untangle at 'home'. I bet there's a readme, just point me and don't yell please.

    V14 which will be released soon (beta available on the forums) will allow the Wifi interface, if your Untangle box has one, to connect to a WiFi network as a WAN.

    Yeah v14 should work for you to get online.

    You can use openvpn/tunnel vpn to connect to home in either full-tunnel or split tunnel fashion.

    Landlord probably has a basic router setup, where you won't be able to do any meaningful port forward rules for inbound traffic. And you'll be doing double NAT, so look for gaming consoles to hate you.

    But anything else should work just fine.

    It will probably still have the default password.
