I recently bought a Linksys E3000 802.11n router and loaded dd-wrt on
it. Prior to that, I was trying to setup an IPSec server on my SSH VM
that I use to tunnel my VNC connections through. I was not successful
in setting up IPSec. But dd-wrt comes with a built-in PPTP server. I
switch that on and now I can VPN to my home connection on my iPhone
and iPad. It was extremely simple.
