Now, I use a router-to-router VPN to connect small field offices to the
corporate office. I've been contemplating how to telnet into those
routers (or otherwise connect to that network) from home, but have a
dynamic IP on the home router. Can anyone suggest a secure way to let
DHCP-assigned locations into a firewalled network?
