If I set up an XP-based VPN server using the following instructions (I think this is a fairly standard method):
Will I be able to connect to the server from my Mac laptop (OSX 10.6) from a remote network and use the VPN tunnel to browse the web securely?
I would use this method to connect to the VPN from my Mac:
I would use the DynDNS support on my router to avoid problems with my dynamic IP address at home.
The reason I ask (and don't just try), is that I will first have to pick up an old windows laptop to act as the server. That's a good few hours drive away, so I don't want to do it only to find out it won't work. Most of the articles about this topic focus on connecting from a remote machine to access files on your home network etc. I don't care about that - just want to tunnel web traffic.
My motivation is that I want to be able to use the wireless network at my university without crazy restrictions on the sites im visiting. I know VPN connections are allowed because I connect to my office VPN from university all the time.
Thanks in advance.
