I'm currently with Sky and about to move ISP very soon for a variety of reasons. I've purchased a VPN which I'm delighted with, Sky routers are pretty much locked down, and I cant configure it for my VPN.
Does any one know of an ISP who's router can be configured for a VPN? I don't want to buy a VPN router just to plug into my existing router.
Zero - to run a VPN you have to have ports externally facing, which is in itself a security risk. ISPs would need to constantly ensure the firmware was updated with bug-fixes and security updates to ensure security, which is a headache. Instead ISPs allow you to manually open ports yourself, which is your choice and your security risk, you can install a VPN of your choice and place it in the DMZ / port forward, but ultimately the security risk is your VPN software not something ISP provided. Likewise if you get your own router, that's your job to keep updated and managed. I generally advise against using a VPN hosted on a router, as it usually ends up full of security holes and updates to the router firmware are behind the VPN providers security patches / updates.
