Use a VPN Tunnel on a Windows Computer
After you set up the router to use VPN and install the OpenVPN application on your computer, you can open a VPN
tunnel from your computer to your router over the Internet.
For the VPN tunnel to work, the local LAN IP address of the remote router must use a different LAN IP scheme from
that of the local LAN where your VPN client computer is connected. If both networks use the same LAN IP scheme,
when the VPN tunnel is established, you cannot access your home router or your home network with the OpenVPN
software.
