Static IP "Middleman" server!!

Post by johnmickenzy » Sat Feb 02, 2019 3:50 pm

Myself and a few other remote staff are having to get an ip whitelisted by our IT dept. every time we move locations (coffee shops, etc.) so we can connect to our openvpn server in the office. This is getting frustrating.



Is there a configuration we can setup on Linode or DigitalOcean with a cheap box that has a static IP and we connect to that server which maintains a constant openvpn connection to our office?



I'm a mobile dev engineer so I'm capable - just not up to date with networking and this type of setup solutions.



Thanks!

Yes .. and for a small but fair fee, I could set it up for you: tincanteksup <at> gmail

Note: This action could be perceived by your employer as a security breach and lead to severe reaction...
