Maybe that explains why Linksys issued "Version Five" of their router,
with only half the RAM and EEPROM, and a proprietary "operating system."
But I digress.
I'm more interested in what one can do with OpenWRT or another
Linux-embed OS for router boxes, that one cannot do with the
factory-default OS. I've heard that one can establish VPN's with a
minimum of fuss. True? And if so, how?
