Setting up a VPN using my home router to access my home network at work
Hello. I'm having trouble setting up a VPN in Windows 10 that allows me to access my home network at work or elsewhere. I'm mainly trying to accomplish this so that I can connect to my xbox one via the windows 10 streaming outside of my home which I have read is possible and supposedly easy.
I know how to get to the VPN setup screen in windows 10, but I don't know what to enter for the server name or address. Is it an IP address for my router? Do I have to do some port-forwarding? It doesn't seem like my uverse router (The nvg589) has built-in VPN settings, but I'm hoping there is a workaround so I can still set one up (maybe IP passthrough?)
Any instruction or help on how to get this VPN up and running would be great. I'm new to networking and VPN creation, so I could really use detailed info. Thank you.
