I have a windows desktop, an ipad, a linux laptop, and two raspberry pi's, how do I set up a VPN to accomodate the lot. My router is a TP Link AC 1750 ADSL2 modem router. Regards

I don't think you need a VPN - Virtual Private Network - these are usually used for connecting to work computers from home for home working.

I think you just need to set up your network to be able to share files, is this right? If so I will post more info tomorrow, just about to go out to work now.

What version of Windows are you running and which Linux distro are you using?

Hi thanks for your reply, I do need a VPN as I run 2 raspberry Pi's running Kodi not so much for the others, although my Laptop runs Linux mint with cinnamon 18.1. Desktop runs Win 7, ipad ios

Thanks but it's quite complicated.
