I just setup a Dustyfoot system (http://www.dustyfoot.com). The process was painless thanks to the great documentation and personal support I recieved from Scott. Notes below:
* Step number 50 has a typo in the third sentance. The last word should be bit not but.
* The peanuts in the shipping box made quite a mess when I was unpacking. Scott was good enough to provide me with bags to put the peanuts in (so I could recycle), but it was still quite a chore. Perhaps a better idea would have been to put the peanuts in the bags to start. Sprinkle a few around to fill the cracks, but fill the bulk of the space with *bagged* peanuts.
* Setting up VPN over the connection was easy. I'm on a dynamic IP with the Cisco client 4.0.3D with UDP and IPSec. I've read alot on the other message boards about problems, but I didn't have any trouble. My bet is that those people were having NAT trouble with an IPSec incompatible router. I don't have a router in between my PC and the "modem".
Glad you got your VPN working! Thanks for the proofreading.
I have abandoned the packing peanuts and am now packing the systems differently. I found some smaller shipping boxes and am using some of the orginal cardboard to go inside the main box. End results is no more peanuts and smaller overall shipping size.
I too experienced quality support with setting up my Dustyfoot system. Scott aslo provided the help I needed when I encountered problems at a subsequent location.
