So I've got an ssh tunnel to remotely access my alarm. I'm not there for another week or two, so can't move my vpn there.

I can VPN to my main network. Is there a way I could then set up a route that goes through an shh tunnel to the other property to access the alarm?

I mean if I have to I can team viewer to the house with the alarm and then access the alarm from there.

But the VPN > ssh tunnel > alarm idea intrugued.

I have access to a Linux ( where the vpn is loaded) or windows. And where the alarm us I have windiws, or a raspberry Pi if I have to.

If the alarm is just HTTP then you could look into a reverse proxy on a pi at the location, with SSL certs for authentication. Friend has that (but on an old PC) because they had no end of problems with places blocking VPN, whereas https to their server works fine on all the networks they have used.

Some apache voodoo makes it then proxy out over http to the internal appliances web interfaces.

Actually stupidly I was just complicating things......there's a DD-WRT machine with the alarm as well as a PI...I just turned on the pptp vpn for the short time we're not there.  All sorted.

If I really could be bothered I'd put an ipsec vpn on the PI....but I have one of those on my linux machine that will transfer when we move.
