olivernz: Persevere! These things are not easy and there is no way to really make it in any way more comfortable. One of the upsides is that you actually learn a LOT when confronted with these issues.
Oh, I forgot to post since I didn't think there was much interest in this thread, but I got it to work and have started to set up VPN clients. In order to get an internet connection, I had to point my WAN to igb1.10 and not igb1. I managed this by setting up VLAN 10 on the "DOS-like" interface before connecting to the Web based GUI. This created a igb.10. I then made my WAN connect to igb1.10 instead of igb1. I do not know if this is the right way, but I have an internet connection through the router. Comments will be appreciated as others might benefit from this.
The guys at NordVPN are super helpful and has provided me with a guide (in development) to assist with setting up multiple VPNs. I will sort this out tonight. More importantly for me is my next aim after setting up multiple VPNs, which is to channel the correct traffic through them. Example, if there is a device that is connecting to Netflix, I want the router to recognize it and send the traffic through to the US VPN client. Similarly if the same device connects to now.dstv.com (streaming service in South Africa which is geo-restricted), I want the router to recognize it and send the traffic through to the ZA VPN client. So if anyone know how to do this, please help me.
I saw 4 URLs for Netflix and will create an alias for them later. But where do I find these URLs for other sites? In particular for now.dstv.com ?
I've now added a 24 port fully managed switch to my mix which has a 550 page manual. So yeah, it will take me weeks to get it sorted. But in the end I will have a safer environment for my kids and have learnt a HEAP! ...by the way, still being challenged by my MikroTik router too. Just so much stuff to configure.
Wow ... good luck with that!!! I still have to set up my Vodafone Huawei HG659 to be an access point only for my wireless connections. Not sure how that is going to be done yet - as you can recall, I am a noob with this stuff.
