VPN for Unifi

So I have Fios at home and I have to use their router because my tv is through them as well but I am starting to run some Unifi equipment such as a Nano HD, which should be in next week, and a US 8 60w. I want to setup a VPN and wasn't sure that a USG would be the most cost effective equipment, unless I can somehow use it to also work as the router and NOT lose the Fios TV.

 

Ideally id like to run the USG instead of the Fios g1100 and keep the TV part working properly. Any suggestions? Recommendations? Thanks in advanced!

Re: VPN for Unifi

Are you trying to VPN in or out?

 

I am using a USG and have enabled VPN for inbound traffic so that I can get to my home network while on the road. It works great. Only problem I ever encountered was in China where they block the VPN ports.

If the TV part is on a different VLAN, then you can keep it outside of the firewall. Your firewall would only cover Internet.
