I have a need to install one of our Polycom IP500 handsets in an external member of staff’s house. I have Bria working on iPhones that link back to the system via the OpenVPN app and the same working on desktops but this installation needs to be a physical handset.
I’m not opening any dedicated ports or changing anything in the firewall so VPN is the only way to get in to the system.
I thought I could buy a little box that could sit between the users home router and the Polycom. The box does the handshaking for VPN and the Polycom plugs direct into it, none the wiser as to where it is in the world.
I’ve been searching and searching and can’t find anything that seems suitable for OpenVPN. Everything seems to be pointing towards having some sort of dedicated machine at the users end which is a no-go in this situation.
I’m now a bit stuck on what to do, can anyone recommend anything?
