I have an Edgerouter-X on the way, although I still only have a vague idea of what I'm going to do with it. The basic thought is, keep using my TP-Link Archer D9 DSL modem/router for internet access, but use the Edgerouter for its more robust and configurable firewall (the TP-Link doesn't even have a setup tab for the firewall - not even an enable/disable).I'm running OpenVPN on an Edgerouter-X, which is accessible from pc, Android & iOS. It uses the freely available OpenVPN client from Android Play and Apple Store.
The BI box has a WiFi radio as well as an Ethernet NIC. Right now, I have the camera network on the Ethernet NIC, and connection to the outside world comes in on WiFi, as set up by the BI network wizard using uPNP to set up the TP-Link.
From my reading of this thread and the wiki, I'm guessing this es no bueno long term.
So I figure, put the BI server and camera net behind the Edgerouter, and perhaps hook up a WiFi access point to it and keep the BI WiFi separate from the hardwire NIC.
Is this similar to what you have, catcamstar? Internet modem > Edgerouter > BI system?
Edit: My God, I'm fretting over VPN setup on NYE
