HamWAN remote

FSG has been promoting HamWAN and it’s use for connecting parts of Tampa bay over our amateur microwave frequencies. In keeping with this, there’s been a need to connect mutiple remote sites, where there is internet, but outside the coverage area of HamWAN wireless. The soultion to this is a VPN and we’ve come up with a “turnkey” soultion supporting the following:

  • Cheap (100-200 of equipment)
  • IPv4 and IPv6 routed subnet
  • Transparent routing over the underlay network (people shouldn’t be able to tell it’s a VPN)
  • Traverse NAT, even NAT 4444
  • Mutiple switch ports with Power Over Ethernet (PoE) as an option
  • Integrate to the existing HamWAN network, and optionally provide redundancy to wireless
  • Scale to gig+ speed
  • Allow others who have their own IP space to announce it via HamWAN Tampa
