How to use l3 Communications with your Android phone, tablet, or laptop to remotely connect to your home network
Hacker News article If you’re a network administrator, you might find it useful to make your home router look like your corporate network.
In this article, I’ll explain how you can configure your home and corporate network in the same way.
You can connect your home or corporate network to your local network in a few steps, using l3 and the OpenVPN VPN client.
I’ll cover all of these steps in a video tutorial, but if you don’t have a video player or you want to get started quickly, check out this article to learn how to install and configure OpenVPN on your Android smartphone, tablet or laptop.
L3 Communications This method uses a simple, free VPN client to connect to a home network.
To configure l3, you’ll need to download the l3 client and install it on your computer.
This method works best with a network that has at least two network interfaces (if your home has two network ports, your device will work with two devices on the same network).
OpenVPN Client If you don�t have a VPN client installed, this method is more difficult.
To install the Open VPN client on your smartphone, you can use this guide to install it.
It�s also recommended that you install the l4 version of the OpenSSL cryptographic library, since it�s more secure. Once you�ve downloaded the lnx package, double-click it to launch the installation.
You’ll need your home networking device’s IP address to connect.
If you�re on a network with multiple networks, you�ll need to set up separate tunnels for each home network to make it work.
To do this, head to Settings > Networking and select your home home network and then Networks.
Click on the Connections tab.
On the left side of the window, click the plus sign next to the network name and the arrow next to Connections to expand it.
Under Connection Settings, click Advanced Settings.
You should see an IP address field under the Connectations section.
Select the IP address of your home IP address and then click Connect.
Once the connection is established, you should see the OpenConnect icon in the upper right-hand corner of your screen.
Click the Add button to start configuring the network.
You will be prompted to create an account.
If the Open Network Manager interface isn�t visible, you will need to add an account to configure a new connection to your network.
For this tutorial, I will be using an account named peter.
Your username and password are [email protected]
Once your account is created, select the account from the drop-down menu.
On next screen, click OK to confirm the changes.
Now, open your network browser to navigate to your router�s IP address, and make sure you�m on the home network as shown in Figure 1.

Your home network will look something like this if you�d configured it correctly: Your phone or tablet should now look like Figure 2, with the IP of your device and the IPs of the two devices connected to it.
Figure 2: Your device connected to your device on the network you�t selected in the previous step.
Your network interface will look like this: Figure 3: Your IP address on your home device and your IP address at the router.
Now that your network interface is set up, you need to start connecting your home devices to your corporate networks.
Figure 4 shows the setup for your corporate home network in OpenVPN.
OpenVPN will start automatically, but you may have to configure it manually.
To open the VPN client, go to Settings.
On your first screen, under Connections, select Network Settings.
Click Connections and click the Add Button.
On this screen, choose a device to connect from and click Connect Now.
Your device will appear on the screen in Figure 5.
Your screen should now be like Figure 6.
Figure 6: Your VPN client now looks like Figure 7.
You are now connected to the corporate network on your corporate router.
Open VPN on your desktop computer To connect your phone or laptop from your corporate device to your desktop PC, you have to create a new network connection.
In the OpenNetwork Manager interface, go back to your IP settings and select the new connection you just made.
Your connection should look something similar to Figure 7: Your desktop network will appear as Figure 8.
You have now connected your phone and laptop to the same computer.
Figure 8: Your corporate network will now look something more like Figure 9.
The network connection will look similar to this: The phone and the laptop will now be able to communicate with each other.
Now you can see your corporate phone and home network connected.
When your device is connected to a corporate home computer, you now have a private home network with an OpenVPN tunnel to the other end of the network (Figure 9).
