Maestro and VPN Setup ?

Can anyone tell me 'exactly' how to setup my Maestro/Flex 6500 for remote use in Florida this winter and I'm not expecting Flex to have Version 2.0 of Smart SDR ready before we leave in late December.

We will be leaving my Flex 6500 radio home with no computer operating but using a remote power-on (WEMO) for the radio. 

Does anyone have a "How to Setup Flex Maestro via VPN for Dummies" procedure? 

Which VPN company do you recommend ?

I have an TPLINK Archer C7 router at home. 

I have read a number of comments on the forums about VPN's but nothing that I could find that is a "start to finish using the Maestro".

We have high speed Internet here at home and as well in Florida (Comcast).

I'm working on automating this with a script and some other stuff... just have to try out a few things in the test lab in the next couple of weeks including wifi options. This is not a guarantee mind you, so don't wait for my solution. But if it's a pleasant surprise I am not ruling that out. :)

Hello Ria,
I've been following this post and your script. I'm curious how close are you to posting your home server endpoint?
Thanks

Soon I hope. Things have been super busy here with the holidays and my increased workload at my day job.

We had a sudden departure of one of my team members so my workload is now added to his until we fill the position. Also messes up my holidays. :(
