Working SSB contests with a Maestro over hotel WiFi presents some challenges.  Below is a link to a summary I wrote about my experience working NAQP from a hotel.  It includes some information about how to navigate hotel WiFi and make your Maestro work with it.

Colin, could you describe what you are using for a VPN server?

Right now I'm using a Windows 2012 R2 server running Routing and Remote Access.  In the past, I used a Cisco firewall as my VPN server.  Now many of the inexpensive home routers will act as a VPN server too.  Functionally they are all similar.
