Hi Carl

In the remote end you need to have dynamic ipsec configured to allow the clients to login since your DSL ip may be dynamic in nature and change whenever you login .

is this possible, How would my clients know what my dsl address would have changed to as its not static ?

There are two scenarios when you say you want to do VPN on your DSL Router.

1. DSL Router as a VPN Client - In this case, most likely you will be getting a DHCP IP Address from your Service Provider and the remote end to which you are going to connect or VPN in, must be configured to accept dynamic connections. So, eventhough your source IP Address keeps changing (DHCP), the remote end would check for Encryption Standard, Hashing Algorithm, Pre-shared Key or Certificates, etc and then allow you to form a VPN Tunnel.

2. DSL Router as a VPN Server - In this case, you need to have a Static IP Address, So, the users or other VPN Peers know what IP they have to connect to.

Let me know if it helps.
