OpenWRT and PPTP Pass Through

I wanted to setup a router for VPN. Use the WAN port to connect it to my main router to get internet access (DHCP), and then connect the router using PPTP to a VPN Server. For some reason I had trouble setting the firewall on my main router to properly handle it. Ended up installing this package, and it worked like a charm:

opkg install kmod-nf-nathelper-extra

Upgrade all OpenWRT packages with a single line command

opkg list-upgradable | awk -F ' - ' '{print $1}' | xargs opkg upgrade
