Route all traffic from laptop to home network. Recommended Method?

view story

http://serverfault.com – I travel and use open wifi networks a lot. Given the nature of my work I want to route all my traffic thru my home network. My home office is well equipped to handle such a connection. Basically I need to route all traffic (all ports, udp and tcp) over SSL to my home network so its like im sitting on the same subnet. My home router is on a static IP and supports IPSec and SSL VPN as an endpoint. Right now i'm using SSH and tunneling ports one by one but its far from elegant and annoying to setup even with batch files. I have not experimented with VPN. Does this sound possible and worth looki (HowTos)
