 A bridge-mode OpenVPN server can tunnel any ethernet frame over a single port, preferably a UDP port.  Therefore, AppleTalk packets, encapsulated into UDP packets, can survive over the IP-only wireless signal. ​ This also implies that all ethernet activity on the network can be extended over the Internet to remote OpenVPN clients. A bridge-mode OpenVPN server can tunnel any ethernet frame over a single port, preferably a UDP port.  Therefore, AppleTalk packets, encapsulated into UDP packets, can survive over the IP-only wireless signal. ​ This also implies that all ethernet activity on the network can be extended over the Internet to remote OpenVPN clients.
  
-Obviously the main challenge here is to set up the OpenVPN server. A bridge-mode OpenVPN server is an extremely powerful tool that everyone should know about. ​ It can be run using free software only and allows you to extend all layer-2 LAN communication over wireless and over the Internet. ​ The guide for setting up such a server in a Linux VM is here:+Obviously the main challenge here is to set up the OpenVPN server.

 To be clear, the VPN must make use of ethernet bridging. ​ Most VPNs are the layer-3 routed type and will not work. To be clear, the VPN must make use of ethernet bridging. ​ Most VPNs are the layer-3 routed type and will not work.
