Is there a way to create a VPN server on Yosemite/El Capitan WITHOUT buying OSX Server?

    I want to be able to VPN TO my home network from my MacBook, iPhone and iPad and I am wondering if anyone have successfully setup a VPN server (not client) on their Mac (Yosemite or El Capitan).

    I already have Dynamic DNS service, so it just a matter of:

    1). Setting up the VPN server
    2). Configure the client (built-in iOS VPN client or 3rd party like OpenVPN).

    BTW, I have no desire to spring $$$ for OSX Server.

    Give VPN Enabler for El Capitan a shot.

    I haven't tried the El Capitan version because I have a new router that blocks my ability to host a VPN server.

    Thanks for this! I'll check it out.

    In the meantime, I am testing OpenVPN Virtual Appliance. It's a full VPN server running under virtual box. What I like about it is it support tunneling over HTTPS (443), which most offices don't block.
