    I'm looking for an easy and affordable solution to setup and (almost forget) WebDAV server with VPN access.

    This is going into my parents house, so there needs to be a level of simplicity. Basically, the iPhone or iPad will connect to the VPN and allow for WebDAV (file transfers between the storage device and iPhone/iPad). Does anyone make such a standalone device?

    I know Western Digital makes a network drive that you can access anywhere and provides 'Cloud' like service, however, this data isn't tied into a VPN. Is there an all-in-one solution or would I need to provide a VPN router? Which VPN routers work with iPhone/iPad?

    Why the VPN? Can't you just use a WebDAV solution over SSL?

    I believe the security certificate needs to be accepted (unless I purchase one) and some apps error out because there's no code implemented to accept this self-signed cert.

    But I guess its worth a shot to look into!
