Prohibited Uses of the Service. This section specifies that use of the Service in conjunction with a VPN (Virtual Private Network) or a VPN Tunneling Protocol is a prohibited use of the Service. See for yourself here in section 6." Apparently @Home is looking for the little bit of extra revenue they can get by selling additional IPs to people (like me) who have more than one computer. This might not be so bad if @Home provided reliable e-mail and DNS servers and other "basic" services one expects from an ISP, which they don't. This is just another piece of woe for those of us whose only broadband choice is @Home. Bah! Update: 08/14 14:16 by michael : Yes, Robin confused NAT and VPN. TLA's are a PIA.
