    Do you need to access devices from both sides?  This is the main difference of site to site VPN.

    Example:

    A <---> B

    A can see devices on B, and B can also see devices on A.  A and B must have different subnets. 

    Client-Server VPN.  (another VPN we support, which is simpler)

    A ----> B

    A sees all devices on B, but B can't see A.  This is primarily used for work from home or VPN into company ...

    Hello, 

    and thanks for responding! I think what I need is this: 

     

    A ---> B  ---> Netflix 

    My daughter "A" accesses Netflix via VPN through my home router "B" and then of course, hopefully, Netflix will "think" she is local in my city. 

    I will never need any access from B to A (my house "A" to devices in her house "B")

    It would be a bonus if the same VPN "B" on my end, could be used by me to access the internet in a more stealth/secure way.

    Your problem can be simpler.  If she only accesses netflix via tablet or smartphone or PC, you just need to purchase one box.  (we recommend the blue, in case she watch in 4k) Place firewalla box at your house and she can just VPN into it from her device. (no need firewalla on her end). 

    But... if she wants to watch it on apple TV, she will need a Firewalla box on her side and do client to server VPN.  (you don't need site to site).  

    As of stealth mode, see https://help.firewalla.com/hc/en-us/articles/115004274633-Firewalla-VPN-Server

    If you are outside home, you can use it to protect yourself.  If you want to hide from your service provider, that won't work
