A VPN is probably the most secure method. You can also look at using some media server software like plex and others.

Wireguard is a good VPN software, straightforward and has a web GUI available for easy OpenWrt setup.

And it now has a comparable Windows client called TunSafe - that you can install your own Wireguard configs into.

OpenVPN is another good option.

Have you installed it yet?

I see it in Luci. What are the next steps?

  • Make a private key for the new interface (you will have to use the command line - see: https://www.wireguard.com/quickstart/)
  • make a private key for your peer
  • decide on numbering for the network
  • add new private key
  • create peer by adding it's public key
  • open the port on firewall for WG interface to receive inbound UDP
  • Add to a firewall zone
