I see that KX-NCS 8102 IP softphone module seems to be aimed at travelers and talks about connecting with available WIFI and lan connections..... so it would seem to not need a router, hardware vpn and special hardware ip addresses.

Is that correct?

I think I need software vpn on the remote laptop
(or is this included with the softphone?

What kind of vpn/router is required on the main site end? (this is on a KX NCP1000 system.)

Any client->server VPN connection on the laptop should work. Normally a company's existing IT guy would set this up.

Windows has VPN client capability built-in, but some routers such as the Cisco RV042 have a special (free) proprietary VPN client you have to use.

The VPN connection has nothing to do with the softphone; once it's established the softphone will simply talk to the private IP's of the PBX.
