    Squeezebox Radio & VPN?

    Can Squeezebox Radio or any Squeezebox product (even any other network radio player) support a VPN client (OpenVPN would be nice)?

    I want to be able to listen to Tokyo FM through SBR but radiko.jp (their streaming service) locks out any IPs from outside of Japan. On my desktop I go around this through VPN connection to Tokyo and it works perfectly fine but I don't want to be dependent on any of my computers being turned on just because I want to listen to some music/radio. Thus my quest for a network radio player but with that specific issue in mind. I'm going to be using NAS (Synology) to access my "regular" music collection so two step solution (SBR+NAS) is possible.

    I think the easiest way to do this would be to use a vpn compatible router (dd-wrt) or to use a dns redirection service (like unblockus, but with Japanese redirection) on your router.
