Virtual Private Network (VPN) allows for a secure connection to home or branch office over Internet. VPN consists of two parts the server which is implemented in the router and the client VPN which is used by the client PC application or OS to access office or home network.


User-Friendly implements standard VPN (PPTP - Point to Point Tunneling Protocol) which is supported by windows OS.

To setup VPN


1- Make sure the operating mode is Router Mode. Confirm Router LED is ON. If router LED is OFF, use ROUTER switch to change operating mode to Router Mode.


2- After you setup Internet connection, go to WEB UI diagnostic and record your WAN or Internet IP.


2.1 Register for Dynamic DNS with DynDNS or TZO . DynDNS and TZO have dynamic DNS service which translate your unique domain name "yourhostname.domainname.com" to the temporary global IP given by ISP.




2.2 Go to "WAN/LAN" | "DDNS" tab and select the DNS service you will be using. Next enter your service account information.

Next, check Enable VPN option and push "Apply" Button.


4- To create a list of users that can access the network through VPN, click "Edit PPTP user list"




Enter user name and password. Next, push "Add User" button. Keep a record of User name and passwords.
