Published On: May 15, 2018 

Vigor3900 and Vigor2960 support OpenVPN since firmware version 1.4.0. Unlike other VPN protocols, OpenVPN offers Network Administrator the flexibility to choose transmission protocol, port number, and encryptions. It's an open-source application that you can find the client software for every platform. This article demonstrates how to set up Vigor3900 and Vigor2960 as an OpenVPN server for remote dial-in clients.

1. Add an OpenVPN User Profile at User Management >> User Profile page:
