Once you have OpenVPN installed, open the configuration file in a text editor and fill in the following information:
– Your public IP address
– The port you want to use for VPN connections
– The protocol (udp or tcp)
– The cipher (we recommend AES-256-CBC)
– The compression algorithm (we recommend LZO)
Save the configuration file and then start the OpenVPN server with the following command: ./openvpn –config /path/to/configuration/file
To set up a VPN server at home, you’ll need to purchase a VPN router. These are special routers that have been designed to work with VPNs. Once you have your router, setting up the server is relatively simple. Just follow the instructions that come with your router.
Once your VPN server is up and running, you’ll be able to connect to it from anywhere in the world. All you’ll need is an internet connection and a laptop or smartphone with a VPN client installed. There are many differentVPN clients available, so make sure to choose one that’s compatible with your device and operating system.
Setting up a VPN at home is an easy way to keep your data safe and secure when using public Wi-Fi or other unsecured networks. It’s also a great way to access region-locked content from anywhere in the world. So if you’re looking for privacy and security online, setting up a VPN server at home is definitely worth considering!
Once you’ve confirmed that your router supports PPTP VPN passthrough, you’ll need to log into your router and forward port 1723 to the internal IP address of the computer that will be running the PPTP VPN server.
Next, you’ll need to install the Network Policy Server (NPS) role on the computer that will be running the PPTP VPN server. The NPS role can be installed via the Server Manager console in Windows Server 2012 or later.
Once the NPS role has been installed, you’ll need to configure it for use with PPTP VPNs. This can be done by opening the NPS console and navigating to Policies > Connection Request Policies. From here, you should create a new policy with conditions that allow access from devices using Microsoft Chap Protocol and specify your internal network as the remote address range. Once this policy has been created, go ahead and apply it to whatever servers or clients will be connecting to your PPTP VPN server. Finally open Ports 500 & 4500 UDP on Firewall
Now that everything is set up on the server side, we can move on to configuring our client computers
First, you’ll need to choose a VPN provider. There are many different VPN providers out there, so make sure to do your research and pick one that’s right for you.
Once you’ve chosen a provider, sign up for an account and download their VPN software. Then, open up the software and follow the prompts to set up your new VPN connection.
You’ll be asked to enter some basic information, such as your username and password, as well as the server address that you’d like to connect to. Once you have everything entered correctly, click “Connect” and your VPN should now be live!
Now that your VPN is all set up, enjoy enhanced privacy and security whenever you go online!
