How does SoftEther VPN Work?

When you connect to the Internet, your computer is assigned an IP address. This IP address is unique to your machine, and allows other devices on the network to identify and communicate with it. However, this IP address can change over time – for example, if you disconnect from the network and reconnect later, or if you move to a different location.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) allows you to create a secure connection to another network over the Internet. VPNs can be used to access region-restricted websites, shield your browsing activity from prying eyes on public Wi-Fi, and more.

SoftEther VPN is a free and open-source software application that implements virtual private network (VPN) techniques for creating secure point-to-point or site-to-site connections in routed or bridged configurations and remote access facilities. It runs on Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, FreeBSD, Solaris and embedded systems using standard processors.

Using SoftEther VPN is relatively simple. The first thing you need to do is download and install the software from the official website. Once installed, launch the program and enter your login credentials. By default, the program will create a shortcut on your desktop.

Now, double-click on the shortcut and enter your server IP address. In the “Connect to” field, select “SoftEther VPN.” Enter your username and password again when prompted and click “OK.” The client will now connect to your server and establish a secure tunnel.
