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.
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.
Before we get started, you’ll need to make sure that your computer meets the minimum system requirements for the SoftEther VPN client. You’ll need:
Windows 7 SP1/8/8.1/10 (32- or 64-bit)
A processor capable of running SSE2 instructions
100 MB of available hard disk space
Administrator privileges on your computer
Once you’ve verified that your system meets the requirements, you’re ready to begin downloading and installing SoftEther. There are two ways to get the SoftEther VPN client: direct download from the developer or via a third-party website. We recommend going directly to the source whenever possible as it ensures that you’re getting an authentic version of the software free from malware or other unwanted programs.
To start, visit https://www.softether-download.com/. Near the top of the page, you should see a section labeled “SoftEther VPN Client + Bridge License [Free] Download Version 4
First, download and install the software from the SoftEther Download Center.
Once installed, double-click on “Add VPN Connection.”
This will bring you to the “New VPN Connection Properties” screen. Double-click again to enter.
Then, simply double-click the newly created VPN connection to connect.
And that’s it! You should now be connected to SoftEther VPN on your Windows device.
