What does VPN mean?
VPN comes from "Virtual Private Network", meaning a virtual private network - a connection that can securely connect two give more computers securely.
More specifically, the VPN makes a secure tunnel between two or more computers connected to the Internet.

What does VPN use?
With VPN connections, two company subsidiaries or more schools can connect remotely.
With VPN, you can secure your connection when you are on a public or insecure WI-FI.

How does VPN work?

As in many other protocols, we have a SERVER - CLIENT type system.
The server does the hard work, because it has to keep track of users, manage connections - instead the client only has to connect when it needs to.
The client just needs to know the log-in data and follow the protocol, the rest of the server deals with it.

Where do I get a VPN server router?

I recommend Asus routers - I have had a router for several years ASUS RT-AC56U Which I am very pleased with. Now that's not the case, but there are many models you have what you choose.

What do the Asus routers have?

Currently the manufacturer is with The best routers on the market. Asus routers are also blasted with functions that are more useful.

Why is VPN important to us?

Because we are increasingly relying on digitized data, it is good to consider data security as well.
Our data flies through the air in the form of radio waves, and if they are not well encrypted we can have problems.

Information is not a joke.

It is extremely important to make sure that at all times our connections are as safe as possible and that we are not a safe victim of hackers who generally attack vulnerable connections.

  2. Hello Cristi,

    The same router model I have and is connected to a Digi (Epon) modem (dynamic IP) modem.
    How can I make DDNS work, especially that offered by Asus? If I make a severe on this router I can not always connect because the IP is changing. In the past when we had the net from AKTA it worked smoothly, but ASUS handled the PPPoE connection and did not go through another modem like in the present case.

    Thank you!

    Merci fain!
    I have this router on your recommendation at that time. We really needed this VPN feature for financial stuff, but also for an IP camera and an alarm system.

  16. Cristi, I configured it after the tutorial presented, I plugged into the house on the phone and went great.
    Today, being in the city, I tried to connect from the same phone to my home router and did not go. Connection error.
    What is the reason? Thank you.

    • You have to do port forwarding if you are after a modem.
      If your home goes and another network does not work, even after you have made port forwarding, it means you have ports locked by your service provider.

  17. Are not you around here?

  18. Would you please tell me how I could make a VPN connection with Open VPN on iOS? Or a VPN tutorial for iOS! Thank you!

  19. One question, I have a gigabit connection from RDS with an Asus router. I made the VPN server, the problem was with port forwarding, I had to make the setting from the Open VPN Server did not go from PPTP VPN. Everything works just fine as the connection to the router becomes 100Mbs. When I Defect VPN Server Goes To 1000Mbs.E Normal?

    Thank you!
