PPTP configuration

for ASUS router connected to LAN

This guide will show you how to configure a VPN connection for routers with firmwares that do not have a built-in support for VPN connections.

The very first step to take in configuring your router to work with our service is creating manual configuration files. In this regard, please follow a few simple steps described in our tutorial. When the configuration set is generated, open the web interface of your router in a browser. Input your login and password when required.

Select the WAN – Internet Connection tab.

Please consider the following network as an example:

Set the network parameters as follows:

Click Apply.

For checking purposes, please go to the Network Map tab.

If the previous step is done correctly, you will see the following:

That’s it! Now you have a running VPN connection via PPTP protocol on your router.
