Enter your DNS name if you already have one. If your WAN IP address is dynamic, this is the best way to prevent link errors when your Internet Service Provider (ISP) updates your WAN IP address. Then, if necessary, modify the Port, Protocol, and IP Address Range subnets.
This button downloads the OpenVPN profile that you’ll need to give to users who can use the OpenVPN feature to connect to your home network. After you’ve finished configuring the router’s OpenVPN functionality, click to save the profile with the current OpenVPN settings.
Step 8: Create profiles for each user by entering their Username and Password. These are the credentials you’ll need to use the OpenVPN application to connect to your network.

IMPORTANT: You can build up to 25 profiles for your network, but only five (5) connections to the router are allowed. When the maximum number of users is reached, you’ll see a message that says “Max number of users reached.”
What are the benefits of using a different VPN protocol? A PPTP connection is simple to set up and use, and it is quick. It is recommended for users who are primarily concerned with ease of setup and access to blocked or limited content or websites in their area. Since PPTP is not as stable and reliable as TLS, it is not recommended for those whose primary goal is network encryption and security. Other VPN protocols are inaccessible or banned in some countries, so PPTP is a better choice than none.
OpenVPN, which offers speed and stability, is the obvious winner in the VPN protocol wars, but it is not a standard feature in most operating systems. When it comes to VPN services, we suggest OpenVPN because it often provides the best of both worlds (speed and security).
