VPN Service Help
The VPN Service function allows you to access your home network in a secured way through the Internet when you are out of home. In addition, when you are out of the country, you can use the VPN Service to access the Internet sites or services for which there is a geographic limitation and they are not accessible outside the country. To use the VPN Service, you will need to locate your router through the Internet when you are out of home. There are two ways to do that and the suggested way is to use the Dynamic DNS service. The other way is to locate your router through its public Internet address and it is better to have static IP address settings for the router's Internet connection. Please make sure you have either the Dynamic DNS service enabled or static IP address settings for your Internet connection. This service will only work with OpenVPN clients and will not work with any other VPN clients.
OpenVPN configuration package download
To install the VPN client, here you can find the proper configuration files base on your client operating system. For Windows and MAC, the configuration is using TAP mode for best compatibility for applications. For iPhone and Android, the configuration is using TUN mode due to OpenVPN APP limitation.
Please be aware that, after changing the VPN advanced configuration, DDNS setup, or any Internet setting changes, you need to re-download the configuration file and replace to your client.
OpenVPN client setup instruction
To use the VPN Service, you need to install the VPN client software on each device where you want to create a VPN connection to the router. Please click on the client operating system for the instruction. Currently we support for Windows, MAC, iPhone, and Android.
This section is only used for advanced setting. You don’t need to change anything here for the VPN to work properly.
TUN Mode Service Type:
You can use either TCP or UDP protocol to transmit the VPN packets for TUN Mode.
TUN Mode Service Port:
This is the VPN Server port number to which a VPN client connects for TUN mode. The default is 12973.
TAP Mode Service Type:
You can use either TCP or UDP protocol to transmit the VPN packets for TAP Mode.
TAP Mode Service Port:
This is the VPN Server port number to which a VPN client connects for TAP mode. The default is 12974.
Clients will use this VPN connection to access:
There are three options "Auto", "Home Network only" and "All sites on the Internet & Home Network". With the "Home Network only" option, a VPN client can access only the Home Network through the VPN Service. If you want to access the Internet sites or services with a geographic limitation when you are out of the country, you have to select the option "All sites on the Internet & Home Network". Please note that once you have selected this option, your VPN client will also access Internet sites and services that do not have a geographic limitation. For an Internet site or service that is normally accessible through the Internet (for example, public networks that do not have a geographic limitation), the access speed through the VPN Service is slower than the access speed without going through the VPN. The "Auto" option will do some intelligence checking and try to use the VPN Service only for necessary accesses (i.e. only for sites or services that are not accessible if not going through the VPN Service), but this is just a best effort function and a correct determination cannot be guaranteed.
Dynamic DNS Help
A Dynamic DNS (DDNS) service provides a central public database where information (such as e-mail addresses, host names, and IP addresses) can be stored and retrieved. The Dynamic DNS server also stores password-protected information and accepts queries based on e-mail addresses.
If you want to use a DDNS service, you must register for it. The Dynamic DNS client service provider will give you a password or key.
To set up for DDNS:
- Select the Use A Dynamic DNS Service check box to enable the Dynamic DNS function.
- If you have not registered with a DDNS service provider, select NETGEAR from the Service Provider list. Otherwise select the name of your Dynamic DNS service provider from the list.
- If this is your first time to use the NETGEAR DDNS service, please select No for the question Do you have a NETGEAR DDNS account?. Otherwise you can select Yes and then enter your account information.
- Type the host name that you wish to use this device. This is sometimes called as a domain name.
- Type the email address you want to use for your DDNS account.
- Type the password (or key) for your DDNS account.
- Click Register to register for the NETGEAR DDNS service.
Note: The router supports only basic DDNS, and the login and password might not be secure. If you have a private WAN IP address, do not use DDNS service as it can lead to problems.
Static Routes Help
Static routes give the router information that it cannot learn automatically through other means. This can happen when RIP is disabled on the LAN. (See the LAN IP Setup screen.) All defined static routes appear in the table. You add or delete a route in the area under the Static Routes table.
To set up a static route:
- Click the Add button.
- Type a route name for this static route in the Route Name field under the table.
- (This is for identification purposes only.)
- Select Private if you want to limit access to the LAN only.
- Select Active to make this route effective.
- Type the destination IP address of the final destination.
- Type the IP subnet mask for this destination.
- If this is for a single host, type 255.255.255.255.
- Type the gateway IP address, which must be a router on the same segment.
- Type a number between 2 and 15 as the Metric value.
- This represents the number of other routers on your network. Usually, setting this to 2 or 3 works best, but if this is a direct connection, set it to 2.
- Click Apply to enter the static route into the table.
To edit a static route:
- Click the radio button next to route you want to edit.
- Update the information.
- Click Apply when finished.
To delete a static route:
- Click the radio button next to route you want to delete.
- Click Delete.
- Click Apply to delete the static route from the table.
