is there a way to get this router to dial out to a VPN server rather than being a VPN server?
That's what the "OpenVPN Client Settings" page is for.
my strongvpn only accepts pptp, sstp and l2tp.
any chance that it can initiate such a connection?
Not planned at the moment. PPTP should be considered as being unsecure now that it's fairly easy to crack it, and the two others are very rarely used.
StrongVPN also supports OpenVPN.
i was going thru the tutorial for openVPN for DD-WRT.
it's my first time playing with openVPN. I'm been using SSTP for quite a while.
i know where to paste the keys but these?
remote xx.xx.xx.xx 4398 udp
remote xx.xx.xx.xx 123 udp
remote xx.xx.xx.xx 53 udp
;http-proxy-retry # retry on connection failures
;http-proxy [proxy server] [proxy port #]
echo vpn-tt2 ovpn072
DD-WRT requires you to do half of the configuration manually. Asuswrt-Merlin's implementation is based on TomatoVPN, which lets you configure almost everything through the webui - you rarely need to manually modify the config file.
Look for tutorials designed specifically for Tomato - they are far simpler to configure. A lot of those options are controllable by webui options, or already there by default.
For StrongVPN, this is probably what you are looking for:
I don't know if this was requested before and I'd like to ask Merlin if he could add couple of more OpenVPN client configurations.
That would make switching between different VPN servers much easier and faster.
Each client can potentially take up to 5 KB of nvram (a portion of this is just for the empty settings that must be pre-allocated for every supported client). Considering NVRAM is limited to 64 KB, I'd rather not waste it for the very rare cases where someone might need more than 2. For these I'd recommend saving your router settings with different configurations, and switching between these configurations.
that's the problem with StrongVPN. it's other PPTP/SSTP/L2TP or OpenVPN.
I still have a members in the household that phones can only do L2TP and PPTP. if I were to change to OpenVPN. then I cant use either of the other 3 interface. support for at least one of the 3 is greatly appreciated.
