    Has anyone gotten IKEv2/IPSec PSK VPN to work on Android 13 with Asus-Merlin 388.1?

    Hi everyone, It seems Android stopped supporting IPSec Xauth PSK VPN starting with version 12. However, the latest versions of the Asus-Merlin firmware support IKEv2 IPSec. Unfortunately, I've been unable to get it to work with Android 13. Has anyone gotten it to work? Are there any special...

    IPSec server and web UI stop responding

    Hi folks, I've got Asuswrt-Merlin 384.8_2 running on an RT-AC88U, and it is mostly fantastic - it does pretty much everything I want, quickly and reliably.

    L2TP/IPSEC VPN client on RT-AC86U - is this possible?

    I'm curious about whether one could get an L2TP/IPSEC VPN client running on the RT-AC86U. The Merlin firmware doesn't support that - it offers an L2TP/IPSEC server, but only unencrypted L2TP as a client. (Standard Asuswrt is the same). But is there some kind of installable extension that could...

And Merlin reports that the '86u does IPSEC encryption at near 300 megabits per second. It...
