I'm already using OpenVPN and Wireguard for LAN Access; this is a question out of curiosity since I am tinkering with IPsec for fun (though if it does allow me to access devices on the LAN, it would be a helpful backup seeing as it's natively implemented into Windows and...

    How to make this VPN Director working?

    A small retrospective: I have configured VPN client before to make my home network behinf NAT visible for me when remote. It worked like a charm. But now we have new firmware update - and it was broken. I've tried to configure VPN Director to allow a correct routing: It does not work though...

    VPN Client to allow access to home network

    Hi all. From some time my home provider uses NAT so I have no "white IP" anymore. However I am using Oracle Cloud VPS with OpenVPN-AS installed on it. "Using" means I connect all my portable devices to this VPN being in trip. So my idea is to connect the router to the same VPN but limiting...

    Access to Asus router from WAN?

    I have just upgraded to the AX88U and want to query remotely accessing the router. I can set up, and have tested remote access and it works fine. HTTPS is on with WAN access restricted to one device. DDNS has also been set up. Is this safe? Is anyone else happily using this? Running latest...

    It was discovered "by mistake", but it cannot be described any other way but serious: Asus has introduced DDNS and remote management support into Asus Router mobile app for Android. It might be nice feature to have, but there is one big BUT in this implementation - if router is added/linked to...
