Solved ASUS Merlin - Can't Add VPN Director Rules, No Buttons


New Around Here
Hi, this is just a keyword topic for anyone struggling with the same thing I did where suddenly all rules were gone and the buttons to add or remove them under VPN Settings are gone.


Well, here's a solution. this is due to a bad design where information is not told on the spot and you end up thinking that Merlin is broken.

Anyhow, to add these you now need to visit a separate TAB called VPN DIRECTOR. It's at the top

VPN Status
VPN Director
VPN Server
VPN Client
Instant Guard

Or read the changelogs?

386.3 (23-July-2021)
- NEW: Introducing VPN Director, which replaces the original
policy routing management interface for OpenVPN clients.
A bit similar to Asus's own VPN Fusion, OpenVPN routing
rules are now managed through a central web interface,
and they are stored in JFFS instead of nvram, to allow
creating more rules, and free up some nvram for
nvram-limited devices such as the RT-AC68U.
See the Wiki for more information.

Way to blame users for bad UI design :) yes, read changelogs, or read a Windows 8 book to find charms because implementation sux, nothing to do with poor UI at all, just stupid users.

When new features are added, new actions need to be learned and used.

Asking questions is an effective way to learn. Blaming anyone but yourself makes only you look bad.
