    Hi,

    I have an Asus RT-AC68U router that I tried with three different merlin firmware versions.
    But I never get the options for IPsec VPN in the VPN section?

    Is there anywhere I can enable this?

    Grateful for help!

    Not supported on that model, only Asus can add support for it as it requires kernel level changes.

    Okay, thank you for your answers. Is there any other model that supports ipsec in the Asus selection?

    The 86U does (maybe others too, but I have a 86U, and the IPsec server is very efficient).

    With my firmware, IPSEC-enabled models are the RT-AC88U, RT-AC3100, RT-AC5300 and RT-AC86U.
