I just signed up with Nord VPN. Instead of configuring all my devices to use it,, I wanted it to be configured on my VR1600v router. Can this be done?

Hi @evo90210,

 

Welcome to the TPG Community!

 

I would suggest contacting NordVPN to clarify if this is possible. According to their website, it seems like they discontinued the support for common VPN protocols L2TP/IPsec and PPTP.

 

Here's a link to their website providing a list of popular routers that are no longer supported: https://support.nordvpn.com/Connectivity/Router/1225872552/Not-supported-routers.htm

Hello,

 

I am a little confused.  

 

According to the Nord VPN website https://support.nordvpn.com/Connectivity/Router/1047409322/Setting-up-a-router-with-NordVPN.htm :

 

"For a VPN connection on your router to work, it has to support OpenVPN. Furthermore, it has to support it as a "Client" (as opposed to a "Server") to allow you to connect it to NordVPN servers."

 

Under VPN settings for my VR1600v, there does appear to be a configuration option for OpenVPN.  By default, the checkbox "Enable VPN Server" is deselected, so by this, I assuming it is operating as a client instead of a server, as specified by Nord.

 

Does this mean that Nord VPN can in fact be configured on the VR1600v router?

 

Thank you,
