VPN for the VR1600v useing NordVPN

Level 2

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:

I am a little confused.  


According to the Nord VPN website :


"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,
