Peplink is officially releasing a solution that would enable the integration of our devices with OpenVPN clients. By creating a virtual WAN that supports OpenVPN client mode, you will now be able to securely connect to any device with OpenVPN.
Our OpenVPN client mode will be officially supported in the 8.1.1 firmware build and the license key will only cost a 1-time payment of $19.99!
What is OpenVPN client mode?
OpenVPN client mode is our solution to get you connected to other devices using OpenVPN. By purchasing our OpenVPN client mode licence, an OpenVPN compatible virtual WAN will be created for you to connect to any other device using OpenVPN.
OpenVPN WAN is a standalone “WAN” which will appear in both your router and your InControl2 dashboards. You will be able to configure the priority of the physical WANs to connect to the OpenVPN server (similar to IPsec’s “WAN Connection Priority”). You can also customize OpenVPN’s outbound policy, firewall, etc.
Which models will support OpenVPN client mode?
All Peplink or Pepwave router models will support OpenVPN client mode.
Can I use SpeedFusion technology with OpenVPN?
Yes, you will be able to use SpeedFusion technology concurrently with OpenVPN once you update to firmware version 8.1.1. However, if you want true hot-failover and bandwidth bonding the only solution is SpeedFusion.
Where can I get the firmware 8.1.1?
Firmware version 8.1.1 has not been released yet, but we are working very hard to get it to you as soon as possible. In fact, we are just doing some final adjustments and will be releasing firmware version 8.1.1 soon, but until then, you can go here to download the special build firmware to begin using OpenVPN client mode.
How do I set up and use OpenVPN?
