Setting up VPN on Peplink balance 20

In the Network section of peplink balance 20, I create a v.p.n using the pep.v.p.n . However; under status it stated that it is starting rather than saying established. This is something I need assistance in setting up , mainly because I need to access this router remotely and because the v.p.n. is not set up properly coughss I cannot.

Also is Peplink balance 20 capable of running CyberGhost VPN? If so, please replied with instructions thoroughly.

As to the VPN “starting”: What message to you see on the OTHER Peplink router when you see “starting” on the one in front of you?

CyberGhost: No. I’d be curious as to your use case wherein you find that PepVPN is insufficient.

Under status next to the VPN, it states “Starting”. Could you walk me through that?(referring to setting up the pepvpn).

PepVPN is a secure (AES256) router-to-router VPN. My question is: What message do you see on the other router? “Starting …?” Answer this question and I’ll take you step-by-step to get it working.

Ok, I im going into the profile to edit it. Can you please walk me through as I tell you what they ask for

Please reply as soon as possible

To use PepVPN you would set it up on two Peplink devices (to create a VPN between them).

Sounds to me like you want the Balance 20 to connect to an online VPN service to protect your internet traffic. You mentioned Cyberghost - I can’t see a way to use that (I have a CG account also and have tried).

Instead I would consider hosting your own VPN gateway appliance. You have a free license for Fusionhub (solo) that you can use on any virtual hosting platform pretty much. I host a lot on @ $5/month and they work great.
