Surf Soho - VPN Client Mode - NordVPN - How to


  1. Was told that this device can be a VPN client, supports OPEN VPN, is that true/accurate?
  2. If it can we want to connect the WAN port to NordVPN, we have the two NordVPN .ovpn files for both TCP and UDP but cannot figure out what to do with the device to get them to work.

Are there any details of exactly what is needed to get this linked up?

Add your login info (for your login you can use the email/password or the service account credentials) just below that and choose your WAN connections. Save and apply changes should connect shortly after that.
