How to set up a VPN on a GLiNet Router

Before we start an active ZoogVPN subscription is required and your device must be connected to the Internet.

GLiNet Router OpenVPN Installation

OpenVPN is an open-source VPN protocol that makes use of virtual private network (VPN) techniques to establish safe site-to-site or point-to-point connections.

GL.iNet routers have pre-installed OpenVPN Client and Server.

Download OpenVPN Configuration Files according to your VPN Plan. Unzip the archive file and save the folder.

Alternatively, you can download the server configuration you need separately via this link.

Step 1 – “Add a New OpenVPN Configuration”

Step 2 – “Upload your OpenVPN configuration file”

Simply drag and drop your file to the pop up window.

Step 3 – “Enter Description, Username and Password”

Enter a description for your OpenVPN configuration file and then click “Submit” to finish the upload process. In some cases, it will ask you to enter the username and password. “Username” is your ZoogVPN account email and “Password” is your ZoogVPN account password.

Step 4 – “Connect to the OpenVPN server”

You can now click “Connect” to start the OpenVPN connection.

Once connected, you should find your IP address, data received/sent.

Note that you can’t running VPN Client and Server at the same time.

Manage configuration files

Click “Management” to check the list of configuration files. You can modify the Description, User name and Password of each configuration file. You can also add, delete a configuration file or even purge all your uploaded configuration files.

Enjoy! You have now taken control of your Internet freedom, privacy, and security.
