VPN Client to use
« on: November 26, 2015, 11:31:21 AM »
Hello,
I have been tinkering of the idea with replacing my home NBN Router (TP Link N750 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router, TL-WDR4300) with something else. The reason is that I would like to run my Torrent client through a VPN and my NAS drive that my Torrent client sits on is a Thecus N2200 and as far as i can see I cannot install a VPN client on it.
I have also read that it is generally not very good for performance if I try and run a VPN client on my router as it is not powerful enough to handle it.
So I thought why not replace the router.
So my question is, if I use T1n1wall, can I either install a VPN client (I am looking at cyberghost VPN) or configure it to us a VPN service?
Thanks

t1n1wall can be a VPN server with PPTP and L2TP, and also mobile ipsec.

However, what you want is t1n1wall to be a VPN client, it doesn't do this.  you might be able to use the IPSEC feature to setup an IPSEC tunnel to your VPN service , you would have to test and see does it work, but I suspect it won't.

Feel free to try it and ask questions, but the simpler solution is to use pfSense or OPNsense that have an openvpn client in them, and there are plenty of VPN services that support pfSense doing what you want to do
