Simple VPN

Fri Jan 19, 2018 11:31 pm

Hi,
I am new to this, never did VPN before. I need to setup a VPN in order to be able to connect to office phone system from anywhere. I have 951Ui-2nD router. Is there any step by step instructions?
Any help is welcome. I watch many videos none of them work. I have no idea what i am doing wrong.
1. I connect WAN to ethr1 on my router and my switch to ethr2.
2. Install winbox.
3. Reset and clear all settings.
4. Update winbox.
5. On Quick Set chose Home AP
6. On internet i chose automatic.
7. I setup ip for my local network.
8. Set VPN on.

Any help please thank you

Do you have any VPN server running at your office? What is it? OpenVPN, L2TP, IPSec, etc.?

I appreciate your help.
My boss install a PBX phone system at the office and he want to be able to get access on it from outside the office from his mobile. So the IT from the phone company he ask me to install a router and give access to some ports. He told me that he needs VPN. So i bought RB951Ui-2nD to do that. We don't have anything else at the office not even a server.
I have to setup the router as VPN server as you said?

Thank you

Well, if there is no VPN server at the office, then start with installing a VPN server at the office...
Explain exactly what your boss wants to access and how...

If it is VOIP that would be easy... Just needs a VOIP client on his mobile...
If not VOIP then I don't know...
