How to set up OysterVPN on GL.iNet router (3.x firmware)

OpenVPN is an open-source VPN protocol that establishes secure site-to-site or point-to-point connections using virtual private network (VPN) protocols. However, OpenVPN Client and Server are pre-installed on GL.iNet routers.

This is a tutorial on how to set up OysterVPN on GL.iNet router (3. x firmware):

  1. Start by logging into your GL. iNet router by entering this as your IP address. Take a look at the backside of your router to find your router’s default gateway, but the gateway IP should be different for your particular router.
  2. Go to the VPN tab and select OpenVPN Client.
  3. Now click on Add a New OpenVPN Configuration after you’ve logged in to the router.
  4. Import OysterVPN’s list of servers in the new window.
  5. A new window will open to confirm that the file was successfully uploaded.
  6. After that, you’ll be prompted to input your OysterVPN credentials, which you can find in the section titled “Find your login details.” Fill in the following details as given below:
    • Description: choose a username for your profile
    • Username: fill in the username you previously collected
    • Password: fill in the username you previously collected
    • Click Submit
  7. In the OpenVPN section, a new VPN profile will be generated.
  8. If you have more than one VPN profile, select the one you just established from the drop-down menu by clicking the arrow and then pressing the Connect button.
  9. You’ve completed the installation and configuration of OysterVPN on your GL. iNet router (3. x firmware)! As long as you are connected, your location is confidential, and your sensitive data is safe.
