      Establishing a VPN Server with Your Existing Router

      Hello there!
      I m very be happy to guide you through port forwarding on your existing router for your new VPN server. Follow these steps:

      Access Router Settings:
      Log in to your existing router’s settings using a web browser. Usually, you can do this by entering the router’s IP address (e.g., in the address bar.

      Find Port Forwarding Section:
      Locate the “Port Forwarding” or “Virtual Server” section in your router settings. This may vary depending on your router model.

      Add Port Forwarding Rule:
      Create a new port forwarding rule. Specify the port range used by your VPN server (commonly 1194 for OpenVPN). Also, input the local IP address of your new VPN server.

      Choose Protocol:
      Select the protocol used by your VPN (usually UDP for OpenVPN). Some VPNs may use TCP, so check your VPN server’s documentation.

      Save Settings:
      Save the changes, and your router will now forward incoming VPN traffic to your new VPN server.

      Remember, the exact steps can vary based on your router model, so consult your router’s manual or online documentation if needed. After completing these steps, your VPN server should be accessible from the internet through the public IP of your existing router. If you encounter issues, double-check the settings and ensure your VPN server is configured correctly.

      For setting up a VPN server with your existing router and a new VPN router, port forwarding won’t be necessary on the existing router. Here’s the general approach:

      Configure your new VPN router as a VPN client, connecting it to your desired VPN service.
      On your existing router, assign it a different subnet IP address than the new VPN router. This avoids conflicts between the two networks.
      By connecting the VPN router as a client and assigning different subnets, you create a separate network for VPN traffic. This setup allows your devices to choose between the regular network and the VPN network.”

      Optional addition:

      If you want more specific instructions, mentioning the make and model of both routers would be helpful.
