    VPN on TD-W8980

    Region : UnitedKingdom

    Model : TD-W8968

    Hardware Version : V1

    Firmware Version : april 2013

    ISP : BT


    Hi,

    I just got a TD-W8990 as it was advertised as having VPN functionality.

    Looking at the instructions i can see that it is possible to create a VPN tunnel with another Router somewhere. However, what i need is to be able to connect from my laptop to my network (served by the TD-W8990) from whereever i may have a connection.

    I currently do this with another router where I connect to my network using a VPN client (software) that i use on my laptop. I can connect from wherever i am as if i was connected to my network).

    Is this possible at all with the TD-W8990? Could i use a standard VPN client with the right settings to connect to this router?

    Many thanks in advance for your help

    Hi, Jo.
    TD-W8990? Do you mean TD-W8980?
    "Is this possible at all with the TD-W8990? Could i use a standard VPN client with the right settings to connect to this router?"
    No. I think TD-W8980 can not work as VPN server for you to use a standard VPN client to connect.
    As I know, TD-W8980 supports PPTP, L2TP, IPsec VPN passthrough and IPsec VPN.
