L2TP Client VPN Configuration Guide


Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP) is a tunneling protocol used to support virtual private networks (VPNs) or as part of the delivery of services by ISPs. It does not provide any encryption or confidentiality by itself. Rather, it relies on an encryption protocol that it passes within the tunnel to provide privacy.


To configure L2TP client navigate to “VPN → VPN Clients” and set the following and click.

Please refer to the figure and table below for the configuration description.
