Hi, this is an important feature for cellular routers. Currently the openVPN server is not working as expected because the cellular operator is assigning a private ip address to the router but the dynamic dns resolves the public address used to access the web.

@marcobrick yes exactly... Also most of the consumer broadband connections doesn't give public ip.. they provide a private ip.

Thank you both for sharing your opinion on the VPN Client feature on the TP-Link cellular routers, we do hear some feedback that the cellular operator is assigning a private IP address to the router, and we find a customer sharing his experience and solution here, you can check if it helps:

Hello

good day

I would like to know if these published models work to configure VPN by OPENVPN protocols and configure the files that ExpressVPN provided me, which is my VPN directly from the router and not have to use the VPN application in Windows or on my Smartphone.

What is the difference between vnp client and l2tp, pptp connection? If i had known there are only specific routers with VPN client, i would have bought one of these.

@omegadoom 

 

Do you mean L2TP/PPTP connection on the router WAN as below?

 

That is one of the WAN connection types provided by the Internet Server Providers mostly in Russian, it is not commonly used for connecting to a normal VPN server, which could be encrypted. You can refer to this guide to know more about the settings:
https://www.tp-link.com/support/faq/2344/

 

You can use the newly adopted VPN Client feature to connect to some commonly known VPN servers, such as ExpressVPN or NordVPN.

Ok, it is about encryption. I think my archer c6 will never have such true vpn feature. It is probaly only for premium products like AX.
