VyprVPN OpenVPN Setup for DD-WRT

Prior to configuring this setup, you will need to flash your router with the latest OpenVPN-capable build of DD-WRT. You can find your router and appropriate build by searching the DD-WRT database: http://www.dd-wrt.com/site/support/router-database

We do not offer assistance with flashing routers. If you need help, please consult the DD-WRT forums or DD-WRT wiki page of your make and model of router. Forums: http://www.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/

Please note: We offer limited support for this configuration due to many variables that can cause connection or performance issues. This firmware is open-source with many versions and a growing list of supported hardware. We cannot guarantee VyprVPN's performance or functionality on your router.

These instructions utilize OpenVPN 256-bit encryption.

Bold items are things you will click or edit.

1. Connect to your router via Ethernet cable and navigate to the firmware. To do this, open your browser and visit http://192.168.1.1/

2. Go to the Setup tab and click the Basic Setup sub-tab.

3. In the Network Address Server Settings (DHCP) section, fill in Static DNS 1 and Static DNS 2 with your desired DNS servers. Please note: VyprDNS is not yet available for this configuration.

Suggested DNS server addresses:

Google DNS: 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4
OpenDNS: 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220

User Pass Authentication: Enabled

persist-key
persist-tun
persist-remote-ip
verify-x509-name us4.vyprvpn.com name

NOTE: For the “verify-x509-name” line, change the example server hostname of us4.vyprvpn.com to the desired server location hostname. It needs to match what you entered in the Server IP/name field for the client options.
