Once installed is step by step process.
- Before connecting make sure that you select localhost and definitely create your cert before proceeding
- Password leave blank as you will be prompt to set one up when connecting
- Once you create your cert and password is a step by step process nothing too complicated.
- Bridge-- select your hub and then select your ethernet connections
- This software dont think it will enable or talk to the proper ports therefore is a manual process to enable ports 4500-500 1701 for VPN and OPENVPN on your router.
- VPN ports are only UDP so forward those on your routers "ISP ROUTER" to your IP. For most people this is common sense but for the ones that in a learning curve...
- IPsec/LT2P == make sure you select those as per this picture clickhere your IPsec shared key is needed. you will need when connecting as the client. if from connecting from win7 or machine. make sure you go to the properties under your VPN connection (once this has been created) go to the security tap and change it to LT2P - click advanced and add your SHared Key there otherwise you will not connect
