Configure Huawei router for OpenVPN

Post by londonpeteharrison » Mon Oct 25, 2021 4:15 pm

I have set up an account and tried running the OpenVPN cloud connect app, but want to configure my Huawei B525-232 router to connect automatically. The config on the router ask for the following;

Connection type - L2TP VPN client or PPTP VPN client
LNS address
Hostname
Tunnel password
Handshake interval (s) 60
PPP user name
PPP password
Authentication Auto

I'm not sure what these settings refer to on the client app. Any help most appreciated.

Regards
Pete

Hello londonpeteharrison,

The VPN connection type L2TP and PPTP are not compatible with OpenVPN. If it doesn't have that option you can't connect it directly.
