VPN Passthrough allows VPN tunnels to pass through the router’s firewall using IPSec, L2TP, or PPTP protocols. This document describes how to configure VPN Passthrough on the WRV200 Router.
• WRV200 Router
Configuring VPN Passthrough
Step 1. Using the configuration utility for the router choose VPN > VPN Passthrough.
Step 2. Enable the protocol that is needed for network traffic.
• IPSec Passthrough — Internet Protocol Security (IPSec) is a suite of protocols used to implement secure exchange of packets at the IP layer. It is enabled by default to allow IPSec tunnels to pass through the Router.
• PPTP Passthrough — Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP) allows the Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) to be tunneled through an IP network.
• L2TP Passthrough — Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol is the method used to enable Point-to-Point sessions via the Internet on the Layer 2 level. L2TP Passthrough is enabled by default.
Step 3. Click Save.
Note: Disabling passthrough may prevent VPN clients from connecting to your network.
