SSTP (Secure Socket Tunnel Protocol) tunnels can be used to connect to the Keenetic router's local network remotely.
NOTE: Important! The main advantage of the SSTP VPN tunnel on a Keenetic router is its ability to work through the cloud, which allows you to establish a connection between a client and a server, even on private IP addresses.
Data transfer via the Internet in the SSTP tunnel is carried out with the help of HTTPS protocol (the data is transferred over the SSL or TLS cryptographic protocols), which provides a high level of security.
To configure the SSTP connection, it is necessary to install the 'SSTP client' system component. You can do this on the 'General system settings' page in the 'Systems component options' section by clicking 'Component options'.
After that, go to the 'Other connections' page and click 'Create connection' in the 'VPN connections' section. Select 'SSTP' in the 'Type (protocol)' field in the 'VPN connection settings' window.
Then enter the name of the connection in the 'Connection name' field, and in the 'Server address' field, enter the server's domain name or IP address. In the 'Username' and 'Password' fields, specify the account allowed to access the local network via SSTP.
TIP: Tip: To configure the IP settings, work schedule or the interface through which the connection should work, click 'Show advanced settings'.
Once the connection is established, put the switch in the 'On' state.
The same page will also show the connection status.
To test the connection, access a resource on the remote network or ping the host on the remote network (server local network) from the client computer.
SSTP server configuration in Keenetic is described in detail in the article 'SSTP VPN server'.
TIP: Tip: If you want to use this connection to access the Internet, give it the highest priority. You will find information about the priorities in the article 'Connection priorities'.
