Built you one VPN and Server and how to use.

A VPN (Virtual Private Network) is frequently used in a business environment. Yet it is also for personal use sometimes useful, especially if you're far from home and connect to the Internet using unreliable Wi-Fi networks. We explain what is possible with a VPN and how you can get started.

Many know a VPN (Virtual Private Network) or of their work: you can then from home with all internal Web sites and shared files on the intranet of the company, but not without first connecting to the VPN from your company.

All network communication between your home computer (or hotel computer during a holiday), and the company runs over encrypted, so you do not leak company secrets. For example, someone who has installed a network sniffer in your home or at your hotel, you will not get a chance when all communication is via the VPN. Also to connect multiple offices of a company in a secure manner with each other VPNs are deployed.

The advantages of a remote VPN service

There are many remote VPN services that you can use for free (for a limited bandwidth) or for a fixed monthly fee use. What is it whet your appetite here? The main advantage is that you can safely surf the Internet from anywhere, even if you are required to browse through an insecure open Wi-Fi network. You then connect to the insecure network and turn immediately after a secure connection to the VPN server. Once this is done, you surf safely without sleuths around your digital doings can follow. Another advantage of such a remote VPN service is that it hides your IP address along for Web sites that you do not trust: they see that basis that the IP address of the VPN server to which you are connected. And finally, an external VPN service also convenient to circumvent region blocks: surf instance via a US VPN, you see trouble-series and movies on (Hulu).

01 Living VPN

The living room has a VPN not established yet, except perhaps as a user of a remote VPN. You can not only connect to the VPN from your company, but also with a remote VPN services, free or paid (see box "The benefits of remote VPN Service").

But did you know that it is possible for you to run a VPN server at home on the computer, so you flip the roles? You can then set up outside of a secure connection to the computer, be it a laptop, tablet or smartphone. But why would you do this? There are several reasons for this. You might find you simply handed you from home to access the files that are shared in the company of your employer and you want to do with your personal files the same.

Or maybe you want to surf the Internet anywhere safely, even if you are required to use an unsafe open Wi-Fi network. This can also a VPN connection to your home computer. All network traffic is encrypted then sent to the PC, so that a network sniffer can not eavesdrop on the insecure network and you surf than actually using the detour of the Internet service at home.

Also when you are on holiday abroad and Uitzendinggemist want to see this do to your home via a VPN connection. Uitzendinggemist Indeed block visitors from abroad, but if you browse through the computer in the Netherlands, the website looks a Dutch IP address, and it succeeds. In short, plenty of reasons to put a VPN server on your computer.

02 Preparation

Windows 7 has originally been on the possibility of setting up a VPN server that is accessible over the internet, already supports only one concurrent connection. Since your home computer, however, hangs behind a router, there is never a direct connection from the Internet to your computer and possibly your computer is not as accessible server. Therefore, you must set the router's port forwarding: If your router then receives a request from a VPN client, it sends it to your computer.

Port forwarding in the router

How the port for VPN traffic must leave forwarding in the router to the computer running the VPN server is running, depending on the model and brand of the router off. As an example, we show how this takes place in the firmware DD-WRT (dd-wrt). In the web interface of the router, click the top of the NAT / QoS and then Port Forwarding tab. Then click on the Add button and create a rule to forward a port. In the Application box, fill in what you want, for example, VPN, it only serves as a reminder for yourself. Both Port from the Port to fill in 1723 (the port number for the PPTP protocol used by the Windows VPN software). By IP Address you enter the IP address of the computer on which the VPN server is running and to Protocol click TCP. Check Enable, finally click Add to add the rule, and Save and Apply Settings to save it. In other firmware does this similar, and in some routers, you also need to forward the protocol GRE (Generic Route Encapsulation) or on an optional VPN pass-through.

Allow port 1723 forwarded to your VPN server.

The computer should always have the same local IP address on the home network, otherwise the router sends the VPN packets to the wrong computer as soon as they get a different IP address. Read under 'Always the same IP address "how to setup. A third requirement is that to achieve the modem from the outside is on a well-known IP-address. Since most ISPs to the modems of non-business subscriptions no fixed external IP address attributes, you must set up a dynamic DNS address on the router. Read under 'Dynamic DNS' how to do this.
Always the same IP addres
On most home networks share the router's IP addresses to all connected machines with the DHCP protocol (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol). Handy, because you normally computers, no network configuration needs to do more. You plug the network cable just in and the computer is assigned an IP address. Often gets your computer assigned the same IP address, but that is not guaranteed. A fixed IP address, however, with port forwarding a requirement as a server to be accessible. Fortunately, you can specify the settings of the router that the DHCP server assigns a fixed IP address to specific computers. In the web interface of our example router (DD-WRT), we find that option on the Services page by DHCP Server. All you have before you on such a job search starts here the MAC address of the network: this, right click in the Network menu on the network, select Status / Details and look at the physical address. Click in the web interface of our router, we then under Static Leases Add, we fill in, plus the host name and IP address that we want to assign the MAC address of the computer. We click Save and Apply Settings to save it.
Make sure your VPN server always receives the same IP address.
dynamic DNS
Since the external IP address of your modem is not guaranteed to stay the same, you can not enter the VPN client, because once the IP address changes, it is no longer possible to log in to the VPN server. A solution is dynamic DNS: you ask a subdomain to a (mostly free) dynamic-DNS service and the modem allows this subdomain always refer to the correct IP address. Every time the modem is assigned a different external IP address, firmware then sends a request to the dynamic DNS service to let refer the subdomain to the new IP address. Then you only need to remember the selected subdomain. In the Web interface of DD-WRT you can find the Dynamic DNS settings in the Setup> DDNS tab. Choose your dynamic DNS service in the menu and enter your username and password to the service. Also fill in the selected subdomain (eg example.dyndns) and finally click Save and Apply Settings to save the settings.
Create your router from anywhere accessible via a dynamic DNS service.

03 Your computer as a VPN server

Does your computer meet the three requirements (a fixed IP address with port forwarding set accompanied set in the router and dynamic DNS), you can start setting up the VPN server. Open the Windows Control Panel, Network and Internet, then Network and Sharing Center. In the left sidebar Change adapter settings. You will now see all your configured network connections. Press Alt to display the main menu and select the File menu, click New Incoming Connection. Windows now starts a wizard that helps you set up a VPN server.

In the first window you select which users can access the computer and the network via VPN. click Next, and then you choose in the next window on how users connect. Choose via the Internet and click Next. In the last window of the wizard, select the network protocols that are accessible. The default choice is often sufficient. Check that IPv4 is enabled and (if you want to achieve shared files on the home network) File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks. Click Allow Access, and the wizard sets the VPN connection. You will finally see a computer name that you do not necessary. When you close the window, a new compound called Incoming Connections in the Network Connections window from the Control Panel. The server configuration is now ready. As long as the computer is on, you can now log in from outside it.

04 Connecting to a VPN server in Windows setup

Go outdoors with a Windows computer you want to connect to the VPN server. Open the Windows Control Panel, Network and Internet, then Network and Sharing Center. Under the network settings change, click Set up a new connection or a new network. Windows will start a wizard that helps you configure a new network connection. Select Connect to a corporate network and then click Next. In the next step you have to choose how you connect to the VPN, which will be used in most of my Internet connection (VPN).

In the next window you give the public Internet address of the VPN server. This can be an IP address or domain name. Since our VPN server at home is not an Internet connection with a fixed IP address to enjoy, we have set up dynamic DNS and you have here so enter the subdomain you've chosen your dynamic DNS service provider (see box 'Dynamic DNS' ). In Name of target fill describes any name that the VPN connection. Then click Next.

In the next window, enter the username and password of the Windows user account on your computer at home. This account must of course be checked by authorized users in setting up the VPN server. Click Create to lock on connection and when the connection is successful, click Close.

Right now on the VPN connection in the Network menu of the Network Connections in the Control Panel and select Properties. Go to the Security tab and ensure that PPTP to the VPN type is. When Data Encryption Encryption must obligatory (disconnect if rejected) stand. Click OK, and then the connection is ready for use. This configuration you have to do it once on each computer you use to connect to the VPN server.

05 Connect

Connecting to the VPN server is simple: click on the icon for the VPN connection in the Network menu and click Connect. Enter the username and password from the VPN server when prompted (unless you chose to save it), and then again on Connect. Right click on the VPN connection in the Network menu, you can disconnect or check the status or properties.

Make sure you are using the VPN

Always check when you set up a VPN connection on your client for the first time or you really surf via the VPN. This is done through a website like (whatismyip )which shows your public IP address. Make sure it matches the IP address of the VPN server. If you know only the dynamic DNS subdomain, open a command prompt in the Windows Start menu and type the nslookup command followed by the sub-domain (for example, nslookup example.dyndns). You will then see the current IP address assigned to this domain. If this is the same as what shows (whatismyip), you browse through the VPN.

The status of the VPN connection shows information such as connection duration and the amount of traffic. Click on the button Details, you see the IP address that gets the computer of the VPN server (eg 192.168.0.100) and DNS servers used. Click the Details tab, you see what the IP address of the VPN server on the VPN, and IP address of the VPN server on the Internet. Moreover, you will also see the authentication used (MS CHAP V2) and encryption (MPPE 128).

06 Connect to a VPN server in OS X

You can also perfect from your MacBook Pro or other Mac to connect to the VPN home. For this you must again configure a VPN connection. Open System Preferences, click on the icon Network, and if necessary, click the padlock icon links below to unlock the settings.

Click the + -icon left corner to create a new network connection, and choose to Interface VPN. If VPN type, select PPTP. By Name facility you enter a name to describe the VPN connection. Click Create. Now fill in Server Address subdomain of the dynamic DNS service and Account Name your username on the Windows computer. When Encryption choose Maximum (only 128-bit).Now click Authentication Settings, enter the password associated with your Windows user name and click OK. You then checked quite well Show VPN status in menu bar, so you always know when you are connected to the VPN. Click Apply to save these settings. If you have done this once, it is connecting to the VPN server simple: click on the VPN icon and right click Connect to [your VPN name]. You hang up by another click on the icon and Disconnect with [your VPN name] to choose.

07 Connect to a VPN server in Android

Obviously, you would like to connect on the go from your smartphone or tablet to your home PC. Android supports PPTP from home, but unfortunately it has to do for years with a bug that encrypted PPTP connections on many Android devices are unstable.

Open Android settings Wireless & networks and select VPN settings. Press Add VPN, and then add VPN PPTP. VPN name, enter a name that describes your VPN connection, and VPN server setting you give the subdomain of the dynamic DNS service. Ensure encryption box is checked (unless the connection is unstable by the bug in Android and you do not need encryption). Finally, press the menu button and then Save.

The new VPN connection appears in the list of VPNs. Press it now and give the user name and password for the Windows computer. Then click Connect. During the connection you get to see the top of the icon of a lock. You can disconnect at any time by pressing the VPN settings on the name of the VPN server.

Also with Android, you can connect to the VPN server.

08 Connect to a VPN server on iOS

Also with an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch you can put on your home network through a secure connection. Press this sequence to Settings / General / Network and VPN. Press Add VPN Configuration and select the PPTP tab. At description you give a name to the VPN connection to your server enter the subdomain of the dynamic DNS service, and account and password your user name and password of the Windows computer. Ensure Encryption level to Maximum state and send all traffic. Press Save.

After this configuration switch you simply by turning on the VPN switch at the top of the list of VPN connections to the VPN connection. Wait until you see the Connected message in status. Top of the screen of your iOS device, you get a blue icon with the letters to see VPN as long as you go through this link internet.

Ask your iOS device a VPN connection to the home PC.

09 Saving Energy

The day turned Leave your desktop PC for those few times you will unexpectedly from the outside to your files, does not demonstrate an environmentally conscious setting. You are more energy efficient with a NAS or even your router as a VPN server.

Especially if you just want to set up a VPN to outside always be able to surf over an encrypted tunnel, it is excessive that you would all day gonna leave your PC through your trusted Internet. Therefore, we show you here how to enable a PPTP VPN server on the router, since they're always on. As an example, we use the open source router firmware DD-WRT, but a lot of other routers that also support.

In the Web interface of DD-WRT you click the Services tab and then click VPN. You have on this page four possibilities: PPTP Server (what we need here), PPTP Client (see also under "Your router as VPN client), OpenVPN Daemon (see the box" There is more than PPTP) and OpenVPN client. Click Enable in the first option and you see the settings of the PPTP server receives.

With your router as VPN client surfing all your devices automatically via the VPN.

In Server IP 0.0.0.0 give in. The router then looks for yourself what its WAN IP address. This address is assigned by a dynamic DNS service (see box 'Dynamic DNS') to a subdomain, you then enter the client to reach the VPN server on your router. Switch Force MPPE Encryption in. By Client IP (s) you enter the address range of IP addresses that are assigned clients. For example, set 192.168.0.200-250 and make sure the router addresses that are not accorded to internal clients.

The CHAP Secrets field finally give may impose a list of usernames and associated passwords on the VPN. That should be in the form username * password * with each account on a separate line. Click Save and Apply Settings, and then you can connect from any device external to the VPN server of your router. All you need to know to set the client, the dynamic DNS subdomain and a username and password that you set in the router.

Your router as VPN client

If you use an external VPN service, for example to circumvent region blocks, you have on any devices you want to use this VPN server, configure the connection. There is a more convenient solution: turn on a separate wireless access a VPN client (not a server!) That connects to that server. Any device that now connects with the access point're surfing through the VPN service. So if you want to watch ( Hulu) often on different computers, install an additional wireless access and configure this connection with a US VPN server. Every time you want to see ( Hulu, connect your computer to that access point instead of your default access point. If you want to return to your normal internet connection, you simply switch over to the default access point. In the Web interface of DD-WRT, you can set the router as VPN client, which you can choose between PPTP and OpenVPN.

Safe surfing through their own VPN server

Safe surfing the Internet you can use a VPN (Virtual Private Network). Take out some VPN services, but it is also possible to set up your own server. We explain how.

Please note that setting up and configuring a personal VPN server is less simple than one part  where we show you how to use a VPN service. We consider this second part of the course quide as an expert course, where it is useful if the user is a little more technical knowledge.

Set up a VPN server

Alternatively, instead of a VPN service itself to set up a VPN server on your computer. Or on your NAS, router, or a device such as the Raspberry Pi. There are some conditions in order to work properly such a setup. First, the device must when you install the server has a static IP address so that the clients can easily access the server.

Next you need in your router's port forwarding setup: You need all the network traffic that enters the network of the VPN protocol used to redirect to the device on which your VPN server state. Without port forwarding do you have outside your home network, after all, no access to a server in your network.

And you want to use a domain name easy to remember for your own VPN connection instead of (occasionally changing) IP address of your Internet connection? Then activate your router something dynamic DNS (DDNS) is called.

Only when these three conditions (static IP address, port forwarding and Dynamic DNS) is satisfied, the VPN connection will run smoothly. It pays to first look at the manual of your router's how you do it and to make sure your router might even be able to act independently as a VPN server. If so, then your router is best VPN device you choose, because then you do not need to install additional programs and you do not have a separate port forwarding required. There is also an open source firmware that you can install on many routers, called DD-WRT, which contains a built-in VPN server. Many NAS devices you can install a VPN server as an additional module. And on a Raspberry Pi (or another Linux computer) you can install a VPN server, such as OpenVPN.

Also on your NAS, you can install a VPN server.

A device inside your corporate network can pass as a VPN server for external devices work with port forwarding.

OpenVPN server in Windows

Windows 7 and 8 have a built-in VPN server, but using the protocol PPTP (Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol), which as I said is not as secure. Although this is the most widely supported protocol on all kinds of platforms, we prefer a more secure solution, though it is more difficult to install and configure: OpenVPN. Open this link in your browser and download from this page the Windows Installer OpenVPN. Please check if you have a 32- or 64-bit version of Windows and choose to download the same version of OpenVPN.

The installer starts a wizard that guides you through the installation steps. In the window Select components certainly OpenVPN RSA Certificate Management Scripts to. And choose in the window next to the location C: \ OpenVPN instead of the default location, which avoids a number of problems with the configuration. Once the installation is in progress, then Windows will ask at some time if you want to allow the installation of a virtual network driver. Confirm that question by clicking Install.

Install the OpenVPN server on Windows.

Certifications

Now we must still configure OpenVPN and create certificates. We do this with a series of commands that must be carefully introduced, but we take them step by step you through.

In Windows, go to Start / All Programs / Accessories / Command Prompt (Start, tap or open cmd.exe and press Enter). Perhaps unnecessarily: all the commands that you type at the command prompt, connect you with a press Enter. At the command prompt, type the command cd C: \ OpenVPN \ easy-rsa, and press Enter (as we now call them Enters no more explicit). Initialize the configuration afterwards with the command init-config. Open the file with Notepad vars.bat via the command notepad vars.bat. Enter this text your details behind the rules KEY_COUNTRY (country code, for example, NL), KEY_PROVINCE (province), KEY_CITY (city) KEY_ORG (company or organization, but you may arbitrarily what filling) and KEY_EMAIL (a valid e- address). Also change what behind HOME is C: \ OpenVPN \ easy-rsa. Save the file and close Notepad. In the Command Prompt window now, run one after the commands and vars clean-all out.

We then create a certificate and key (for the "certificate authority (CA), but can you remember). It starts with the command build-ca. You will be prompted to enter a number of issues, such as the code of your country, your province, your organization and so on. Most data you've already entered in the file vars.bat and are here also shown as default. With one press Enter take them. Fill Common Name your name.

Then, create a certificate and key for the server with the command build-key-server server. Accept the same default values as in the paragraph above, but fill in Common Name this server once again. Behind the questions for a challenge password and a company name do you answer anything, just give a press enter so that the answer is blank. When asked Sign the certificate? you answer yes by pressing the Y button (yes), as well as on demand thereafter.

Now create for each client a certificate and key with the command build-key client1 which client1 is the name of the client (for example, the name of the PC or on a mobile device). Accept again the same standard values and fill in Common Name this time the name of the client, for example, client1. Answer for the rest the same as when creating the certificate and key for the server. Repeat now for all the devices you want to connect to the VPN and make sure you use a unique name for the certificate for each device. Finally, run the command still build dh to set up the encryption for the VPN connection.

Creating certificates is done in the Windows command prompt.

Configuration of the server

Now copy the default configuration file of OpenVPN and customize it. You can with the commands copy .. \ sample config \ server.ovpn. (Note: with the point), then notepad server.ovpn. Looking at the lines consecutively starting with ca, cert, key, and dh. Create the following from there:

ca "C: \\ OpenVPN \\ config \\ ca.crt"

cert "C: \\ OpenVPN \\ config \\ server.crt"

key "C: \\ OpenVPN \\ config \\ server.key"

dh "C: \\ OpenVPN \\ config \\ dh1024.pem"

Save the file and close Notepad. Copy the necessary files to the correct location with the following commands in the Command Prompt:

copy keys \ ca.crt .. \ config

copy keys \ server.crt .. \ config

copy keys \ server.key .. \ config

copy keys \ dh1024.pem .. \ config

server.ovpn copy .. \ config

The OpenVPN server is now ready. You start the server with the program OpenVPN GUI, which is installed in the Start menu. Double-click the icon in the lower right corner to start the connection. Windows allows access to the VPN server by default only allow in your home or business and not on public networks, and give it a warning. Since you probably want to use VPN server only if your home is a PC, you accept the best that choice and click Allow Access. Your VPN server is now operational, but do not forget the three conditions to a VPN server must meet (a static IP address, port forwarding and Dynamic DNS), see the "Create a VPN server.

You configure your OpenVPN server in the file server.ovpn.

The Windows firewall recommends that you not run in public networks your VPN server.

VPN via your Wi-Fi access

In this course we explain how to set up a VPN connection on all your devices. But what if you are on holiday with five mobile devices and not all want to reconfigure? Or what if you want to bypass regular home country restrictions on all kinds of devices, and you do not want to enter throughout the VPN configuration? Very simple: let you connect devices with a device that itself an Internet setup through a VPN. Advanced wireless access points support this feature, which is often something like 'VPN client' hot. In the Wi-Fi access you give the configuration of the VPN server, and the access point are Internet via the VPN server setup. All devices that wirelessly connect to the access point, surf automatically via the VPN, without any further configuration. Does your AP does not, then read in the next issue of Computer! Totaal our workshop in which we explain how your Raspberry makes such a VPN router.

Configuring the client

Now we need to configure the devices that we want to give access to the VPN server. If it is a Windows computer, you can install the same OpenVPN software because the program also works as a client. So install on your client PC OpenVPN same way as on the server. Our explanation of certificates and keys you can skip this, because that is not needed on the client. The certificate and the client key we have already created on the server.

Copy the default configuration file in C: \ OpenVPN \ sample config \ client.ovpn to the folder C: \ OpenVPN \ config and open it with Notepad. Replace the rules consecutively starting with ca, cert and key by:

ca "C: \\ OpenVPN \\ config \\ ca.crt"

cert "C: \\ OpenVPN \\ config \\ client1.crt"

key "C: \\ OpenVPN \\ config \\ client1.key"

Use the correct name (here "client1") for the certificate and key. Look for the line that begins with remote and make there the following: remote server 1194, where you instead of the term "server" fill in the IP address or the (dynamic) domain name of your VPN server. Save the file and close Notepad. Ca.crt copy the files, and client1.crt client1.key from the server to the client (do it safely, for example in a (encrypted) USB stick) and place them in the folder C: \ OpenVPN \ config . Then you start the OpenVPN client using the OpenVPN GUI and you (if all goes well) connected to your VPN server.

The OpenVPN GUI you can start both an OpenVPN server as a client.

Mobile apps

OpenVPN runs not only on Windows, but also Linux and OS X. This last is to install OpenVPN for example using MacPorts, but there is also a graphics program that supports OpenVPN: Tunnelblick. Configuration is much the same. For a variety of mobile platforms, there OpenVPN apps. The official app of OpenVPN for iOS OpenVPN Connect, which lets you connect simply and easy to use with an OpenVPN server on your iPhone or iPad. The same app is also on Android. In the next section we show how to use them. Alternative Android firmware CyanogenMod has incidentally already built OpenVPN support. That could be interesting if your machine is older and does not support latest Android version, because the OpenVPN app requires Android 4.0 or higher.

Mobile configuration

You can change the configuration file for the client that you have made in Windows reuse under Android. Just make sure you change the lines starting with ca, cert and key, so they no longer refer to a path on your Windows computer. The rules are then:

ca ca.crt

cert client1.crt

key client1.key

Where 'client1' again should be replaced with the name of the device. Copy the configuration file ca.crt along with the files, and client1.crt client1.key to the storage of the smartphone, all in the same folder. Then in the OpenVPN Connect app, press the Menu key and select Import / Import Profile from SD card. .ovpn Choose the file and click Select. If all goes well, you get the message Profile successfully imported and click Connect to establish the VPN connection. Then surf through your secure connection. You disconnect the VPN connection by clicking Disconnect.

To configure OpenVPN Connect app on iOS, you need to connect your iPad or iPhone to your PC. OpenVPN Connect App is the app in iTunes. Drag the configuration file ca.crt along with the files, and client1.crt client1.key to the app in iTunes. In the app you get then to see that a new profile is available, click it to import it.

External server

To connect to your OpenVPN server, you can easily create such a .ovpn above configuration file for your smartphone, but if you connect to an OpenVPN server with a VPN service, you normally get that service a .ovpn file . If not, you can based on the settings that you might make yourself create a configuration file VPN service public. Start with the sample configuration file client.vpn which reside within the sample-config OpenVPN for Windows and adjust the line remote on. Copy the configuration file and the files needed for the key and certificate and then import it.

With OpenVPN Connect app for Android and iOS connect with OpenVPN servers.

The OpenVPN profile is imported into the app.

OpenVPN Connect is connected to the VPN server.

other port

If you have a VPN server setup and therefore the default port 1194 and UDP protocol standard, you sometimes can run into problems. Some networks are blocking all sorts of protocols other than web traffic (port 80). But you can respond to smart: do you simply listen OpenVPN server on TCP port 443. This is the same as for sites that use HTTPS, which is blocked by any network. Moreover, the network traffic of OpenVPN indistinguishable from HTTPS because both the protocols are encrypted with SSL.

Open the file C: \ OpenVPN \ config \ server.ovpn in Notepad and change the lines that begin with postage and proton respectively in port 443 and proto tcp. obviously change the firewall rule in Windows and the port forwarding rule in your router so that the new port is functional. Your clients must also use the new port. In the configuration file of OpenVPN under Windows is that the control remote server 443 tcp.
