In today's world, where security and privacy are more important than ever, virtual private networks (VPNs) have become an indispensable tool for protecting personal data and ensuring a secure Internet connection. The Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP) and Internet Key Exchange version 2 (IKEv2) protocols are considered among the most secure and reliable ways to establish VPN connections. They provide data encryption and protect your privacy when information is transmitted over the Internet. In this article, we will look at how to set up an L2TP/IKEv2 connection on various operating systems.
Instructions for setting up a VPN connection via L2TP/IKEv2 protocols
For the VPN service, a list of VPN servers for setting up a connection via L2TP/IKEv2, as well as additional instructions, is available in the Personal Account in the Instructions for the service. Before starting the setup, you should make sure that you have access to this information in the manual. To connect via IPsec - use the list of IP addresses and domain names of L2TP servers to connect. To set up an L2TP/IPsec connection, specify the IPsec secret key - "321inter".
