Configuring the VPN Manager

VPN Manager is included to manage VPN connections. A virtual private network (VPN) extends a private network across a public network such as the Internet. It enables a computer or Wi-Fi-enabled device to send and receive data across shared or public networks as if the devices are directly connected to the private network, while benefiting from the functionality, security and management policies of the private network.

To configure the VPN Manager, use the following guidelines:

  1. In Classic Mode, from the desktop menu, click System Setup > VPN Manager.

    In Zero Mode, user can view the VPN Manager tab in System Settings panel.

  2. Click VPN Manager.

    The VPN Manager dialog box is displayed.
