OpenVPN is a free VPN (virtual private network) service that allows you to remotely access your Home network from anywhere with an open internet service. OpenVPN is a multiplatform service that works with both Android and iOS operating systems, allowing you to access devices and services in use through your router.
This article will take you through the steps needed to create and establish an OpenVPN connection with your TP-Link router.
Setting up OpenVPN on a TP-Link Router
