VPN - pPTP or IPSEC
« on: January 03, 2020, 10:52:36 AM »

hi D-Link Experts,

I've got DIR-859 router and want to connect it to IPSEC (or at least pptp) VPN. In this emulator link "http://support.dlink.ca/emulators/dir859/VPN.html" it mentions about IPSEC, but my one have no info about IPSEC. my router is A3 hardware. I tried to connect it to PPTP server, but no luck. it is timing out, and on the server side i am seeing "LCP config sending timeout". not sure why... but all my other PCs are successfully connecting to that PPTP server.
Do you think you have a firmware i can use to be able to connect to my IPSEC or PPTP servers from my D-Link DIR-859 router? or i should install ddwrt firmware to support VPN?

thanks in advance,
Art

Edit1: I've learned from DLink support, that DIR859 does not support connecting to VPN servers and i need to get business class router to be able to connect to VPN server. If this is the case, do you think i need to replace the firmware with DDWRT or OPENWRT firwmare to have the VPN working?
