A few months ago, we wrote about how you could use a VPN to access the Internet through your home network.
Today, we’re excited to announce that you can now also use a paid service like OpenVPN to access networks and services on your own home network, including Google’s DNS.
OpenVPN, a free and open source VPN, is a free, secure, and open software that lets you connect to the Internet anonymously and securely, allowing you to access many types of networks and websites without being spied on.
It also makes it easy to access and use the VPN when you have no Internet connection or an unsecure Wi-Fi network.
Open VPN works with the latest version of OpenDNS (version 3.5), and we’ve included instructions for setting up a free account.
To set up your own OpenVPN server, follow these steps: 1.
Create a new, empty OpenVPN configuration file on your computer.
Create two DNS records for your home computer and a new DNS record for your OpenVPN network.
On your computer, open OpenVPN and log in using your username and password.
On the OpenVPN page, set up DNS records and add a new record for the network you want to use.
Next, add the DNS records to your home router and configure it to use them as your VPN.
On Google, go to Settings > Privacy > VPN settings and add your new DNS records.
Next step: Configure OpenVPN on your router to use it as your network.
The first time you use OpenVPN in your home, you will need to log in with your Google credentials and create a new OpenVPN account.
You can use a username and passphrase to secure your account, or you can use the private key you generated in step 3.
Once you have your credentials, log out of OpenVPN.
Open the DNS settings page and enable OpenVPN for the new OpenDns record you created earlier.
Open a new browser tab, and navigate to the IP address for your VPN server (typically 192.168.0.1 or 172.16.0, depending on your network).
