VPN client on RAX80 RAX120 RAX40

These are supposed to be state of the art devices.  Then why is there no Client VPN available?  I have to use 3rd party software like DDWRT to get client based log in for VPN? Its almost 2020 Netgear. Entire households want to go through a VPN sometimes. 

 

These devices don't even have secure https logins....cmon. Give me a break

Hello CyberTri, 

 

The AX routers currently support OpenVPN: https://kb.netgear.com/29783/How-do-I-use-VPN-service-on-my-Nighthawk-router-with-my-Android-device

 

However, if you would like to see additional features implemented, I would recommend posting your idea on our Idea Exchange Board for new ideas to possibly be added in the future.

Sorry. This is a rediculous reply. OpenVPN had nothing to do with this issue.

I have to suggest Netgear encrypts access to the UI via https? That's not standard in EVERY existing device on Earth?

And client side VPN on a $400 router isn't an option?

Netgear knows these things. No one needs to tell them.

I think they want third party Open VPN profile support to use the router as a VPN client for the likes of ExpressVPN, Nord VPN and others. This is something Nighthawk routers don’t support.
