VPN on a RAX78 router

Well it's really a RAX78 but I wasn't offered that option and the rest of the discription fits.

Anyway this Netgear router actually has a VPN client option. First I've found on a Netgear router. But the only VPN service that appears in the drop down menu is PureVPN. I already have a VPN service (SurfShark) and am trying to figure out if there is a way to use it, SurfShark, on the RAX78. Netgear support didn't even know the RAX78 had a VPN client option so they were no help.

Anybody out there been able to change the VPN server on their like type router?

Hey Christian, thanks but they sent me to the community. It seems they didn’t know the Rax78 had VPN capability let alone if I could change the list VPN server.

Hi Kizziar,

 

The RAX78 currently only supports OpenVPN. You may find more info on page 138 of the user manual linked below.
