ExpressVPN on RAX80 (AX8)

Has anyone had any success setting up ExpressVPN on the RAX80 (AX8) router?
I see that it supports OpenVPN but I’m confused on how to get it working.
Thanks in advance.

Re: ExpressVPN on RAX80 (AX8)

a couple things.

1. expressvpn is 3rd party firmware. You won't find help for it on the offical netgear forums

2. I don't see any supported AX routers for expressvpn currently

3. expressvpn has a list of supported models. and RAX devices aren't on there.

Yes I understand all of those points, hence my question about asking for assistance. ExpressVPN supports OpenVPN and so does the AX8.
This being the case I imagine someone has figured out how to configure the AX8 using ExpressVPN configuration so that all devices connected can route through the VPN.

So ask on the openwrt or expressvpn forum as those would be the forum for 3rd party support. NOT the official netgear forum.

Did you ever find a solution to this issue?
I was wondering the same thing.
