With a virtual private network (VPN), you can create a secure SSL encrypted connection between a local PC and your cloud servers.

Note

For technical reasons, you can only establish one connection to your cloud servers via VPN. If you want to establish multiple VPN connections at the same time, you must configure a VPN connection for every local PC.

In the Network > VPN section, all the VPNs are listed in a table. The most important information on the individual VPNs is included in this table:

Name: the name assigned to the VPN. You can change it at any time.

Status: the current VPN status.

Typ: the type of VPN.

Data center: Data center to which a secure connection is established.

To access all the information about the relevant VPN, click the name of the private network. The list includes the following additional information:

IP: the IP address assigned to the VPN.

ID:  the VPN’s ID.

Date of creation: the date the VPN was created.

Note

To use the VPN, you have to install the OpenVPN software on the local PC and then configure it. In the Access section, you can download a zip file with the necessary configuration files.

The History section lists the most recent actions that were performed for the selected VPN.
