HOW-TO: Setup the OpenVPN server on a TP-Link AX1500 (Archer AX10)
In this video I’ll be looking at how to setup the OpenVPN server on a TP-Link AX1500 router – also known as TP-Link Archer AX10.
This instructions will also work, at least, with the TP-Link AX1800 (TP-Link Archer AX20) and TP-Link AX3000 (TP-Link Archer AX50).
I’ll show you how to configure the OpenVPN server, edit the OpenVPN configuration file, open the OpenVPN port on the ISP router (generic instructions) and how to configure the OpenVPN client on a Windows machine.
