This tutorial will show you how to manually configure a VPN on your Netduma R2 router using the OpenVPN protocol. If you are using Netduma R1, follow this tutorial.

Important: The OpenVPN manual configuration does not offer the same security and privacy benefits as the ExpressVPN app. If your router does not support AES-NI (e.g., Asus RT-AX88U and RT-AC86U), you may experience occasional speed issues while using the OpenVPN manual configuration.
