Billion 7800N incoming VPN

Post by pungbricks » Tue Nov 01, 2016 7:59 am

I need to find a way of allowing non PPTP based incoming VPN access to my Billion 7800N router. Until recently I have been using an iphone client to connect to the router with PPTP. However Apple have now removed support for PPTP clients in latest version of IOS. I need to continue access via an iphone client, but the Billion 7800N doesn’t appear to offer an alternative compatible protocol e.g. L2TP/IPsec.
Can anyone offer a solution? For example is there a firmware upgrade that I could use on my router which would allow L2TP/IPsec? (My router is running version 1.06h). Or would it be best to buy another router which could offer L2TP/IPsec?

The 7800N will only support PPTP now, the product was discontinued a while back, and hence there will be no feature updates.

As Apple have stopped supporting PPTP, the only option you have now are the following

1. Use a third party app to make a VPN connection
2. Upgrade the 7800N, to a router that supports L2TP/IPsec etc

Our Bipac 8900 series, and Bipac 7800DX/VDOX support L2TP/IPsec

A cheaper option might be to put a raspberry pi behind your router and install OpenVPN on it.

Are there any good tutorials on how to do this that you know of?

ProEnhance was developed with the main reason that many people want the benefits of natural ingredients found in male enhancement pills but they don't want to take these pills. With Proenhance, you only need to put patches on the lower abdomen for around 72 hours, after that you can relax and watch the results obtained from Proenhance.
