What is VPN?

A virtual private network (VPN, is a secure network between two or more devices. It is generally used to protect data through a private tunnel. Your traffic through the VPN will always be encrypted with secure algorithms. These networks provide security against spies, and censorship of your current IPS or government.

Top 3 VPN uses

Configure MAC client

To connect to VPNPTP server from a MacOSX client computer, you need to follow these steps

  • Download and install an OpenVPN client for MacOSX
  • Login to the VPNPTP server’s client web server and download the appropriate client configuration file ("can1win_mac_ios-vpnptp_com.ovpn")
  • Run the OpenVPN client with the downloaded client config file

A popular OpenVPN client for MacOSX is Tunnelblick. It can be obtained for free from OpenVPN client

Follow these basic steps to use Tunnelblick with OpenVPN VPNPTP Server:

  • Download the Tunnelblick disk image file (a “.dmg” file) from https://tunnelblick.net
  • Open the downloaded disk image file (which mounts the disk image).
  • Double-click the Tunnelblick icon (it may be labelled “Tunnelblick.app”) and you will be guided through the installation of the program.
  • Once you have installed Tunnelblick, you can download and install the configuration file. After logging in to the Access Server’s Client Web Server, download the client.ovpn file and double-click it. This will launch Tunnelblick if necessary, and Tunnelblick will install and secure the configuration.
  • Run Tunnelblick by double-clicking its icon in the Applications folder. If left running when you logout or shut down your computer, Tunnelblick will be launched automatically when you next log in or start your computer.

Note: The first time Tunnelblick is run on a given Mac, it will ask the user for the an system administrator’s username and password. This is necessary because Tunnelblick must have root privileges to run, as it modifies network settings as part of connecting to the VPN. For more information on using Tunnelblick, see the Using Tunnelblick

Configure Linux client

To connect to VPNPTP Server from a Linux client computer, you need to follow these steps

  • Install an OpenVPN client for Linux
  • Login to the Access Server’s Client Web Server and download the desired client config file (“eu1AND-vpnptp_com.ovpn”)
  • Run the OpenVPN client with the downloaded client config file

Installing an OpenVPN client:

Usually, the easiest way to install an OpenVPN client is to use the package management system for your particular Linux distribution. Run one of the following commands (as root):

  • Fedora/CentOS/RedHat:
  • yum install openvpn
  • Ubuntu/Debian:
  • apt-get install openvpn

Running the OpenVPN client with the downloaded client config file: Usually, the easiest way to install an OpenVPN client is to use the --config argument to specify the location of the downloaded client config file:

openvpn --config usa1-vpnptp_com.ovpn

Configure ANDROID client

Follow the next steps:

  • Go to Play Store
  • Download OpenVPN connect
  • Import certificate

  • Save username
  • Connect to the VPN

Configure IOS client

To connect to VPNPTP on an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, you will need to install the OpenVPN Connect client and download our VPN configuration file (us1AND-vpnptp_com.ovpn). It is recommended to follow these instructions in order.

  • Install OpenVPN Connect

Download and install the OpenVPN Connect client (by OpenVPN Technologies) from the App Store.

  • Import the certificate and make it work.

Configure MIKROTIK client

  • The first thing we must do is upload the configuration files to the router:

  • Then we import the certificates:
/certificate import file-name=CA-CAN.crt
               certificates-imported: 1
               private-keys-imported: 0
                      files-imported: 1
                 decryption-failures: 0
            keys-with-no-certificate: 0
/certificate import file-name=can1-client.crt
                certificates-imported: 1
                private-keys-imported: 0
                       files-imported: 1
                  decryption-failures: 0
             keys-with-no-certificate: 0
/certificate import file-name=can1-client.key
                certificates-imported: 0
                private-keys-imported: 1
                       files-imported: 1
                  decryption-failures: 0
             keys-with-no-certificate: 0
  • Now we configure the openvpn client:
/interface ovpn-client add name=vpnptp.com-can1 connect-to=can1.vpnptp.com \
                port=443 certificate=can1-client.crt_0 user=XXXX password=XXXXX \
                profile=default-encryption auth=sha1 cipher=aes256
  • Now we configure the openvpn client:

We assume that our LAN is

/ip firewall nat
/add action=masquerade out-interface=vpnptp.com-can1 chain=srcnat
/ip firewall mangle
/add chain=prerouting action=mark-routing new-routing-mark=vpnptp passthrough=no \
src-address= comment=vpnptp_canada
/ip route
/add dst-address= gateway=vpnptp.com-can1 routing-mark=vpnptp

MTU size

MTU definition

The information on the internet and other networks is sent grouped in data packets. MTU (Maximum Transmission Unit) is the maximum amount of data that can be physically transmitted in a packet. Windows assigns a default value of MTU to each connection according to its type. However, it is necessary to check in practice if this value works properly in each connection.

What is the effect on an inappropriate MTU value?

If the MTU value set is too high, it can cause fragmentation and loss in the sent packets. Otherwise, if it is lower, the network capacity is not properly utilized. The MTU values assigned by Windows according to the network used are:

  • In local networks (Ethernet) = 1500 bytes
  • PPPoE networks (Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet) = 1492 bytes
  • PPPoE networks (Windows XP) = 1480 bytes
  • Dial-up connections = 576 bytes

Each transmission unit consists of headers or headers plus the data used. The data referred to as MSS (Maximum Segment Size), truly define the information to be sent, so the formula would be: MTU = MSS + TCP & IP headers.

Calculate MTU value:
ping [-f] [-l ] [host]
ping -f -l 1500 google.com

If result = Packet needs to be fragmented but DF set. You have to try until you fragment the package:

ping -f -l 1480 google.com
Packet needs to be fragmented but DF set
ping -f -l 1460 google.com
icmp_seq=0 time=1.883 ms
icmp_seq=1 time=3.353 ms

As seen in the last ping there is no fragmentation so it is the correct MTU.

ping [-M do] [-s ] [host]
ping -M do -s 1460 google.com
ping [-D] [-s ] [host]
ping -D -s 1460 google.com
