VPN refers to Virtual Private Network. VPN enables you to connect to the remote computers of a remote network via encrypted channel over the Internet. Since it uses encrypted channel, VPN connection ensures safety.

If you connect to the remote computers of a remote network you can use your PC as if it would be the part of the remote network. There are various ways to be connected to a remote network via VPN. In this example, you will find a guide about using the built-in VPN client of Windows.

The built-in VPN client of Windows uses PPTP (Point to Point Tunneling Protocol) protocol with MPPE (Microsoft Point to Point Encryption) encryption, by default.

To be able to connect to a remote computer with this built-in VPN client, the remote computer also needs to run a VPN server that supports PPTP protocol with MPPE encryption. It can also be an other PC running Windows.

In this example, you will learn how to create an SMPP connection in Ozeki NG SMS Gateway to connect to a service provider via VPN connection if the service provider ensures VPN connection also via PPTP protocol with MPPE encryption.

Configuration guide

It is assumed that you have already received the necessary data from your service provider:

  • username and password that is required for VPN connection
  • IP address, port number, username and password that is required for SMPP connection
  • Ozeki NG SMS Gateway has already been downloaded and installed on your PC

Step 1 - Create VPN connection
