Gaming over VPN

From DD-WRT Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Setting up a private secure network between you and your friends for things like easy file transfer and lan gaming is something a lot of people want to do and now DD-WRT can help you with that.


[edit] Hamachi

Hamachi is plug and play VPN, this is probably the easiest method of creating a VPN to play games. This is only noted to let you know it exists, you do not require DD-WRT to use it. For more information visit:

[edit] PPTP

How to configure PPTP to play lan games

  1. Configure the PPTP Server on DD-WRT
  2. Ensure you enable Broadcast for VPN clients as most games use broadcast for their LAN game browsers
  3. Configure your PPTP Clients
  4. Change the Access order of the VPN connection to make it the highest as this can effect many games

Thats it, have fun gaming!

[edit] OpenVPN

Create a openvpn bridged network (router to router or client to router) tunnel.

[edit] Ethernet Over IP Tunneling

Creating an EoIP Tunnel is effectively similar to Hamachi (Joins 2 private/personal networks across the internet) without the need for installing resident software on your PC. Unfortunately this requires support from both ends, as each router must be configured to use EoIP. See EoIP Routing for more information.
