when you aren’t home.

Figure 8. VPN provides a secure tunnel between your home network and a remote computer
This type of VPN access is called a client-to-gateway tunnel. The computer is the client, and
the router is the gateway. To use the VPN feature, you must log in to the router and enable
VPN, and you must install and run VPN client software on the computer.
Note: The router currently does not support iOS or Android VPN client
software.
VPN uses DDNS or a static IP address to connect with your router.
To use a DDNS service, register for an account with a host name (sometimes called a
domain name). You use the host name to access your network. The router supports these
accounts: NETGEAR, No-IP, and Dyn. See Dynamic DNS on page 78.
If your Internet service provider (ISP) assigned a static WAN IP address to your Internet
account (such as 50.196.x.x or 10.x.x.x) that never changes, the VPN can use that IP
address to connect to your home network.
