How to & tips

Through VPN (Virtual Private Network), you can connect two FRITZ!Box networks at different locations with each other. In this case, a securely encrypted "data tunnel" is established over the Internet; this tunnel allows direct IP access to the devices in the other network and all IP-based services such as e-mail servers, data banks, and file servers can be used without restriction.

With the FRITZ!VPN software you can establish a secure VPN (Virtual Private Network) connection over the Internet from a Windows computer to your FRITZ!Box and then access all of the network devices and services in the FRITZ!Box home network.

When you set up a VPN connection between two FRITZ!Box networks, you can also restrict the VPN tunnel to individual LAN ports on the FRITZ!Boxes. These LAN ports can then only be used to access the remote FRITZ!Box network, but not devices in the local FRITZ!Box network. The LAN ports are also no longer able to use the local FRITZ!Box to access the Internet.

With the FRITZ!VPN software you can establish a secure VPN (Virtual Private Network) connection over the Internet from a Windows computer to your FRITZ!Box and then access all of the network devices and services in the FRITZ!Box home network. If there is a network router in the FRITZ!Box home network that connects the IP network of this FRITZ!Box with a second IP network, then additional settings are necessary so that you can also access the network devices in the second IP network over the VPN connection.

Through VPN (Virtual Private Network), you can establish securely encrypted connections over the Internet between two FRITZ!Box networks at different locations. A computer in the IP network of one of the FRITZ!Boxes can access all of the network devices in the IP network of the other FRITZ!Box over this VPN connection. If there is a network router in one of the two FRITZ!Box networks that connects the IP network of this FRITZ!Box with a second IP network, then additional settings are necessary in order to also access network devices in the second IP network over the VPN connection.

You can also configure the VPN connection between two FRITZ!Boxes so that one of the FRITZ!Boxes acts as a VPN client. In this case (with a client-LAN linkup), only devices in the network of the FRITZ!Box set up as a VPN client can access devices in the network of the FRITZ!Box set up as a VPN server. It is not possible for devices in the network of the VPN server to access devices in the VPN client's network.

With FRITZ!OS 6.50 or later you can configure up to twelve VPN (Virtual Private Network) connections to other networks or users. With older FRITZ!OS versions, you can configure up to eight VPN connections. How many VPN connections can be used at the same time depends on the speed and current utilization of the Internet connection.

Computers can only automatically detect other computers and display their names if they are part of the FRITZ!Box home network. If you wish to access shared libraries, files and printers in the remote network over a VPN connection, use the IP address of the relevant computer.
