Introduction

Our VPN for routers immediately protects your internet privacy and security while giving you full internet freedom and instant access to content streaming.

Connect every device in your entire home or office with a Plug & Play SaferVPN Router.

To set up SaferVPN on Mikrotik router using OpenVPN settings, follow our step by step guide detailed below:

Note: Do not setup your Mikrotik RouterOS remotely. You have to be connected via the LAN interface, otherwise, you will cut the connection (access to the router) and will no longer be able to access it remotely.

OpenVPN setup on Mikrotik Router

  1. To setup the DNS servers manually, go to Google DNS: IP -> DNS -> Settings -> Servers. Enter 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4

  2. Write down the default gateway IP address of your Internet provider (ISP) and remove the default route i.e., (Dst. Address = 0.0.0.0/0 routed via your ISP GW) from the routing table.

  5. Add a new static route to your routing table. Dst. address is an IP address of the VPN server you want to connect to. Gateway is the default gateway IP address of your Internet provider (ISP) that you wrote down in STEP 1.
