Will ever the Zyxel Armor Z2 NBG6817 support the openVPN?
Can someone graphically (with screenshots) explain how to setup on this router the VPN IPSEC?

    Many thanks for you choosing Zyxel product.
    Armor Z2 does not support OpenVPN, it only support VPN Pass-Through for PPTP/L2TP/IPSec. 
    Please refer the SW feature as below:

    Welcome to Zyxel Home Forum. 
    Due to Armor Z2 does not support OpenVPN, so Armor Z2 can't setup as IPSec VPN Client/Server. 
    We will internal evaluate this idea. 

    But since Armor Z2 have VPN passthrouth feature, 
    so you can apply it as following senario: 
    VPN server----Internet----(wan)Armor Z2(lan)----VPN client 

    If you have other concern, let's feel free to discuss. :)

    Hi all!
    Sorry for getting back to this old thread but since Covid19 and the need of working from home I'm looking for a solution how I can get my whole home network and all devices to use VPN (NordVPN).

    As mentioned here the "pass-through" mode is not the solution.

    Is there already a possibility to setup a VPN service on a Zyxel Armor Z2 router?

    Dear Sir,

    We don't have plan to add VPN feature on Armor Z2.
    However, we are working on a new Home Router which supports openVPN, we plan to release it this year.
    Please follow our official website for latest information.

    Best Regards,
