VPN Enabler 1.0.1
Category : Technology
I’ve updated VPN Enabler to make it more helpful. I’ve added a “Suggest IP Addresses” button. (Download VPN Enabler 1.0.1
If you’re running VPN Enabler on the single machine, on the local network behind the router, that has all the Internet services loaded on it (e.g., web, mail, and dns server, all on one machine, which is quite a reasonable assumption for the user base that is running all my “enabler” apps), then when you click on that “Suggest IP Addresses” button, it’ll try to provide you with reasonable values that you can use.
These values are provided to an incoming VPN client, which is joining your private local network, so it’ll firstly be assigned an IP address within the range you provided, and then it’s told where to go for DNS services. Basically, the VPN Server acts like a DHCP Server for the incoming VPN clients.
