L2TP (VPN) for FreeBSD

We are still working on this tutorial to provide it in a completed and comprehensible version. Meanwhile, you can try out yourself to connect to proxy.sh L2TP servers on FreeBSD using OpenL2TP, an open source L2TP client/server. You can download it and read more details about it on the official OpenL2TP website. Do not hesitate to get in touch with us if you have any further question.

NB: If you encounter difficulties to connect with L2TP, please try to switch to OpenVPN. OpenVPN is more reliable, more secure and more flexible. OpenVPN also allows you to try various ports, including 'discreet' ones such as TCP 443. Below, you will find an aggregate of useful guides and articles that will help you troubleshoot your problems, should you have any.

Guide for setting up OpenVPN with default client on FreeBSD.
I cannot find the .ovpn and .crt files necessary for OpenVPN. Where are they?
No matter how hard I try, I cannot succesfully connect to OpenVPN.
I can't access any website through my browser while connected to VPN.
I am connected to the VPN but my IP is not yet hidden. Help!
I am having some kind of other problem. Where can I find some help?
How can I find the local log files of my VPN client?

If you still cannot connect successfully, please open a support ticket and include either a copy of your logs or a screenshot of your configuration and encountered errors. Logs can usually be found in software menus or settings, as well as their directories of installation (.log or .txt files). If you do not include a log or a screenshot, it will be hard for us to help you resolve the issues you have with connecting to our network.
