L2TP (VPN) for any OS

The basic procedure for setting up a tunnel to proxy.sh L2TP server on your OS is to locate the network settings and to know how to set up a VPN connection. Once you have located this platform, please set up a L2TP connection using the L2TP IP shown in your welcome email and employ your proxy.sh credentials as username/password. Our pre-share security key is "security". Note that you can use either L2TP only or L2TP with IPSec. We support both.

Of course, you are recommended to do your own research to achieve that, but if you want us to write a tutorial for your OS and that one for the latter is not yet available, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us.

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.

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.
