VPN

What is VPN Matcher and how to use it?
VPN Matcher is a feature added in the latest firmware (v3.9.2) for DrayTek routers.  It allows LAN to LAN VPN tunnels to be established between two routers that are behind NAT and the routers are only allocated private IP addresses.  For example, if both routers are using a 4G USB modem to connect to the Internet but both 4G modems have built-in NAT or may be behind the ISP NAT.   In order to overcome these limitations, we make both VPN gateways behind the NAT register to the VPN Matcher server. The VPN Matcher server is capable of exchanging the connection information such as IP addresses and Port’s numbers for VPN gateways. After the VPN gateways obtain the connection information from the server, VPN tunnel can be started to be established between them.
