A Virtual Private Network (VPN) is a technology used to connect two or more devices in order to share data securely. A VPN can be used to connect a computer to another computer, a phone to another phone, or even a phone to a computer. In order for two devices to share data over a VPN, they must be connected to the same router.
If you want to block VPN traffic on your router, you will need to set up a firewall. Firewalls are used to block incoming and outgoing traffic based on certain criteria. For example, you can use a firewall to block all traffic from a particular IP address or range of IP addresses.
In this article, we will show you how to set up a firewall on your router in order to block VPN traffic.
What is a VPN?
A VPN, or Virtual Private Network, is a private network that encrypts and transmits data while it travels from one place to another. A VPN extends a private network across a public network, such as the Internet. It enables users to send and receive data across shared or public networks as if their computing devices were directly connected to the private network. Applications running across the VPN may therefore benefit from the functionality, security, and management of the private network.
VPN technology was developed to allow remote users and branch offices to access corporate applications and resources. To ensure security, data would often be transmitted through secure tunnels and Virtual Private Networks were developed by various software companies, such as Microsoft, AOL and Cisco. These early networks were not always secure, therefore data was often intercepted by others.
Nowadays, VPNs are used for a wide variety of purposes in a variety of settings. They are commonly used in business settings (by employees working from home or on the road) as well as more personal uses (such as bypassing country restrictions on video streaming sites).
What is a Router?
Routers are devices that connect two or more computer networks. They use special software and hardware to do this. Routers work at Layer 3 of the OSI model, the network layer. This is different from Layer 2 devices such as switches, which work at the data link layer (Layer 2). The main function of a router is to route, or forward, network traffic from one computer network to another.
How to Block a VPN on Your Router
You can block a VPN on your router by blocking the IP address or the range of IP addresses that the VPN uses. You can also block the port that the VPN uses. If you want to block the VPN on your router, you will need to access your router’s control panel.
Block VPN with Router’s Firmware
If you want to block a VPN with your router’s firmware, you will need toFlash your router with new firmware. This is a advanced option for users who are familiar with router administration. We recommend that you consult your router’s documentation or support site before proceeding.
Flashing your router means overwriting the existing firmware with new firmware. When done correctly, this can improve your router’s performance and security features. However, if done incorrectly, it can leave your router in an unusable state.
Before flashing your router, we recommend that you backup your existing firmware in case you need to revert back to it. Once you have backed up your firmware, you can proceed with flashing the new firmware.
If you are not comfortable with performing this task, we recommend that you reach out to a qualified IT professional or the support team for your router’s manufacturer.
Block VPN with Router’s Web Interface
If you want to block a VPN connection on your router, you will need to access the router’s web interface. Every router is different, but the process is usually pretty similar. You will need to find the “Blocking” or “Security” section of the web interface and add the IP address or range of IP addresses that you want to block.
If you don’t know the IP address of your VPN server, you can usually find it in the “Connection Settings” or “Status” page of your VPN client. Once you have added the VPN’s IP address to your router’s blacklist, any device that tries to connect to that VPN will be blocked.
If you are someone who is looking for ways to block VPN on your router, then this article is for you. There are a few methods that you can use in order to achieve this, and we will be discussing them in this article. So, without further ado, let’s get started.
