How to set up ActiVPN on a Huawei Router with L2TP


Configure your Huawei router with the VPN



Access your router’s control panel by entering 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.8.1. If that does not work, see how to find your router’s default gateway.
If this is your first time signing in, use the credentials supplied at the bottom of the router.
Note: This will become your router dashboard password going forward, so be sure to keep a record of it somewhere.
