Setup Android L2TP/ipsec VPN Connection with TorGuard

This guide will show you how to setup an android VPN connection using L2TP. All TorGuard customers have full access to L2TP servers. The L2TP Server IP's and shared key can be viewed in your activation email, or by clicking the "My Emails" tab in the client area.

To setup a L2TP VPN connection on Android:

  1. Go to Android Settings. Depending on your device's configuration, go to Menu > Settings:
  2. Tap Wireless and Networks:
  3. Tap VPN Settings:
  4. Tap Add VPN:
  5. Tap Add L2TP/IPSec PSK VPN:
  6. Tap and type to set each of the following:

    VPN name: Name the Server Your Setting Up. For example: TorGuard Netherlands1.
    VPN server: User the IP address provided in your activation email.
    IPSec pre-shared key: torguard
       
  7. Tap the menu button and select Save, or simply press your BACK button.
    Your device might now ask you for a password depending on your settings. This is NOT related to TorGuard. You may have set it for your device when configuring other passwords; or, your device might ask for a new password:

  8. You should now see the newly created connection. Tap to connect:
  9. Type the username and password that we provided for this L2TP account (NOT the ones you use to log into the client area), and tap Connect:

    After a brief connection process, you'll see: Connected. All your network traffic is encrypted and routed through your selected server location, and you can now access any websites that are otherwise blocked.

 

To disconnect from TorGuard:

  1. Drag down the status bar.
  2. Tap the VPN connected notification:
  3. You're back in the VPN settings page. Tap the connection name to disconnect:

    You're disconnected from the VPN.
