• How to setup PureVPN on the pcWRT router (IKEv2)

    Download root CA certificate for PureVPN IKEv2 connections

    PureVPN server certificates are signed by Comodo, so you need to download the root CA certificate from Comodo first. Follow this link to download the certificate file. Click the link at the bottom of the page and save the file to your computer (the PEM content is also pasted in comments below for your convenience).

    Add a PureVPN IKEv2 connection

    1. Log on the pcWRT console, open the “strongSwan (IPsec)” page under Apps.
    2. Under the Client tab, check the network you want to enable PureVPN for, then click the Add button under “Auth Configs” to add a new authentication configuration for PureVPN.
    3. In the “Add IPsec Auth Config” dialog:
      • Enter a name for the Auth Config
      • In the Server Certificate field, select the Comodo CA certificate file to upload
      • Enter your PureVPN username and password in the MSCHAPv2 username & password fields.

      Click OK to dismiss the dialog.

    4. Click the “Add” button under Connections. Then, enter a name for the IKEv2 connection, enter the server host name to connect to, select the Auth Config created in the previous step. Click OK.

      The list of PureVPN IKEv2 servers are available here: https://support.purevpn.com/vpn-servers. Look under the PPTP, L2TP, SSTP, IKEv2 column.

    5. Click the Save button to save changes.

    Start a PureVPN IKEv2 connection

    1. Click on the blue “Play” button to start the PureVPN IKEv2 connection.
    2. If connection is successful, a green dot will appear on the left of the connection configuration line. In case of connection failure, click on the “log” icon to view IKEv2 logs.

One Response so far.
