How to Enable Authenticated VPN Sessions

Enabling authenticated VPN sessions lets you confirm the identity of a user during each VPN connection attempt. You can follow the steps below to enable authenticated VPN sessions:

1. Visit the UTunnel VPN website and click the LOGIN button at the top right to sign in with your UTunnel login credentials.

2. You will land on the UTunnel dashboard that displays the details of your Utunnel VPN server.  Click on the Server tab at the top menu to view your servers.

3. Click on your preferred server to view more details about it and manage various server settings.

4. You will land on the server details page of that particular server. Select Settings from the left side menu.

5. In the General section, select the Enable authenticated sessions checkbox to activate it and click on the SAVE CHANGES button.

6. In order to reflect these changes onto the VPN server, a service restart needs to be performed on the server. Click on the Apply button on the prompt asking you to restart the service. 

For a cloud VPN server, the service restart will be performed automatically. But, in the case of an on-premise VPN server, you have to restart it manually.

7. Please wait while the VPN service gets restarted to reflect the changes made on the server.

8. Once the restart is complete when you connect to the VPN on your client devices, authenticated sessions will be enabled.
