8. Now, connect to your new server via SSH with Sudo access. After the successful login, execute the following commands:

sudo mkdir /utunnel && cd /utunnel

sudo wget

sudo tar -xf install_bundle_20.tar

9. In the next command, you need to replace YOUR_REGISTRATION_TOKEN with the registration token you copied from the Server Details page (Step #8).

sudo /utunnel/bin/utnservice register YOUR_REGISTRATION_TOKEN

10. Now it's time to start UTunnel Service on your server. Run the following command for the same.

sudo /utunnel/bin/utnservice start

11. Make sure that inbound connections to the following ports are allowed to accept VPN connections.

Ports used for OpenVPN connections

  • TCP 443
  • UDP 443
  • UDP 53 (if scramble VPN is enabled)

Ports used for IPSEC connections

  • UDP 4500
  • UDP 500

Ports used for managing UTunnel services like live sessions, firewall, and site-to-site tunneling.

  • TCP 38081

Now your server would be ready to accept VPN connections. Invite users to your server and start using your VPN.
