Frequently Asked Questions

Creating and managing your Linode VPN server is quite easy with UTunnel VPN. Once your VPN server is set up, you will be able to view all your server stats and manage all aspects of your server and its configuration via UTunnel’s easy-to-use web dashboard. Some configuration changes might need a manual server restart if you choose the BYOS deployment option to set up your Linode VPN. You can easily do it by running a single command on your Linode server via SSH.
It is essential to ensure that business data is always encrypted and protected while being transferred over the Internet. When you set up your UTunnel VPN Server in Linode, it makes sure your data is always protected with encryption. UTunnel VPN supports highly secure 256-bit encryption with OpenVPN and IKEv2 protocols.
Businesses often require secure access to private resources like ERP, CRM, HRMS systems, and other business applications. Such systems might already have password protection, but keeping such internal IT applications and servers accessible across the open internet is very risky. Once you set up your Virtual Private Network in Linode, you can whitelist the VPN IP address in these systems and restrict access to them only via the VPN. This adds an additional layer of security to your resources.
If you want to manage teams or user groups on your Linode VPN Server, you should sign up with a business account while creating your UTunnel account. The business account offers the ability to manage user groups and selectively grant access to VPN servers to specific groups. You can easily set up single sign-on integration with a provider of your choice, which will make user management even easier.
Yes, you can easily set up a site-to-site VPN tunnel between your Linode VLAN (Virtual Local Area Network) and any remote endpoint that supports the IPSEC IKEV2 protocol. UTunnel's web dashboard lets you easily configure the site-to-site tunnel properties. Also, you will need to add custom routes on your Linode VLAN servers to send traffic to the remote encryption domain (the range of IP addresses of the hosts which will be participating in the encrypted VPN), through the UTunnel server. But, that's not a thing for you to worry about; our support engineers are standing by to assist you with site-to-site tunnel setup.
