Frequently Asked Questions

Creating and managing your AWS 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.
Yes, definitely. You can set up your VPN server in AWS using their free tier offerings. They currently offer a total of 750 hours per month free usage (enough to run 1 instance 24x7) on their EC2 micro instances in most regions. So, the Amazon AWS t2.micro (1 vCPU/ 1GB Memory) and t3.micro (2 vCPU/ 1GB Memory) qualifies for the free tier. You can set up your VPN server using one of these instances if that fits your requirements. But, you need to be aware of the 15 GB free bandwidth limit per month. If you use more than this limit, standard AWS transfer rates apply.
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 AWS, 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 AWS, 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 AWS 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 with a provider of your choice, which will make user management even easier.
