EA9300 OpenVPN

Just received EA9300 as replacement router for the WRT3200. Will EA9300 be getting OpenVPN server abilities anytime soon? It's a feature I use quite often in place of fowarding ports. In fact the Linksys Wifi-App should be using this to connect to the router when off site.

Hi, rampdog. So far, we have no plans for the router to support OpenVPN server. With regard to your WRT3200acm, please email us at LinksysCares@linksys.com to further discuss this concern.

I purchased this router partially based on the press release from May 2017 (direct from Linksys) stating that this would be a feature to be released in a future firmware update.  Was this not true?

Does this means Press release from May 2017 was misleading?

Hello Pamela,

 

Can you please address your statement regarding no plans for OpenVPN, contrary to the Linksys press release (per my prior message)?  Does Linksys not honor their statements in press releases?

 

Thank you.

Re: EA9300 OpenVPN

The Linksys website advertised this as a feature that was going to be availble on this router.  How is even legal to not deliver? I bought this for openVPN server.

Hi Everyone. In regards with the EA9300 OpenVpn, we still don't have any ETA yet on its firmware update that would enable the feature of this router. However, you can check our website from time to time for updates.
