  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
To enable a secured VPN connection you have to set up a port release on the VPN client side (connection to the internet) and port forwarding on the VPN server side (ports used in the server).

Devices that can be connected to SINEMA RC by autoconfiguration (SCALANCE S615 and SCALANCE SC-600, for example) and the SINEMA Remote Connect Server are to establish a secured connection via OpenVPN.
To enable a secured connection you have to make appropriate settings on the VPN client side and on the VPN server side. These are the settings:

  • Port forwarding on the VPN server side (ports used in the server)

  • Port release in the firewall on the VPN client side (connection to the internet)
