Pre-requisites for having a KeepYourHomeIP VPN server at home?Updated 8 months ago

To set up the KeepYourHomeIP (KYHIP) VPN server at home, you should ensure the following prerequisites are met:

  1. Public IP Address on Home Router

    Confirm that your home router has a public IP address provided by your Internet Service Provider (ISP). This is crucial for external access to your home network through the VPN. Refer to your ISP or router documentation for information on obtaining a public IP address.

  2. Adequate Home Internet Upload Speed

    Ensure that your home Internet connection provides a sufficient upload speed, ideally at least 30Mbps. The upload speed is particularly important as it directly impacts the download speed of your VPN. A faster upload speed contributes to a more responsive and efficient VPN connection.

These prerequisites lay the foundation for a stable and effective KYHIP VPN server setup at home. Checking and meeting these requirements will help ensure a smooth installation and optimal performance of the VPN server.
