Issue Details

I want to use VPN for security of the communication. How can I build the VPN network with NI Linux Real-Time target?


OpenVPN is available for setting up a VPN with NI Linux target. But this is a third-party product and also not supported by NI.
For more detail, please refer to OpenVPN. OpenVPN Commercial VPN server Resources  
Or you can find VPN usage cases in NI Linux Real-Time Community.
