Can I use NordVPN or other VPN accounts with the the Telstra Smart Modem?

Answered

I have the Telstra Gen2 Smart Modem. I am looking to get myself NordVPN or another similar service. 

 

I just wanted to confirm if this Modem would allow me to connect using one of these services?

 

I am unfamiliar with how these service work but would I need to change settings on the modem?

 

thanks!

@KA19 If you just want to run NordVPN, or any other VPN, on the PC, then it will work without a problem.

 

I use NordVPN myself at times, albeit with a Telstra Frontier modem, but the same principal.

Mmmmm... hot pineapple donut and a coffee!

Awesome. 

Thank you, I would guess running it through a Raspberry Pi is the same principle?

@KA19 Yep.

 

From what I just quickly read, NordVPN works with RP.

 

From their FAQ:

The most difficult part of setting up VPN on Raspberry Pi is to find a compatible VPN service. NordVPN is one of the few providers who offer compatibility, guidelines and tech support for Raspberry Pi.
