This application note describes how to route all internet traffic via the Private Internet Access (PIA) VPN service using LAN to LAN VPN tunnel configuration. This configuration applies to DrayOS routers (DV2760, DV2912, DV2860, DV2925, DV2952, and DV3220)
Supported VPN tunnel modes are PPTP and L2TP. PPTP provides encryption for extra security and is also faster than L2TP which does not encrypt the data.
