How to set up the Smart Remote Access feature

Smart remote access helps users create a virtual LAN (Local Area Network) in order to access remote devices on the internal network. It uses the Internet to create a secure connection between devices to allow server and system access, remote device access (point to point), file sharing, RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol), and more.

Feature requirements: In order to activate Smart remote access, a private gateway with a dedicated server is needed.

To enable this feature, open NordLayer Control Panel and navigate to Settings - Security configurations. Under Smart Remote Access click Add gateways.

Once the feature is enabled for your Virtual Private Gateway – a local network (LAN) will be created between all the devices connected to the same private gateway.
