Setting up site-to-site on D-Link DIR-130/330

Note: If you are unsure whether site-to-site is the best solution for you, please take a look at our Remote Access article first. What is more, if your device/service supports SHA256 and DH group 14, it is recommended to use these settings instead.


Step 1: Open your web browser and type in the IP address of your D-Link router management console ( by default). Enter the username (admin by default) and password (blank by default), and then click OK.

Step 2: Click on SETUP and select VPN SETTINGS. Choose IPSec from the ADD VPN PROFILE dropdown menu and click Add.


Step 3: Configure the Site-to-site VPN connection as follows:

  • Check the Enable box
  • Name: NordLayer
  • Local Net /Mask: your local network subnet and mask
  • Remote IP: set Site to Site and enter the public IP address of your NordLayer dedicated server
  • Remote Local LAN Net /Mask:
  • Authentication: Select Pre-shared Key and enter the key you would like to use
  • Encapsulation Mode: Tunnel

Phase 1 leave settings as they are apart from:

  • DH Group: 14
  • Cipher: AES-256
  • Hash: SHA2-256

Phase 2 leave settings as they are apart from:

  • PFS DH Group: 14
  • Cipher: AES-256
  • Hash: SHA2-256



Step 4: Click Save Settings.


Ending note:

In order to finalize the site-to-site setup on our end, we will need these values:

  • Pre-shared key - you can generate it or we can provide it
  • Encryption  details (AES, SHA and DH group) - AES256, SHA256 and DH group 14 are recommended (also must support IKEv2)
  • Remote gateway/router public IP (must be reachable while connected to the dedicated server)
  • Remote subnet and mask (the subnet is used in your local network)

Lastly, it is important to know what device or cloud network is being used (Ubiquiti, Fortigate, AWS, Google Cloud, etc.)

You can provide all of these values to us securely via
