Connecting to a VPN on Android has never been this easy! Hello guys, and welcome back to another user guide. Today we talked about connecting to BelkaVPN LT2P/IPSEC on Android.
As a novice, all of this became quite confusing to me at first, which is why this user manual will be so simple that even a 5th grader can do it. So, let’s get right to it.
STEP 1. FIND CONFIGURATION. Unlike most guides, this one doesn’t need you to download any application on your phone. BelkaVPN is accessible even on your web browser, so we’ll start by going to “Google Chrome” and type in: www.belkavpn.com.
You’ll be greeted by this below, and before you go on to comment about how aesthetic the web design is, don’t forget what you came there for, which is to log in. See those three horizontal lines on the upper right portion of the screen? Click that and choose Login.
The screenshot on the right is the login page; input all the necessary information like your username and password, then press that big blue button that says “LOG IN.”
Now, you’ll be redirected to the Overview page. Click on “Dashboard Menu,” under that will be “Download.”
Once you reach that, scroll down until you get to “Config Generator” like so. Don’t forget to select your country, folks!
Done? See those four green rectangles below the country. Click on the one that says “L2TP/IPSEC.” It should be loading like the photo on the left, after which you’ll see the configuration.
Are we still alright there? Because you’ve successfully got your configuration, but we’re just halfway there. See those stuff there? Keep that in mind because we’re still going to use it for the next part.
STEP 2. SETTING UP. Once all is set and done, we’ll have to connect it manually. You’ll first have to go to your phone’s settings and search “VPN.” Android phones differ in their settings, but you know your phone more than I do, so I’ll entrust that to you. Once you’ve found your VPN Connections in the settings, here comes the part where it’s confusing.
So, you’ve opened VPN Connections, and, of course, you have none; why else would you be here! Do you see those three dots on the upper right corner of the screen? Click on that, and it’ll become this “Add VPN profile.”
Once you do that, this will immediately pop up on your screen. Remember the configuration details I told you to keep in mind? This is where you’ll be adding all of it.
I’ll try to help you on this one detail by detail because this is a rather strenuous process.
On the type tab, press and select “L2TP/IPSEC PSK,” and it’ll end up looking like this:
You should know about this part that you go back to the BelkaVPN site where you got the configuration.
Then it’s up to you. If you have a great memory, then memorize all of them, but if you’re like me and would prefer to do it the easy way, repeatedly copy the information and paste it to the dashboard! See as easy as 1-2-3
Now, there is so much stuff you have to fill up, so here’s some sort of cheat code to get by:
Type: L2TP/IPSec PSK
Server Address: Go back to the site and copy from “Domain name/IP Address.”
L2TP Secret: Skip
IPsec identifier: Skip
IPsec pre-shared key: Go back to site and copy from “PSK.”
Username: Go back to the site and copy from “Login.”
Password: Go back to the site and copy from “Password.”
If you filled it up correctly, it’d look like the photo below.
Hey, believe it or not, there’s only one thing left to do!
FINAL STEP: After that long process of moving from page to page, our final step is to press “Save,” and we’re good to go!
You’ll know you’ve successfully connected to BelkaVPN L2TP/IPsec on Android when you see this.
All in a day’s work, pal! Congratulations, and enjoy. See you in the next one!
