Taipei, Taiwan September 18, 2021 – Synology announced today that its VPN server solution for Synology Routers, VPN Plus, has transitioned to a permanently free licensing program.
“We first launched this program to support businesses worldwide during the initial phase of the COVID-19 crisis. Fast forward 18 months, and the trend is now irreversible. Working from home has become the new normal,” said Rebecca Lin, Product Manager for VPN Plus at Synology Inc. “We think our users should continue to enjoy full free access to all the best VPN technologies that Synology has to offer. That is why we are announcing forever free licenses for all previously paid features of our premier VPN server solution, Synology VPN Plus.”
Under the new program, new and existing owners of Synology’s RT1900ac, RT2600ac, and MR2200ac wireless routers can activate perpetual Client VPN Access and Site-to-Site VPN licenses at no additional cost, forever.
Log in to Synology Router Manager (SRM) as administrator, go to VPN Plus Server / License / Client VPN Access, and click Add License. A wizard will guide you through the activation procedure. Once completed, the license keys will be activated on your Synology product within 24 hours. An active Internet connection is required throughout the process. Each license key can be activated on only one Synology product supporting VPN Plus.
Note: Each Synology Router provides one free client access license. Each additional client access license enables one additional concurrent user account logged into VPN Plus. The maximum number of Client VPN Access licenses a single device supports depends on the model:
