How to install the FlashRouters Privacy App

Go to Administration > Commands and copy and paste the following line:
curl --silent --retry 3 https://api.flashroutersapp.com/api/v1.0/ddwrt/group/default/provider/CGG4/install | sh
Download OpenVPN configuration files
Click Configure new device and now create your server configuration, as described below :
- Protocol : OpenVPN
- Server Group : Choose the server group and the OpenVPN protocol (UDP or TCP) you want to use.
- Country : Since native protocol connections may only be used with exactly one server you now have to choose the country you want to surf from; the server to be used in this country will be chosen by CyberGhost automatically.
OpenVPN UDP allows higher speed than the TCP version but can result in broken downloads in some cases. This is the default setting.
OpenVPN TCP allows more stable connections than the UDP version but is a bit slower. Choose this version, if you have recurrent connection issues such as sudden disconnections.
Once the desired parameters are chosen, save them with « Save Configuration »
To view the OpenVPN credentials that are generated for you on the configuration dashboard.
Press View configuration
After setting up your connection preferences, please take note of the following :
