Setting up a VPN connection to the FRITZ!Box in BlackBerry OS

Through VPN (Virtual Private Network), you can use the Internet connection of your smartphone with BlackBerry OS to establish secure network connections to your FRITZ!Box and to the network devices and services in the FRITZ!Box home network.

In addition, whenever a VPN connection is active, all Internet queries are routed over the FRITZ!Box. This means that you will have tap-proof und tamperproof access to all web services, such as e-mail and online banking, with your smartphone, even when using public wireless hotspots.

Example values used in this guide

In this example we show you how to configure a VPN connection to the FRITZ!Box using BlackBerry OS 10.3.2.2474. When setting up the VPN connection, replace the values used in this example with actual ones.

  • MyFRITZ! domain name of the FRITZ!Box:
    pi80ewgfi72d2os42.myfritz.net
  • User name of the FRITZ!Box user:
    John Smith
  • Password of the FRITZ!Box user:
    secret
  • Shared secret of the FRITZ!Box user:
    Zj7hPCouK65IrPU4

Requirements / Restrictions

  • BlackBerry OS 10.3.2 or later is installed on the smartphone.
  • The FRITZ!Box must establish its own connection to the Internet using a modem (for example a DSL or cable modem).
  • The FRITZ!Box must obtain a public IPv4 address from the Internet service provider.

    Important:The FRITZ!Box is not accessible from the Internet over IPv4 when used on a DS-Lite ("Dual-Stack Lite") connection. When DS-Lite is active, the status "IPv4 over DS Lite" is displayed under "Connections" on the "Overview" page of the FRITZ!Box user interface.

Note:The configuration procedure and notes on functions given in this guide refer to the latest FRITZ!OS for your FRITZ!Box.

1 Preparations

Setting up MyFRITZ!

With MyFRITZ! you can even access your FRITZ!Box over the Internet at all times if its public IP address changes on a regular basis, for example after being automatically disconnected by your Internet service provider:

Note:If you already use a different dynamic DNS service, you can also use this service instead of MyFRITZ!.

Adjusting the FRITZ!Box's IP network

The following step is only necessary if the smartphone that is to establish the VPN connection has an IP address from the IP network of the FRITZ!Box:

Important:If the smartphone has an IP address from the IP network of the FRITZ!Box, no VPN communication can occur! This is the case, for example, when the smartphone is also located in a FRITZ!Box network and the IP settings of the FRITZ!Boxes were not changed (IP address 192.168.178.1 in the factory settings).

  1. Click "Home Network" in the FRITZ!Box user interface.
  2. Click "Home Network Overview" in the "Home Network" menu.
  3. Click on the "Network Settings" tab.
  4. Click the "IPv4 Addresses" button.
  5. Enter the desired IP address and subnet mask.
  6. Click "OK" to save the settings.

  2. Click "FRITZ!Box Users" in the "System" menu.
  3. Click the (Edit) button for the user who intends to connect to the FRITZ!Box via VPN,

      • Click the "Add User" button and enter a name and password of your choice for the user in the corresponding fields.
  4. Enable the option "VPN".
  5. Click "OK" to save the settings.

Now the FRITZ!Box sets up the VPN rights for this FRITZ!Box user.
A window displaying the VPN settings for the FRITZ!Box user will then open automatically.
