Hello Techtunes folks, how are you all? Hope everybody is well. From now on, we regularly come to you with new tunes. And is there any other way to stay away from Techtunes’ new topics and services? And in order to keep up with this ever new topic and trend of service, today I came up with a brand new topic with you. And through this tune you will be able to know all the new information.
If you have two VPNs installed on your computer, you may have some problems if you want to use two VPNs at the same time. And I don’t usually recommend using two VPNs, but you may encounter a situation where you may need two VPNs – for example: you want to use corporate VPNs and personal VPNs together.
Fortunately, you can easily use Double VPN by setting up a virtual machine on Windows operating system. And in the same way you can use double VPN on macOS and linux operating system. However, it is not easy to use two VPNs together on mobile devices like iPhones, iPads and Macs.
1. How to use two VPNs on the same device?
First of all, let me correct your misconception: Many of us think that having two or more VPNs installed in one device can cause problems in our device. For example, if you try to connect to a second VPN after connecting to the first VPN, your VPN connection will be turned off, and the Internet will not work.
On the other hand, if you have two VPNs installed on your device – connect to a corporate VPN when you’re working from home in the office and connect to your personal VPN when you want to watch Netflix – remember VPNs should not be turned on together. There will be no problem even if it is turned on.
The only exception is NordVPN, which can occasionally disconnect from the server if you have two VPNs installed on your device. However, we are not sure why this problem occurs. To solve this problem, you need to uninstall NordVPN and other VPNs installed on your computer and install both VPNs again. Next, remember to first open NordVPN and connect to the VPN server.
2. Why use two VPNs together?
In this tune we have discussed what VPN is, VPN connects you from your ISP’s server to VPN server and from there to the server of the site you want to visit. The connection between the VPN and the web site is encrypted, which is called “secure tunnel”. And this tunnel is made so that your ISP can’t track you, or the web site you want to visit may not know about your location.
Multiple VPN connections – also called “double-hop,” “multi-hop” or “double VPN” – are called double VPN when you connect to one VPN server and then connect to another VPN server. This effectively double-VPN creates a double-encrypted connection that is twice as secure – and so NordVPN is the first VPN that comes to mind.
That said, double-encrypted connections may seem secure in general, but there’s no reason to think so. After all, if one connection can be tracked, why not the other? The question may arise in your mind that double connection VPN service providers may collect your data, but why do you have such an idea about their service! When you yourself are already using these services.
There are many people who use corporate VPNs who want their employers to not be able to track their logs, so you should think twice before setting up a double VPN in this case. The main reason for this is the internet speed or you will get very low internet speed. Even if you use the best VPN, it will slow down your internet connection, moreover, two VPNs at the same time will reduce the performance of your device.
When you use a double VPN connection, keep in mind that whether it is your own or a VPN service provider’s, internet speeds will slow down.
3. Why can’t you stay connected in double VPN connection together?
Another problem with using a double VPN is that using two different VPNs at the same time does not work. Almost all the time the first VPN connection will work well but the second VPN connection will get stuck while connecting.
When you install VPN on a Windows computer, the VPN software installs an add-on called TAP adapter. And it’s an add-on that interacts with your network device – and controls how your computer connects to other devices and the Internet – and overrides the regular network over the VPN network; And working harder than VPN has made it easier for you to understand.
Since VPN takes control of your device’s TAP adapter, two VPNs cannot be on at the same time, as the TAP adapter is already controlling a VPN software. Fortunately, this problem is not serious and can only crash when connecting a second VPN, and the first VPN can also crash if you are unlucky. And it won’t do any permanent damage to your computer or device – but it’s really annoying.
4. How to set up two VPN connections
However, there are two ways to solve this problem in Windows operating system. The first is quite technical and to do this you need to set up a subnet which will have some ports of its own. You will then need to assign each VPN’s own subnet and port to the configuration file – for example, suppose your VPN gives you the option to configure a VPN protocol similar to OpenVPN and allows you to create your own double VPN connection.
Use virtual machines
Of course, there is a simple solution to using Double VPN, which helps you avoid the hassle of the above method, so you can use Double VPN on your computer using Virtual Machine (VM), and also use it to use a second operating system on your desktop or laptop. You can. Does this method seem more difficult to you than the above method? Below is a discussion on how to set up a virtual machine on your computer.
Run a VPN on your computer’s main operating system and run a second VPN on the virtual machine, allowing both VPNs to control the TAP adapter without any problems. And since the operating system of the virtual machine and the operating system of the main machine are completely different, you can use double VPN without any problem. And another good thing about this method is that it supports multi platforms, which means you can use it in Windows, macOS, and Linux at the same time.
However, running a VPN on your computer via a virtual machine will further slow down your internet connection. After all, using a double VPN in the initial state is of no use, and I don’t think there is any value in slow internet at the present time. Instead of using a double VPN at the same time, we suggest you use one of the best VPNs.
Although it is not necessary to use two VPNs at the same time, sometimes we may need. So if we know this, we can easily use it for our needs. However, using the two VPNs together can lead to various problems, the solution of which has been mentioned in detail in the discussion above.
And so there’s no point in using a double VPN in the beginning, and I don’t think slow internet has any value at the moment. Instead of using a double VPN at the same time, we suggest you use one of the best VPNs.
