VPN client connectivity requirements

Our VPN client (VPN Client) is a lightweight application, running in the background on your computer, that enables you to make a secure VPN connection to your devices from within your browser.

The VPN Client uses an outgoing port to establish a secure connection to the x500 IoT gateway.
