This page links to all of the setups we provide. We support a number of different setups including our app, stock OpenVPN, L2TP+PSK and PPTP (in order of how much we prefer each type of connection). Our router setups are located at the bottom of the page.

We support OpenVPN on all of our gateways, with these ports, certificates and encryption methods:
Our OpenVPN setup uses your standard account username beginning with 'p'.
L2TP+PSK / PPTP / SOCKS5
We support L2TP+PSK, PPTP and SOCKS5 on all our gateways. These are supported on the standard L2TP/PPTP/SOCKS ports, and use the special 'x' username.
To get your 'x' username to use L2TP/PPTP/SOCKS5, access your Client Control Panel here: https://www.privateinternetaccess.com/helpdesk/kb/articles/pia-setups-2
On that page, scroll near the bottom and on the left you can see a section to generate this alternate 'x' username and password. Use these credentials when connecting via these protocols and you shouldn't have any trouble with them!
