For Keezel to Keezel, you will need 2 Keezels. You can leave one Keezel at home and take another Keezel with you. The one you take with you needs to be on the Premium service, while the home one can be a Basic Keezel.
Setting up the home Keezel
While connected to the Keezel you chose as your home Keezel, click on the hamburger menu (the 3 horizontal lines in the top-right corner of the screen, next to the Keezel’s battery indicator), go to advanced settings and then click on Keezel to Keezel (beta)
Click on Set Keezel as VPN location:(you can use the default values, there’s no need to change anything)
Copy-paste and save the code generated when you push the Set this Keezel button, as you will need it when connecting to your home Keezel with the travelling one.
Also, make sure to copy-paste and save the Port, Protocol and IP address displayed, as you will need this info for the next step, which requires you to make some changes to your home router, otherwise Keezel to Keezel might not work.
Port forwarding on your home router
Your Keezel at home can only be reached if you have port forwarding setup on your home router (the device you got from your internet provider). Alternatively, you can use UPnP, which is not recommended because of the related security risks.
Each router has a different way to setup port forwarding. Connect your laptop to your home router directly and then connect to your home router (often this requires you to type in 192.168.1.1 in your browser, check your home router for this information). When you are connected and have the router menu in front of you, you will have to find a section on port forwarding.
You will need 3 pieces of information for port forwarding.
- The port we want to use (for example 443)
- The protocol we use (either UDP or TCP)
- The home Keezel IP address (the one we asked you to copy-paste and save in the step above)
This video explains how it is done on a linksys router (starting halfway through the video):
Connecting to the home Keezel
If your home Keezel is setup correctly and you have applied the port forwarding settings to your regular home router, you will be able to connect to your home Keezel when it is in Keezel to Keezel mode.
While connected to the Keezel you chose as your travelling Keezel, click on the hamburger menu (the 3 horizontal lines in the top-right corner of the screen, next to the Keezel’s battery indicator), go to advanced settings and then click on Keezel to Keezel (beta)
Click on Connect to another Keezel.
Paste or type in the code that was generated when you set up your home Keezel.
Click the "Connect to this Keezel" button.
Your Keezel will now connect to your home Keezel and after about 30 seconds you should see the main screen, with your home Keezel selected as the VPN location.
