Disable Access

Your VPN bundle will be active for a specific amount of time and can only be used once. You may select one of the following options:

  • 2 Hours
  • 4 Hours
  • 6 Hours
  • 8 Hours

If you wish to disable the bundle before the period has expired, you can do so by clicking the deactivate button.

Disable Access

Once your VPN bundle has been deactivated, it is no longer valid and can not be reused for connecting to your Self-Managed Server’s Remote Management Interface. To connect to the interface again (after your time has expired /the session has been deactivated), you will have to activate a new session via the xneelo Control Panel and download the new VPN bundle.
