Applies to…

  • DxOdyssey 19.0 and newer


In addition to connections between gateways in a gateway group, DxOdyssey also allows clients and groups of clients access to specific tunnels. This article explains how to create new clients and client groups.

For more information on creating tunnels and adding clients to tunnels, see this article.


To add a client to the gateway group:

  1. Select “Client and Group Manager” from the list at the top left corner of the window.
  2. On the right side of the window, select “Add New Client”


  1. Enter the username and password for the user.
  2. If the administrator wants a limit on the number of active sessions a client can have, these changes can be made on the next line.
  3. Enter a description for the client (optional).
  4. Select “Apply” to save the client and add more; otherwise select “Submit” to save the client and close the window.

To add clients to a client group:

    1. Select “Client and Group Manager” from the list at the top left corner of the window.
    2. Near the top-right corner of the window, select “Add New Group”.
      • NOTE: If no clients have been added, the user may add clients from this window by selecting “Add Client” next to the search bar. For additional information, please see this article on adding clients to a gateway group.

  1. At the top of the new window, enter a new name for the client group.
  2. Enter a description (optional).
  3. At the left side of the screen there will be a list of all clients that are saved in the gateway group. Individual clients can be added by selecting the add symbol in the “Add to Group” column. Alternatively, multiple clients can be selected using shift or ctrl and selecting the right-facing guillement at the center of the screen.
  4. After all the required clients have been added to the group, click “Submit” to save the client group and close the window.
