A VPN secures your computers Internet connection to all of the data youre sending and receiving is encrypted and secured to whatever is connected to the VPN. NFOS(Nuclear Fallout Server) that is a VPS or a VDS, pretty much a virtual server. A VPS is a place where you host things like game servers or even websites. You can use an NFO on a Xbox, but you set up a VPN to use an NFO VDS to connect to Xbox live. Most used for this is OpenVPN. I do not recommend this for a first timer. NFO is pretty difficult to hit off from what I've seen, but still, everything can be hit off. There are many VPN's out there and some of them specialize in DDoS protection. I'ver heard good things about people using VyprVPN on their xbox if you truly want to set one up. Personally, I just don't really see it being useful buying a VPN for playing Xbox, unless you are purposely making everyone mad or doing illegal things.

I see and I need a VPN and NFO cuz there alot of ddossers on destiny,bo2,and alot of GB games and I can't afford to lose to a ddosser. This is why I need help in setting this stuff up. Also my team talks smack and I mod time to time for fun and for clients and the skid on the other side decides to boot me offline. So yeah I need a really good vpn or bro or vpn/bro combo

Gotcha, if you are using an NFO it needs to be shared to your Xbox. So you are going to be plugging in your Xbox to your PC. You might wanna research it a little bit before you start throwing money at it. If you are setting up the NFO, I would recommend using OpenVPN. If you are going to us just a VPN, I recommend VyprVPN. Another one is ExpressVPN.

DO I really have to connect my xbox to my laptop for nfo to work? Can't I just have the nfo on my router and connect my xbox to the router? Reason being because I have my rgh and my xbox one and I don't want to be limtied to only one device that has to connect to my laptop.

Just learn how to forward your connection, OpenVPN was mentioned above; I would recommend you take the time to watch a few videos and read on how to PROPERLY set that up.

Your best bet for some protection would be buying from Vultr/OVH, adding the DDoS protection, and setting up OpenVPN or any other end to end VPN server/client.

Pros/Cons:

Vultr: Good support, reliable uptime, AVERAGE protection up to ~50gb/s or so. Easy straightforward deployment, charge by the hour, so their lowest $5 package is roughly one cent an hour. Can be canceled at any time.

OVH: Good support, slightly faster responses. Reliable uptime, protection upwards of 200gb/s-500+. Similar payment system, been a year since i last used their service, might have changed. Lowest package is a bit pricey, but worth it.

Cons:

To anyone not exactly familiar with CLI or linux, in general, it might be a struggle on both platforms. You will learn as you go.

Buy a switch, and a ~15-25ft ethernet cable(s) issue solved. You could do router, but that is a whole different process involving the same stuff.

I already have my xboxs wired to my modem/router combo from Comcast it's a arris modem that has a wifi router built inside it. I just need to know how to change the virtual network for it to connect from laptop to router so my other devices like my xboxs will recieve the vpn and NFO service.

Motto: Just leave them out...
Remember that OVH has many kinds of servers, a normal OVH VPS can get hit off extremely easy. An OVH game server is hard as shit to hit off but its not cheap at all.

NFO VDS/VPS are very good but make sure you buy the Chicago Premium server as it has the highest capacity meaning that it allows them to absorb larger DDoS attacks. For your server you want: Single core, Chicago location, & Debian 8 for your Initial OS., the OS can be changed in the control panel if you don't like it.

You also get emailed if an attack is sent. You're told how long the attack is being mitigated for (the longer the bigger the attack) and what kind of method the attack used.

You need a VPN client like Pritunl, or OpenVPN or SoftEther. Personally I like Pritunl.

As for your question regarding if you can set up your NFO on your router/modem to let all your devices use it, you can't. You have to bridge the connection from your PC to your Xbox, like this. Router to PC wireless to Xbox wired or Router to PC wired to Xbox wired. The second one is better since wifi can be flaky and can drop connection at any given time.

Also look up on how to block ports as people on xbox that know what they're doing can hit your open ports and hit you easily no matter how good your VPS/VDS Is. Also you might have issues with connecting to people and vice versa. I had issues connecting to friends on RL, R6 and Black Ops 2.

I have a NFO with my buddy on it and it has not been taken down yet.
