I am sure a few of us here are perhaps running OpenVPN either via RPi or just a VM somewhere. I have recently set it up on my Raspberry Pi, forwarded the port in the SH3 settings but I just can't get any connection.
I have tried a few port checking sites and it seems that the port isn't even open which seems to be the issue.
Anyone here use OpenVPN, perhaps even PiVPN which is what I am trying to do and got it working?
I understand I may need to put the SH3 in modem mode and get something else but I thought id ask the question first.
Mention of port forwarding implies that you're trying to set up an OpenVPN server on your Raspberry Pi. In that case, I can't see that WebSafe is relevant. That would block outbound connections to commercial VPN providers when running an OpenVPN client, but shouldn't have any effect on a VPN server.
In any case, I can confirm from personal experience that there's no technical impediment to running OpenVPN servers or clients on a VM connection (both TCP and UDP work fine) except that there have been reports that the Hub 3 can be problematic with VPN. You may well need to switch it to modem mode and provide your own router.
