    • OpenVPN on omv Set up

      Hi,

      I am looking for guides to setup a successful vpn connection using the omv webui openvpn plugin, install seemed to have been successful but beyond that. I have no idea what to do next. I forwarded port 1194 to my router. The dh 2048 key has been generated according to the logs. OMV openvpn pluggin successfuly insalled and I activated it it. But I don't really know how to use it on other clients
    • OpenVPN on omv

      Hello,

      I followed some guides and got my vpn working but I'm unable to ping the omv server when connected. I can ping my router and access the webgui, I can access OMV webgui server but I can't ping it. Can someone please help me? Also, I am not able to access my shared drives on the vpn. I can access google just fine. If I go on google and search what's my IP, i get my home's public IP. I tested this using my android phone's network tethered to my laptop.
    • Haha, found the same problem too. My dad is the main person benefiting from all this because he chose not to have a phone plan. He basically only have a wifi tablet but is still able to text, make voip phone calls because in the city we live in, there are lots of free wifi locations. We both take the bus and there's free wifi on the bus but UDP ports are closed. Basically, vpn works everywhere except the bus wifi. I'm trying to figure out a way to make both UDP and TCP work on the same profile so we can access our home network on the bus.
    • @tekkb @siulman So I was able to get both TCP and UDP using this Script found here: github.com/zabullet/openvpn-install-advanced running with openvpn but it's pretty slow on both connections. I have 16.8mbps download and 10mpbs upload at home. With open vpn on udp i get 5mpbs max for upload and 0.78mpbs for upload on avg. It's at my gf's house, her normal speed without the vpn is 18mpbs download and 5 mbps upload.

      Is there a way to optimize openvpn? I can post my config files if need be.
