    • OpenVPN and SSL/https

      Hello everyone,

      I have a maybe silly question I couldn't find an satisfying answer for:
      I installed OpenVPN on my OMV and it runs smoothly on Port 1994.

      I access my OMV internally via the web gui without https/ssl. I'm the only user in my network.

      Now, after setting up OpenVPN, I thought about activating https via the letsencrypt plugin to improve security.
      Wait a minute - isn't this something completely different? Does this have anything to do with the VPN security?
      Do I even need to think about https or is it only for internal network communication (again I'm the only user)?

      I know that I'm mixing something up here but I can't find out what and how.

      Sorry for my bad English and thanks for this awesome software!
