    I have successfully connected to my OMV5 server with OpenVPN over the internet (outside of my home network) with my Laptop running Windows 10.

    My home router has port forwarding to my OMV5 server with port 1194 on (used by OpenVPN). My OMV5 server configuration also has NFS enabled, and I have added to it the shared folder that I want to be able to access (which is the same one I access when I am connected to my home network).

    I had expected to see my NAS server pop up in the "Network and Sharing" center in Windows 10, just like it does when I am connected from my home network. Unfortunately however, it does not appear, and I cannot access my Network Shares from across the internet.

    I have tried solutions such as running:

    net use x: \\vpn.ip.address\share-name

    from the command prompt in the Windows 10 client laptop. However that just gives "System error 53 has occurred. The network path was not found."

    I am at a loss for solutions? Any idea what I am doing wrong?

    No matter what I try, my public IP address (e.g. from is not connecting to my OMV server. I have tried connection by both entering the public IP address into my browser, and by using a DuckDNS url.

    Note: This issue first happened after my router was reset. Beforehand, it was connecting when I used the public IP address.

    I have already done the following:

    -Added port forwarding in my router to go my OMV server for ports 443 and 80. (Had it that way before router was reset).

    -Added my OMV server LAN IP address as a Static IP address in my router.

    -Updated /etc/resolv.conf file in my OMV server to have my new router IP address (before reset it was now it is

    -Re-added all SSH and SSL certificates.-Added SSL to "General Settings > Secure Connections"-Tried connecting with "Enable SSL/TLS" and "Force SSL/TLS" disabled or any combination of those two options.

    -Added to "Network > Interfaces > DNS Servers" (Note: In this menu the IPv4 connection method is set to "DHCP" and the IPv6 connection method is set to "Disabled").

    -Successfully pinged and and received responses.

    -Successfully ran "apt-get update" and "apt-get upgrade" (selecting no configuration changes for most options)

    -Restarted my OMV server several times.

    I am at a loss. It should be connecting simply by typing http://publicipaddress. Is it a configuration issue with OMV or my router? What else am I missing?
