So I have a DD-WRT router running in Openvpn client mode via my Airvpn account. I have setup forwarded ports in my airvpn account which work on my devices running their own airvpn client. However, I can't get any open ports to forward through the router to my Windows machine running apps that need the open ports. I've seen the notice on the help page for port forwarding: " you can't reach your listening service(s) through the VPN server exit-IP address from the very same machine that's running it/them and is connected to a VPN server, or from any other machine connected to that same VPN server." My interpretation of this statement is that my DD-WRT router running in vpn client mode, can't forward ports nor can my windows machine connected to my router access those ports. I'm struggling to really understand this restriction and why it is so. I have turned off all router and windows firewalls. The only way I can use forwarded ports is to run a windows client on my windows machine, which defeats having a dedicated vpn router. I have experimented over a month with commands for iptables using the router UI and other posts in the community to no avail. I hate to give up, but I'm out of solutions. Any simple answers and replies would be appreciated. I'm tech savy but not a guru.
Hi I am new to using a VPN, and am testing out airvpn. I have chose airvpn because of the port forwarding features, I would like to use it for p2p and hopefully plex server. I own a AC68U router and I understand that there is a few firmwares available to use the airvpn service. Asus's own fireware, DD-WRT, Tomato or merlin. My question is which firmware do you suggest I use given which programs I would like to use and ss this is all new to me which is most user friendly. What are the pros and cons of each. Thanks for any input
