    Openvpn server on asus merlin - connections but but seem to be enlessly reconnecting

    Hmmm total failure. The problem is certainly with the router Settings. Previously I had this setup on an Archer c59 Running as the open vpn server. It only worked if both remote client and local client NAS were connected to the vpn. It unfortunately had no ability to allow static vpn ip...

    Openvpn server on asus merlin - connections but but seem to be enlessly reconnecting

    Thankyou for your patience. The remote client is a QNAP NAS running QVPN openvpn client. It sits behind a Boblite router , which is a bastardised version of a TG 789 I believe. The Boblite router is not running any vpn software. Only the remote NAS C is running openvpn client Software...

    Openvpn server on asus merlin - connections but but seem to be enlessly reconnecting

    Hmmm I still cannot connect the other way around from the remote NAS C on vpn ip 10.8.0.2 back to the local NAS B on 192.168.0.200, nor detect any other local ip. It is kind of bizarre that I can go from the LAN to the remote NAS but not from the remote NAS to the LAN. It might be the the...

    Thankyou, much appreciated. I will look into the client specific options and check the client router setting to, a boblite iinet router. regards

    Openvpn server on asus merlin - connections but but seem to be enlessly reconnecting

    Success eludes me. I started again and have set up a new openvpn server on the router using the default values. I have only connected the remote client NAS C to the vpn. The connection is established to the server. I can now connect from my local NAS B on 192.168.0.200 to the remote NAS C on...

    Openvpn server on asus merlin - connections but but seem to be enlessly reconnecting

    It was the only way I could get the two NASes to see each other with the former router and earlier with one running a QVPN openvpn server. And having it set up and working, it is a massive pita to redo rtrr jobs nas to nas as opposed to rsync jobs which are pretty easy. regards

    Openvpn server on asus merlin - connections but but seem to be enlessly reconnecting

    Thanks, for your assistance. Earlier I had no trouble connecting, it just changed , probably after the firmware upgrade to merlin, to giving out .1 and . 2 ip addresses Instead of the .6 and .10 addresses. I have not consciously made any changes to the topology. I have tried to set up static...

    Openvpn server on asus merlin - connections but but seem to be enlessly reconnecting

    Thankyou. The router is RT-AC86U. The lan ip ranges is 192.168.0.x. And gateway 192.168.0.1 (this router replaced a TP link one and with many static lan ips it was easier to change the new asus router to match the old TP link LAN ranges). So the vpn ip range and subnet mask should be fine I...

    Openvpn server on asus merlin - connections but but seem to be enlessly reconnecting

    G'day, I have setup an open vpn server on my asus router (merlin firmware) using this guide: https://dev.to/eslynn/assigning-static-ip-for-openvpn-on-asus-routers-4c73 I replaced #!/bin/bash with #!/bin/sh. NB my knowledge of what I am doing is limited, I can spell PUTTY and use it but I do...

    Openvpn server on Asus Merlin router ip allocations

    G’day, Previously my open vpn server always allocated ip addresses to clients as 192.168.1.6, 10, 14, and 18. I thought maybe something to do with the explanation by JanJust here: https://forums.openvpn.net/viewtopic.php?t=8215 Yesterday after resetting the router it allocated .1 and .2...
