    Thank you very much for the explanation. I've been using your version for a while, so I don't even remember what is in stock anymore ;) Great work. Everything is so easy with your mods.

    Mobile App with OpenVPN

    Hello, I have an ac86u running latest merlin firmware (non beta). I have set up an Openvpn server and a few clients with vpndirector rules as well. My question is regarding the mobile app and what is controllable from there. When I go to the Settings->VPN client, it is empty. I was hoping...

    Beginner VPN questions with FreshTomato

    Thanks a lot for your help. I've been trying from the LAN and outside, but I've had no luck. I'll keep trying and reset the router in case something is messed up. The cell phone is a good suggestion. I've been using my mobile hotspot to test.

    Beginner VPN questions with FreshTomato

    This is the syslog after I set it up again. Still the same issue. My setup is simple so I'm not sure why its giving me issues. I don't have an ISP modem, I have a dedicated modem not a combo device. My router is connected to it. The syslog is attached. A couple of naive questions from...

    Beginner VPN questions with FreshTomato

    Hello. Yes, I did regenerate the client config file. After every round of changes, but so far no luck. I disabled the tls auth, with no difference. I'm going to keep playing around, but did you notice anything in the syslog that helps? I noticed TLS Error: TLS key negotiation failed to occur...

    Beginner VPN questions with FreshTomato

    Thanks again. So I checked with ipchicken and the IP value is the same as the WAN IP value in the overview page. I changed my settings to try to use tls, they are below. What I see now in the client list is below. The syslog is there too but I don't understand it, so hopefully you will...

    VPN and usb drive

    Thanks so much ColinTaylor. It worked when I modified the firewall, so that's perfect. I am using Merlin on AC86U. How would you do a script? If there is a reference, I'd appreciate it. And is there a way to access the share with its share name, or do I have to use the IP address?

    VPN and usb drive

    Thank you! that worked for the usb drive. I tried using the same method to access another shared folder that is on another computer in the LAN. So I checked the network list to get the IP address of the computer, then entered \\192.168.1.100 in the run box. But it timed out. And I also...

    VPN and usb drive

    Hello, I am very new to VPNs so please forgive my ignorance. I am trying to access the USB drive attached to my AC86u when not at home. I set up the openvpn on the router, got the certificate, and loaded it into the openvpn gui on my laptop. Now when I am away, I can access the router setup...

    Question about transfer speeds

    Thanks for everyone's help. I'm not really sure what is happening, but I'll just give an update in case it helps someone else. I ended up resetting the router as a last resort, and set everything up again. I still have asymmetry but its much better in terms of speed. Its 60-70MBs in one...

    Question about transfer speeds

    I'll try that. What should I expect with iperf. I ran it once already and got 95 Mbits/s from the wireless laptop to the ethernet laptop.

    Question about transfer speeds

    Thanks. Both are i5s and this was with built in ethernet ports on the laptops. Could there be something slowing down the internal switch? Is there a setting that can be tweaked?
