    Use OpenVPN on a GliNET device to VPN into Merlin Router as Server?

    For some closure on this (in this forum), I tested it using two different Wi-Fi hotspots, one with and one without a captive portal … and both worked. So it seems like the Airport Wi-Fi (that didn't work via the Slate AX to my Asus RT-AX86U) has some other setup or routing which prevents...

    Use OpenVPN on a GliNET device to VPN into Merlin Router as Server?

    Right you are, and my apologies for that. OK, so I am testing this setup with a Slate AX at work, connected to a Public Wifi (actually close to an Airport which IMO is a good a test bed for what I want it for). Not on cellular. Now, with my trusty iPhone I can Tunnel to my home PC (via Asus...

    Use OpenVPN on a GliNET device to VPN into Merlin Router as Server?

    Hi, Searched the Merlin forum and asked on GliNET's forum to no avail, but it's a pretty simple task (or so I thought). I have a working OpenVPN Server on an RT-AX86U with Merlin 386.7 into which I can connect and RDP from Windows Notebooks and multiple IOS devices using the exported OpenVPN...

    Diversion Diversion - the Router Ad-Blocker 4.3.2 | released July 17 2022

    Hi again, My apologies in advance for the apparent bump, but I thought I'd try to revert to an ealier version of Diversion (no pun intended) to test out if the issue above was caused by a recent Diversion update or by something else. However I cannot find (on the Diversion WebPage) a mechanism...

    Diversion Diversion - the Router Ad-Blocker 4.3.2 | released July 17 2022

    Hi, I have been happily using Diversion for quite a while (thank you to the Swiss Master) , just the light version to IP 0.0.0.0, no entware packages. I am a relatively low-power user although I did manage to add a couple of modifications to the WhiteLists for sites I wanted to let through...

    [ 386.7 alpha Build(s) ] Testing available build(s)

    The maths is actually OK; I think what needs to be fixed is the ability for pollsters to give more than one answer, answers which are mutually exclusive.

    Intermittent WiFi Disconnects on various Clients; Deauth for "unspecified reason", disassociated, 386.5_2

    Thank you. The Router is working; but the Clients disconnect. If I just put the log to one side for now and look at the symptoms explained above, there seems to be an issue. Like I suggested above, I have no idea whether the log is telling me the issue lies with the Router, the Client or the...

    Intermittent WiFi Disconnects on various Clients; Deauth for "unspecified reason", disassociated, 386.5_2

    Hi, Over the last month or so I upgraded my RT-AX86U 386.5 as a full reset then dirty upgrade to 386.5_2. Set up is in my sig, Router and 2 AIMESH Clients, I use Smart-Connect, nothing fancy except Diversion w/o the WebUI and an OpenVPN Server, 30-40 DHCP reservations. Clients are also on...

    Release Asuswrt-Merlin 386.5 is now available

    Quick Q please, a few F/W versions ago there was an issue with Guest Network 1 and the advice was to use Guest Network 2, which I still do. Is this advice still unchanged in this current 386.5 FW? I was thinking to switch to Guest Network 1...

    Setting up a VPN Server for RDP Access - Exclude RDP Port

    Thanks for that, actually I'm not married to Microsofts RDP per se, just thought the Client Apps on iPADs, Phones, Notebooks etc. would be more robust and ubiquitous using it (also for other family users). Oddly, a long time ago (before TeamViewer) I used to use UVNC too, with all those code...

    Setting up a VPN Server for RDP Access - Exclude RDP Port

    Fantastic thank you Colin, very succinctly put. I am assuming that because I am "virtually" inside my LAN, then no ports need to be opened by RDP (on any machine) for me to connect to any PC within it, just the IP Address. Awesome, I have seen quite a few posts and have been reading a lot...

    Setting up a VPN Server for RDP Access - Exclude RDP Port

    Thank you very much to both of you. I’m afraid it might take some time for me to get my head fully around elorimer‘s explanation although I will try. In the case of Both, with the example website given, if the iPad is connected to say some coffee shop Wi-Fi somewhere, does this mean it will...

    Setting up a VPN Server for RDP Access - Exclude RDP Port

    Colin in this thread https://www.snbforums.com/threads/allow-access-to-port-only-from-certain-remote-ips.64435/ had a nice way of explaining RDP and OpenVPN simply but I have another question, so hopefully I am not asking something already answered (or I can only find very complex responses). I...

    Diversion Diversion - the Router Ad-Blocker v4.2.x (see new thread for 4.3.x)

    Thanks I think I had some success following this, essentially processing the added whitelist entry a couple of different ways. http://www.snbforums.com/threads/diversion-whitelist-exemptions-for-google.60503/ will also consider the other domains. thanks! k
