    Wireless devices not working over vpn?

    As the title states I have a few wireless ip cams I configured last night and they work well on LAN but no go while connected over openvpn? Any ideas? Btw, I have hardwired ip cams and samba shares I am able to access just fine on openvpn just the wireless devices are giving me trouble...

    Got it...I will plan on using WinSCP then! Because I guess I am an idiot...lol I dunno...just had a weak moment I guess! Yes I understand that /jffs/configs and /jffs/scripts are folders created by the Asus firmware. So I am not creating any more folders just "files" under these two folders...

    Your post is very detailed and very much appreciated....I must admit it's my fault due to being a beginner that I am not understanding what specific app I will need to use to do all this...I have heard people post a lot...PuTTY, MobaXterm, WinSCP, XShell....I thought a good all around app would...

    Martineau- Thanks for responding and the assistance with connecting back via VPN. It makes sense that VPN connection would be dropped with that FW rule as its not letting any camera traffic get outbound. I do have an internal NVR set up that my cameras are configured on so I am assuming they...

    Xentrk- I read on another post that forum user @ColinTaylor suggested you can use an application called WinSCP to log onto router and create a new file in the /jffs/scripts directory due to someone's inexperienced skill set in Linux command line environment...

    I tried to go to network map and locate ip and select the "block intenet access" or whatever it's called. It seemed to work as the next day the logs were clear....however...it blocks your connection to the cam when u vpn back in...and I can't have that because that is my primary means of...

    I understand what your saying but I have turned off all P2P services as well as UPnP, bonjour and any thing else you can think of on the cam. I do not forward any ports and use vpn to connect into my network from outbound to be as safe as possible. Sucks that you do everything you can to block...

    Yep been there done that...all well and good until you try to connect back via vpn...no go. What I did do however is leave default gateway as legit of what it really is and I changed DNS to non existent addresses like 1.0.0.1 and it looks like on the logs it not in the "established" category...

    Ok, its getting a little bit clearer....I think my only hang up at this point is whether I need to just use Putty and input those iptables commands into the /jffs/scripts directory or do I NEED to use that other app and use that editor (Nano) to input the firewall-start file? I believe you said...

    I am good up to here so far....if I am understanding correctly. Once I SSH in using Putty or that app you suggested...btw do I just type in the router IP and my username / password to SSH in? Anyway, I can simply add iptables commands after logging in except they won't be saved if I reboot the...

    Yep, aware of the vulnerability. When you buy cams from non authorized places (ebay), which a lot of folks do, you don't get firmware upgrade abilities.

    Dahua IPC-HDW4431C-A Trust me...I logged into the camera and turned everything off that I could find. It's known out there that some of these cams could have "hidden" access that you can't see. Probably some cloud connection or something....

    Thanks for your post...really appreciate it. In reference to your comment about cams calling home to china....yeah that's what I am afraid of which is why I really want to rectify this situation. All my cams are assigned static IP's out of my dhcp scope so I do not have to worry about overlap...

    I looked in my "active connections" log this morning and I do not see the camera making a connection outbound any longer. Maybe sometime overnight the connection finally got dropped...not sure. I still am not feeling confident this is a "long term" solution. I feel like I need to put in a...
