    Public IP ''Your ISP DHCP does not function properly'' fixed - but how?

    I waited for a total of 2 hours and nothing happened until I started manually tweaking the settings. Ahh brilliant, thanks! Yeah, maybe. Oh well, I can't explain it but hopefully someone else with similar issues will come along one day and see this thread.

    OpenVPN Synology Server Poll Time out

    I contacted my ISP and got a public ipv4 address from them. I can now finally use OpenVPN and all is well. Although after receiving the ipv4, new issues arose that I brought up in a more fitting part of the forums. The issues are solved, just asking how they're solved...

    Public IP ''Your ISP DHCP does not function properly'' fixed - but how?

    I'm just trying to wrap my head around this: I was trying to setup a OpenVPN on my Asus router and successfully connect to it from my iPhone outside of my network, and after days of troubleshooting, it seems like the fault was because my ISP is using CG-NAT. So I got a public IP (ipv4) from...

    OpenVPN Synology Server Poll Time out

    My WAN IP is 100.65.xx.xx On https://www.whatsmyip.org/ my IP is 155.4.xxx.xxx What does this mean? Does it mean that all along my problems have been due to the massive ball and chain around my ankle provided by the lovely people over at my ISP? Is the ISP responsible for me putting the local...

    OpenVPN Synology Server Poll Time out

    I have created a DDNS address in the router settings. Do I have to include it in the exported ovpn file, or how does that work? Sure here: (I've replaced several letters and deleted rows in the cert and key stuff below for privacy just in case) remote (Removed remote IP address) 1194 float...

    OpenVPN Synology Server Poll Time out

    Yes I stopped forwarding 1194. Running: Signature version: 2.282 Current Version : 3.0.0.4.386_46065-ge51f2dc Alright, so I saved the settings and hard factory reset the router, didn't import the settings, setup the router as brand new. Entered all the previous wifi names and passwords...

    OpenVPN Synology Server Poll Time out

    Thanks for the thorough reply. I just followed a quick guide and set up an OpenVPN server on my Asus router and after exporting the config file to my phone I'm getting the same error message in the log as before ''Server poll timeout.'' I'm guessing it's the router that's at fault. Unrelated to...

    OpenVPN Synology Server Poll Time out

    It’s better? I’ve thought about it but wouldn’t that slow down all other devices on the network, or just the one connected to the VPN? Also, is it possible to have an OpenVPN and a VPN client like NordVPN on the same router?

    OpenVPN Synology Server Poll Time out

    All the guides I’ve read have said to not use the router setup in DSM and instead port forward within the router. Nevertheless, I just tried it and it says “Failed” on connection test result.

    OpenVPN Synology Server Poll Time out

    It’s blank for me, can’t press it. I’ve configured the port via the ASUS router settings and not in DSM.

    Ok status on the port? How do I check that? Like I wrote a couple of replies back I went to portchecktool.com and typed in 1194 but it said it failed.

    OpenVPN Synology Server Poll Time out

    1. Got redirect-gateway ipv6 in the config file 2. DDNS is normal 3. I have forwarded 1194 via the Asus router settings, not in Synology DSM. When I press router configuration - set up router in DSM, it says my router is not compatible, even though my router (RT-AC68U) is compatible according to...

    OpenVPN Synology Server Poll Time out

    I have a DDNS setup via my NAS, and it says status normal. In the VPN config file, I've tried entering both my NAS static IP address and the DDNS hostname, none of them work. I just went into portchecktool.com and entered port 1194, and got '' Problem! I could not see your service on (my IP...

    OpenVPN Synology Server Poll Time out

    Every guide I’ve read on how to configure an OpenVPN in a Synology NAS uses a static internal 192.168.x.xxx IP address. If it works for them I don’t see how that could be the problem for me.
