Hello everybody.

So I updated my ancient AC68U to 386.9. Because of the NVRAM issue I decided to do a full factory reset and set everything up from scratch again. So I activated VPN server 1, created the users etc - tested from my phone - get the connection - server also says I'm connected - by no data goes through. Tried changing default port, firewall settings, mainly touching buttons in the hopes that it would just start to work but it didn't.
At some stage I activated server 2 to run some more tests and that worked immediately right out of the box. So I compared Server1 config-file to Server2 config-file and there is no difference at all. Both where setup without using advanced setting - I did not change anything I'm aware of - but if I connect to server 1 nothing goes through - if I connect to server 2 it works as intended.

Is it me? Thoughts?

BTW after full factory reset and setting up my usuall stuff - 2 guest networks - about 30 known devices - 1 VPN server - 1 VPN client - I'm back to 62500 bytes used NVRAM. So, I guess what I am trying to say is - if you have a rather rich setup - stay on 386.7_2
