Hi, I am using a dsl-n16 router modem and I have a problem.

How can I use vpn client and ddns at the same time and connect to the modem remotely !?

Currently the ddns service works fine on its own, but once I set up the vpn client, I can no longer access the modem remotely.

Please help me!

All the DDNS service does is provide a means to keep your DDNS hostname updated w/ your current WAN ip. Nothing more. At that point, you can use that hostname in your remote access request to find your router on the public internet.

The most common reason you can no longer reach your remote services over the WAN w/ an active OpenVPN client is described in the following link.
