Having an issue with the OpenVPN server not connecting. When I reboot the router I am able to login with the VPN connection and after I close the connection for the first time I am not able to connect a second time. I also am noticing a shady IP address that I do not recognize in the VPN status page. Any ideas on what I can do to fix this issue?


Part of the Furniture
This problem has been reported a few times recently. IIRC in all cases it was because the VPN server was running on a common port and being bombarded by port scanners/hackers. Change to an uncommon port and the problem should go away.
