    Hi,

    My current ISP (hyperoptic in the UK) has implemented CGNAT, so I can't access my router from outside my home network. I thought about setting up the OpenVPN server, and access to it through IPv6 (considering that the ISP I'm under when I'm away from home supports it), but I'm quite lost and I don't know how to proceed.

    Is there something I have to do to set the OpenVPN server? How do I get a config file that points to the ipv6 address of the router?

    If you could point me to a document or tutorial I would appreciate it.

    Thanks!

    Asuswrt-Merlin's OpenVPN implementation does not support IPv6.

    Well, that's a bummer!

    Thanks for your quick reply, though!
