I can't speak English very well, so I used Google Translator.
Please point out words that are difficult to understand. I will make it easier to understand.

Local verification on Mac Catalina.

I'm using static IP and DNS is using,
I also gave the router a domain name. I don't know what role this is...

There are 4 problems.

First, you can't access OpenVPN from your local network to an external domain.
Cannot access openvpn port from local to domain (handshake problem)
You need to change "remote" in client.ovpn to to access it.
Is it a DNS problem?

Second, change the remote setting of client.ovpn to and connect. However, when the internet connection is lost, the internet on ethernet does not work. As a solution, go to System Preferences -> Network -> Devices -> Advanced -> DHCP Lease Renewal.
Another DNS problem? (The first time I connect to OpenVPN, the internet works fine. When I disconnect from OpenVPN, the internet does not work and I cannot access OpenVPN again.)

Third, it is a problem with OpenVPN-Connect and OpenVPN (CLI).
Initially, I used a remotely configured Client.ovpn (created automatically by the router) as the domain. A connection error (udp4/6 handshaking) occurred in OpenVPN-Conect. When I first asked this here I asked to set udp4 here but it still didn't work. So I ran the same Client.ovpn with OpenVPN (CLI). It worked very well. There is no setting change.
There seems to be a problem with OpenVPN-Connect. Or is there something wrong with the configuration file?

Finally, I want to create two ways to connect to a specific client using the router's port forwarding function and the OpenVPN function.
For example
First ssh -p 11111 [email protected] or
Second, after connecting to OpenVPN, ssh -p 22 [email protected]
You need to use these two methods.
Is this possible? When I tried port forwarding it always stopped.
How i tested it.
SSH 11111 port access without running VPN -> port forwarding successful.
Run VPN and access SSH 11111 port -> No response.

Thanks in advance to those who helped me.

OpenVPN (CLI) domain connection success and failure records.
After connecting to OpenVPN for the first time, is it normal when I close the connection?)(same color texts)
