    I have always used RDP to remotely connect to an internal machine at my home 192.168.1.3 using OpenVPN remotely, but recently I have not been able to do this after a factory reset. I can successfully connect and access other things inside the network via VPN such as my router setting on 192.168.1.1, but RDP will NOT connect to another other machine such as .3 or .4. Internally I can connect RDP machine to machine so I know its working on the internal machines, but not when connected externally with OpenVPN. Any idea what setting could be causing this? It seems the RDP is not being sent to the machine due to the VPN.

    Lastly, I don't want to expose any port forwards and need to use VPN, so that is not an option and don't suggest this as a workaround.

    See attached pictures of current settings.

    Actually, I completely forgot I had to do that custom script! Thanks for the workaround flashback and that should fix it!
