Setting up OpenVPN Server on Asuswrt-Merlin RT-AC68 (384.19)


New Around Here
Greetings everyone,

I started by reading the How to setup a VPN Server with Asus routers 380.68 updated 08.24 tutorial but I was getting errors after importing the client1.ovpn file into the second router. Then I found the OpenVPN Server on Asuswrt-Merlin tutorial, I enabled the Asus DDNS service and made some changes to the cipher settings, manually entered the username/password on the Client router, and now it connects. Remaining issue is to be able to access the NAS's mapped drives ( connected to the Server router ( from a laptop connected to the Client router ( The network used on the Server router is and the network used on the Client router is, following the tutorial advice. The WAN connection on the Client router is an USB LTE modem from Bell reporting to be in the network. I'm suspecting a routing issue here but I'm totally clueless as to how to troubleshoot it further and fix it.

Anyone has an idea of where to look at and try?
