I recently activated VPN server in my RT-AX3000 so that I can access my internal network while away, as needed.

I defaulted to the 'General' setting for 'VPN Details', but am curious if I would be better served tweaking some of the default settings.

Is there any advantage to changing the default server port or default key/certificates?

My primary concern is maintaining a secure network.

Definitely change the default port the server is listening on. If you don't you'll have bots swarming all over it and filling up your syslog with junk. There are no default key/certificates, they are uniquely generated each time you create a new server instance.
