Got my keys created using openVPN 2.1.4 on a SUSE linux distro. Can moved all keys to my Asus RT-N16 DDWR server.
Router Name DD-WRT
Router Model Asus RT-N16
Firmware Version DD-WRT v24-sp2 (05/24/13) kingkong - build 21661M
Linux 22.214.171.124 #481 Fri May 24 12:23:45 CEST 2013 mips
Now things get confusing when configuring the openVPN server via the Web GUI. The guide states
"There are default parameters that DD-WRT will always wite to the config file and which you cant change if you use the GUI server mode:
does that mean I can't change these at all?
What port forwarding rules would I need to get this to work?
I already have a port forward rule to forward requests from internet port 443 to server on main router to point to my ddwrt box on port 443. This works as I was initially running my secure web site on this port. I have stopped the web service to open the port for openVPN. Any suggestions on how I would configure the GUI to get a VPN connection to work over port 443?
Why would it specify the DH and ca and all that stuff as default peramiter "if you use the GUI" and then the gui has textfields spaces asking for these? The tutorial is very confusing and doesn't explain things for people that need to configure it for a bit of a different deployment style. Not everyone using a DDWR box has it setup as the internet gateway...
Hey thanks for the link spanman. Will look into it, I was able to paste all my cert and key information into the GUI, and saved and applied the settings, And checke dmy proccess and saw an openvpn process running. So at least I know that it did start successfully. One thing at a time, I was able to set almost all the settings right in the GUI, even set it to listen on Port 443 via TCP. Slowly but surely I will get there. Thanks. I'll check later today to see if I can get a client to connect. I saw a site that showed me how to create a .opvn file for my iphone. I really hope it works. Will let ya know. Thanks again spanman!
