I use a linksys wrt 3200acm with vpn Express, the xbox one needs NAT Open to play online, unfortunately with vpn Express activated the NAT is not open while if I disable the Vpn the xbox works perfectly with NAT open, there is some solution for to open NAT with active vpn? Thank you

Use Policy Based Routing for your VPN

Enter the ip adresses you want to use in the PBR field of the VPN. Use cidr notation

This is a lot more complex than it might first appear.

If you want the xbox to use the VPN (and by that statement, I assume you mean the xbox should be able to both initiate connections outbound via the VPN, and have internet users initiate connections inbound via the VPN), then that assumes that a) port forwarding is supported by your VPN provider, b) if it does, that those ports needed by the xbox are available (for the few VPN providers that support port forwarding, some has serious limitations, such as only specific ports and quantity), and c) you intend to create your own *local* port forwards on the OpenVPN client (UPnP won't work w/ the VPN, only the WAN!).

As I said, it gets complicated. There's a lot more to consider here than simply wanting to use the VPN for the xbox.

My vpn provider does not allow port forwarding so it is not possible to do so. I thank you for your explanation.
