I set up an ASUS router and enabled openvpn. I downloaded openvpn connect on my iphone. I can access my cameras with safari and data connection. I can access UI3 on data connection. When I try to connect with the BI ios app all I get is "unable to make connection, check server address". I'm a newb at this, but it makes no sense to me that I can access UI3 with openvpn, but then the BI ios app will not work. Any suggestions? thx

*EDIT*

It just hit me, I put my local ip for LAN and WAN in the BI app. Now it seems to be working.

Thanks for posting your discovery, it could help others who did not understand to use the LAN in both.

BTW, your solution has been posted in several past threads, but understandably it may be hard to find in a search.
