Trying to get OpenVpn to work Using Asus RT-N66U Router with Netgear Mr1100 Hotspot. I can connect the RT-N66u with the MR1100 Nighthawk with an ethernet cable and access the internet thru the Rt-N66u wireless. This part seems to work fine. But when I try to set up OpenVpn on the Rt-N66U I cannot access the router from the outside via the internet using openvpn. It never connects. There is a note in the Rt-N66U setup page that says that portforwarding needs to be setup with the hotspot. How to set up VPN server with port forwarding? | Official Support | ASUS Global. I did this, but the note is still there. And I edited the client file as the instructions said. I also tried to change to bridge mode, access point mode, and repeater point mode, but Openvpn option does not appear in the RT-N66U setup pages in any of these modes. I can't figure out what settings must changed to make OpenVpn work in this configuration. Any ideas are appreciated.
