If anyone finds a good informative website for setting rules and such with ASUS routers, please share lol I'm an idiot with this stuff and there's so much info out there I get discouraged when I start looking.its all about rule order, you can setup a rule to allow all devices to reach your mail/time server and put that above the rule to block all your cameras.. most should stop processing rules when it first finds one it encounters.
Don't know about the RT-N18U, but I have an Asus RT-N66U and have no problems with OpenVPN on my Android phone and iPad.I am now thinking of buying the ASUS RT-N18U, to be able to use OpenVpn.
But I read in another thread, which I don't find, that somebody recently occurred problems with OpenVpn on android.
It had stopped working or if it was problems after an upgrade, some kind of issue anyway.
So I just want to be sure, that before I buy the router, it won't be any problems to use it with OpenVpn on an android phone?
Open the file with notepad on a computer, does it have the certificate embedded in it? That will look like a bloke of random text.I was wondering if someone could offer some assistance...
I got a new router, netgear nighthawk R7800 that has a built in OpenVPN server (?). Anyway, I have it setup and it works great with my Android Phone.
The router generates an *.ovpn file that I copied to my Android phone. I imported that file into the OpenVPN client on my phone and everything works find. Without connecting via VPN, I can kill my phones WiFi, while still connected to the cell network, and my BlueIris for Android will not connect to my BlueIris system. After opening OpenVPN on Andriod and "connecting" (OpenVPN Client to OpenVPN Server) I can then connect to the BlueIris system and see my cameras.
The problem comes when I try to get that same "smart_phone.ovpn" file to work with my Wife's iPhone 6S. I found some instructions online that talked about getting that *.ovpn file to my Wife's phone via itunes. My wife does not have itunes installed on her PC so that was out. I found another instruction that said email the *.ovpn file to her email. I did that and opened the email from her phone. When I double clicked that attachment from within the email client on her phone, it asked what app do you want to open the attachment with. I pointed to OpenVPN. It looks like the file imported into OpenVPN for iPhone correctly (it shows up similarly to as it does in the Android OpenVPN client), but when I try to "connect" it always times out.
In Android, I copied the *.ovpn file to my phone. I just dropped the file into my downloads folder. In the OpenVPN client, I tapped on import from SD card and I pointed to that folder... the file imported. Every time I've tried to connect, the OpenVPN client has connected to the OpenVPN Server. Everytime, no delay, it just works. The way software should work.
I'm not at all familiar with the iPhone ecosystem. If anyone could offer some suggestions for getting the iPhone OpenVPN client to work with the Netgear R7800 OpenVPN Server, that would be awesome.
Thanks in advance.
This worked on my iPad with the OpenVPN Connect app. Maybe it'll work with your iPhone 6s. In the email attachment file do a long press on the file until a sub menu pops up, then select <Copy to OpenVPN>When I double clicked that attachment from within the email client on her iphone, it asked what app do you want to open the attachment with. I pointed to OpenVPN.
Open the file with notepad on a computer, does it have the certificate embedded in it? That will look like a bloke of random text.
Also check the server address within the file.
With my Synology NAS, I had two files, the cert and the config file, which worked on Android but not on iOS.
