Thanks for putting this together. I just followed your instructions step by step and it worked on the first try.....that never happens!I'm back with an Asus router, bought a RT-AX86U on Friday, installed over the weekend.
Was fairly straightforward to get OpenVPN working with it. Didn't work the first time I tried, not sure if it just needed more time, was less then an hour after setting up openVPN. Or if the Home Assistant page I was testing need internet and local access. I started with local network access only. I enabled both, tried the next day, and it worked fine.
So I'm in the process of updating my blogger instructions based on what I did.
Note that I installed ASUSWRT-MERLIN before I did anything, so this will be based on merlin, and not the stock asus firmware.
I have it setup on my android. I'm guessing that i'll have to connect to my OpenVPN Profile each time i want to access the blue iris app. I'm not sure i want to just leave it connected forever....am i wrong in thinking that?
