Confused about switch from Dynamic DNS to VPN

Postby sbass » Mon Feb 12, 2018 7:09 pm

I used to be to access my HDA by typing my Dynamic DNS in a browser when I wasn’t on my home network. Then that stopped working.
I tried to figure out what changed and found in the Amaihi links, that I now needed to use a specific VPN application to access my HDA when I was away from home.

I paid for and downloaded OpenVPN application from the Amahi website for my HDA. I downloaded the OpenVPN client for the laptop outside of my network. I configured my router (on the home network end) to have a Local start & end port of 1194 UDP and an External start & end port of 1194 UDP.

YET…

When I am away from home/on a different network on my client computer (laptop) I am unable to connect. I get a yellow “A” and a "time out" message.

Can anyone provide some insight as to what I am doing wrong, or what I need to fix?
