VPN - Ooma - UDP 1194

Just a tip for anyone with Ooma, it seems Ooma uses UDP port 1194, so that's not going to work for you.

So, here's what I did, and that seemed to work.
change port in /etc/openvpn/amahi.conf & /etc/openvpn/amahi-dup-cn.conf
edit config on client HDAConnect - add this line: "remote <something> <new port>"
Make sure all the router forwards are set up, and there you go.

Before that I was getting:

TLS Error: TLS key negotiation failed to occur within 60 seconds (check your network connectivity)
TLS Error: TLS handshake failed

What port did you choose? No matter what I choose, when I restart openvpn using :
service openvpn start..
The system gives me a FAILED message.

openvpn[6802]: TCP/UDP: Socket bind failed on local address [undef]:4394: Address already in use

this bug may be related:

we had two conf files in /etc/openvpn/ ... please do this:

Code: Select all

cd /etc/openvpn mv amahi-dup-cn.conf
the error (if caused by this) is harmless. soooooooorry.

I did make the fix you suggested. The error goes away.
I still cannot connect using openvpn. I am pretty sure the IP is correct for my server.
When I try to access the port I want, I get "TLS negotiation error"..

Is there a way for me to check if an attempt was made to connect at least? If I do a netstat, openvpn does not show up as one of the listeners..
I suspect vpn connection is not being attempted to my machine at all.
I have double checked my router and the correct port is forwarded
