I've recently purchased a VR2800 wifi modem router and I am very much satisfied with it.
Maybe there are some minor issues I cannot manage to addres maybe due to my poor networking knowledge.
When I am on VPN (via OpenVPN) from my android phone everything works as if I am connected from within my home wifi net. I can access my nas server files in read write mode, I can successfully ping and any smart device connected to the network (smart tv, sound system,...) and I even can log in to my wifi extender typing the relevant local lan ip address of the device as if I am at home.
What I cannot do
-login to my vr2800 router management page (403 forbidden error given), even if is pingable.
-use the smart devices from the app on my phone as I would do at home. They actually can't be controlled when on VPN. I can ping them, but I cannot use them.
My local lan ip pool address has been changed from the default one, so there shouldn't be issues relating to ip's conflict. It looks like even if I am in VPN, some apps won't recognise that, even if I can ping the related devices. You can ping them but can't use them. I've also tried to do some port forwarding with no luck. Anyway as I can reach them via ping, there shouldn't be a port issue and that's what I don't understand where the problem is.
Any help from you guys?
thanks in advance
