Hello,

 

I've problem on TP-Link MR600 with connection by OpenVPN from external.

 

I configured MR600:

- Time synchronisation from Internet, later I added: 0.pl.pool.ntp.org; 194.146.251.100

- DDNS from TP Link Cloud

- OpenVPN (Enable, UDP, Internet and home); Saved; Certyficate generated

- Client used on Windows 10 (OpenVPN 2.4.8, tested also on other clients) and Android (OpenVPN for Android by Arne Schwabe)

OK. Problem solved. smiley

 

I got from my mobile internet operator "direct" dynamic IP (additianally paid) and now VPN works perfectly (using TP Link DDNS).

Hello All,

 

probably I found problem. My mobile internet provider is giving IP address behind NAT.

IP address which I see in TP-Link configuration (blow) is like: 10.x.x.x

 

 

when I check my IP address which is visible "from internet" looks like below: 5.x.x.x

 

 

 

Addresses differ so I think my Mobile Internet Provider is not giving me external dynamic IP, but some NAT IP.

 

I'll discus with my mobile ISP and try to get external dynamic (or static) IP address (not "behind NAT" / under heavy NAT address).

I'll let you know if it solved my problem.
