thank you all. i've almost resigned myself to the fact that it doesn't work with simple gui settings. i also don't know enough to tinker with config files on my own. i asked my colleague again about his settings on synology. he redirects port 443 to the default port 1194 via his home router. So he uses the router-nat, is reachable from outside via 443 and simply routes to the VPN instance.
there is probably no comparable NAT function in cloudron, is there?
while searching the internet i found the "haproxy" in docker-hub. maybe such a container (app) could transparently redirect from a host with port 443 to an internal ip with port 7494. but this is probably going too far and i don't want to overuse your help.
@girish Awesome! That got it. Thanks. The first time I tried it it didn't take after the reboot but I added back in the " " marks and it worked as expected. Thank you so much. And again for the quick response!
Recognizing TCP OpenVPN traffic is really not easy, as it kinda looks like any other TLS encrypted stream. As far as I know, doing so requires advanced Deep Packet Inspection capabilities that are only available to few countries, and even this is not foolproof.
I don't know a single commercial VPN provider that provides a public IP to each VPN connection
It is probably because you didn't fell the need 🙂
I lived in Switzerland and before in Canada, where Torrenting and self hosting is not an issue.
But since I'm in Thailand; first, Torrenting is it as the Government fell about you, and the Internet is monitored and limited (not as much than China but still) they block several ports and websites.
It took me a while to find and I chat with a lot of online support to find few of them
Has I will not recommend it but still a good example PureVPN support this
you control which port you open with OpenVPN but the IP is dynamic and yes it still through a NAT, and you could buy a static IP available via only PPTP (which they don't claim at loud).
If I remember well mullvad also offer this kind of service
Thanks to everyone, I managed to get a few games going, some did not work, but they probably wouldn't run in an actual LAN either. Didn't have to adjust anything, The game I was trying was just not working properly.
@girish so is the process I understand about the installing steps the right way for this? thanks for the suggestion, I just know that we can do my.vpnserver.domain.com. Am intending for consumer use for now.
