VR1600v, Wifi does not work with openVPN

Highlighted
Level 3

Hello Moderators,

 

I have just switched from ADSL2+ to NBN with TPG. It's good stuff.

I used to work from home during the ADSL2+ time using openVPN on both Ethernet and wifi connection to my old ADSL2+ modem.

 

With NBN using VR1600v, I cannot connect to work with openVPN using wifi.

However, when connected using the Ethernet, I can use openVPN to connect to work.

 

Is there any setting on the wifi side of the VR1600v that I need to set to allow openVPN connection?

How do I allow outgoing TCP port 1194 to allow VPN passthrough?

 

Many thanks for your time and help.

Cheers,

Thanh
