Port-forwarding is a fundamentally necessary feature – so that traffic on the designated UDP port can arrive where it needs to go in the internal network.

Likewise, static routing – so that packets bearing "internal" IP-addresses (such as 10.8.0.x or the addresses found in any remote subnet) are directed back to the OpenVPN software-router.

And yet, Apple once sold an "AirPortŪ" router that was devoid of both of these features.


(Incidentally, no port is "open/forwarded by default" in any router – not even 80/443 – because the vendor has no reason to assume that you are running a public server on your local network, and in any case it would have no idea where it would be. Therefore, it assumes that no incoming connection request should be accepted, nor forwarded to any particular place.)

This script from github makes installing and managing OpenVPN too easy.

Install Windows OpenVPN client and put VPN certificate in folder and you're good to go on client side.

Mentioning this because it's a very quick setup and works very well as a stand alone product.


Is there a way to use this script for username/password instead of a certificate? Seems I cannot use a certificate on the iPhone.

Sorry, I had to download the OpenVPN Client app from the app store. I got everything running now, Thanks a lot for all the help. The only problem I'm having now is.....IT'S REALLY SLOW.
