    checking tcp for 1194 when openvpn is running UDP not going to show open.

    And ping is different than talking to openvpn running on udp 1194 that the wizard created a rule for.  If you want to be able to ping your wan IP, then you need to create a wan rule that allows that.

    Checking that UDP ports are open are never going to be very accurate..



  • thankss

    great - glad you got it sorted, so you allow for ping then?  I normally run tcp port (443 normally since pretty given will be open anywhere there is internet) along with the udp port for my openvpn.  The gives you options where udp 1194 might not be open from where your at, or if your behind a proxy using tcp on 443 can be bounced off a proxy, etc.
