Openvpn tcp 443 and webserver



  • I have an openvpn server on UDP 1195 and a client on TCP 1194. I want to add a openvpn server on TCP 443 for occasional use when UDP 1195 is blocked. Currently I'm running a nextcloud server on port 80 and 443 with NAT rules to forward traffic on those ports to the nextcloud server.

    The manual says to "run the OpenVPN server on port tcp/443, and in place of a port forward, let OpenVPN hand off the HTTPS traffic to a web server."

    If I remove the port forwarding and add port-share x.x.x.x 443 to the openvpn server on TCP 443 how would things work when I'm using the server on UDP 1195?
