Must ssh first or not able to connect

Postby MajorD » Wed May 17, 2017 8:47 pm

I am using openVPN on Android on my phone (7.1.1) and tablet (5.0.2) with the same result:

Trying to connect from the internet (4G or Public LAN), the server times out.
If I ssh through my router/modem to a host on my LAN, then ssh to the openVPN server, then logout and close the ssh connection, I can connect to my openVPN server and all traffic goes through the VPN... But only on the device I used to ssh in.

How's that for a brain teaser?

Any thoughts?

Any idea of what I could check?

The logs don't seem to indicate anything.
