how to raise VPN from openVPN client to Softether server through Azure

Post by mfran2002 » Thu Jun 25, 2020 7:59 am

Hi all,
it seems the only way to bypass my ISP strong NAT is to pass through Azure

then, I'm not able to connect DIRECTLY the client and server (both windows laptop) but mandatorily I have to "bounce" from Azure...

Now, I have successfully setup a VPN using "Softether VPN client and Softether VPN server", via Azure

Under this configuration, is there a way to use "openVPN client" instead of "Softether VPN client"?

thanks

Excuse me TinCanTech,
I didn't know how to formulate and explain my issue.

I rephrase my question to be more clear and avoid wasting time. See below:


is there a way to use "openVPN client" to raise a VPN with "Softether VPN server" via Azure?


please remove my thread if still not compliant

For what purpose ?

if you are going to use softether then use it.

Why make your life even more complicated by mixing products that don't mix ?

excuse me TinCanTech, I would like to use openVPN because I'm more confident with it and, above all, because if I will be able to do it, I will use that configuration to reach my home from my android phone with openVPN client android app

softether HAS NOT any android client app

can you help me now?
