networks with multiple routers problems

Post by ziggy81401 » Sat Dec 05, 2020 8:29 pm


I have four routers

I had expressVPN on the second router-WTR3200 in this exact setup and worked great. I've reflashed the WRT3200 to factory linksys software - so I'm know logging into my router with the linksysysmart WIFI.

1. The first router is my ISP router -calix (fiber router 192.168.1.X.) (cant take it out and replace it with the WRT3200)

2. calix router LAN - to - WAN WRT3200 - changed the WRT3200 router IP address to 192.168.2.X I'm trying to set up openVPN server on the WRT3200 but

1. the server address is 192.168.1.X (can not change this IP) or do I select DNS name, if so what or how do I select the name?
2. and I'm not for sure what the protocol -UDP or TCP should be

These are the only options under the setup. Do I need to change any other settings on the WRT3200? Like NAT or DHCP?

I emailed the OPVN file to my IPHONE - went in to ADD file in the OPENVPN APP - it says failed to import profile remote option not specified. So i have something incorrect in the setting or will this even work?

The other two routers are connected to the LAN ports on the WRT3200 (LAN - LAN) and have IP address of 192.168.2.X and are working great.

Thanks for the help in advance!
