I'm a hobbyist, decided to try out OpenVPN Access Server. I searched many many times for a tutorial that cover my situation but even if there is, the technical terminologies used is beyond me. My goals are simple:
- ability to connect to home desktop, running on Win 10 Pro, to access the installed Matlab there, from anywhere as long as I have access to internet
- but through secure connections, I thought that means I need my other laptop to be connected to this desktop via VPN
- I also want to hide my IP location whenever I'm using public Wi-Fi
- bypassing geo restrictions to contents in the US when I'm traveling internationally by VPN connection
- being able to connect to this access server on my phone running iOS
- Downloaded the OpenVPN AS VHD and followed the instructions here: https://openvpn.net/vpn-server-resource ... n-hyper-v/
- Created one external virtual switch to be connected with physical NIC, and allowed sharing with management OS. There's already a default internal switch, which comes with Hyper-V, which is said to have NAT capability
- Also this home desktop is connected via ethernet to a modem router which gives wireless internet to the entire home
I thought to achieve the goals I mentioned above, what I need is for OpenVPN Access Server VM to be the one connected to internet, and admin would only be accessible in the internal network (so I should be able to open admin webpage from the home desktop's browser, since it's connected to the default internal switch?). I certainly don't want admin webpage to be accessible to world wide net.
Any help will be appreciated!
