Admin web UI accessible, client web UI not if firewalled

Post by stephen_liu » Tue Sep 13, 2011 9:48 pm

I have an OpenVPN access server behind a home router. I'm running the web server on the standard port 943 and using standard UDP over port 1194 for the VPN service. Both are configured to be forwarded to the OpenVPN AS in the router (Verizon FIOS Actiontec MR424). I've downloaded the client.conf and am able to remotely connect to the VPN server without issue.

I can also remotely connect to the admin web UI at (https://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:943/admin) without issue.
However, when I try to connect remotely to the client web UI (https://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:943), I get the prompt about the web server certificate, but when I click OK to ignore it, the browser then times out.

Are there other ports that need to be opened for the client web UI?

Turns out I had the internal IP configured in the "Server network settings" page. Changing it to the dynamic hostname I had set up for the WAN IP fixed this.
