- My PI has a local address of
- Added my SKY public address to http://www.noip.com so that I could use a FQDN, e.g. myvpnserver.ddns.net - this was used during the PIVPN install

- Assigned port on my SKY router, e.g. UDP port 1194 points to my local PI server, e.g.
- copied .OPVN file onto my Android phone and attempted connection..

Thank you, regards Arif..
