Whats the source port range for the openvpn client traffic?

Post by nhoot » Thu Jun 30, 2011 7:05 pm

Have a server and client setup succsessfully, and port 1194 is opened on the receiving end, but the source port on incoming packets is not consistent and seems to be in the 3870-3890 range.
We filter incoming external traffic based on source AND destination.

I havent been able to find any documentation for openvpn using those ports. Where are they specified?
If they arent specified anywhere, does anyone know what the range is?

Thanks.

hi there,

if you remove nobind statement from client config it will try to use 1194.

also there is lport statement,try it.
