OpenVPN Cloud configuration questions

Post by markdewet » Tue May 24, 2022 2:48 pm

Hi all,
firstly, please forgive the multiple questions on OpenVPN, I am 60, very new to any VPN setup and trying hard to learn. I have a basic knowledge of how VPN works, however, some things have confused me a little, so please try to be patient with me.
So, I have setup an account with OpenVPN, configured a network for all internet access (this seems to be working correctly, if I do a tracert I see the OpenVPN IP address in step 2) and downloaded and installed the client on Windows 10 and am currently connected.
Questions are as follows:
1: Why does my original external IP address (the one assigned by my ISP) still show up when I go to whatismyp websites? I have configured the network with Internet Gateway (Egress) ON
2: How do I configure the users/groups to use the network I have created? Currently it shows the network as connected but the user (me) and my device (my PC) as disconnected.
Thanking you in anticipation.

I cannot believe that in 18 days, no-one is able (or willing) to answer my query. Have I written my query incorrectly, I am asking too many questions in one or am I asking questions that are impossible to resolve?

No idea and nothing to do with OpenVPN.

The IP address provided by OpenVPN, obviously

It actually has everything to do with OpenVPN, I am asking about the users and groups created on the OpenVPN Cloud dashboard/console.

Do you mean the client VPN IP address, example: 10.8.0.6 ?

@TinCanTech,
Not to worry, thank you, I have deleted my account at OpenVPN Cloud and will investigate other options. Have great day further.
