Connection Timeout

I've setup an old Windows Vista PC as an OpenVPN server but I can't connect to it via OpenVPN Connect as the connection timeouts. On the Windows Vista PC itself I can see that OpenVPN GUI has the little green lights in the icon, so I think that means its working.

Has anybody else come across this before or know why I would be having a connection timeout?

This is kind of solved (I have another issue) now but I'm not sure how to delete my topic?

My new issue is that OpenVPN connect on my iPhone was connecting to the OpenVPN server but whenever I would visit whatsmyip it would should my mobile data provider IP and not my VPN home networked IP address. I added the line redirect-gateway def1 in the client profile and push “redirect-gateway def1” in the server config file, but this has stopped the internet from working completely on the client.

Does anyone know how to solve this issue?
