OpenVPN Port Forwarding

Having some trouble with port forwarding for OpenVPN. I am running an OpenVPN server on a Pi on my home network. I want to be able to reach this from an external connection. Server is running, port is listening on the device. I have setup port forwarding on the router for the correct port as a new profile and assigned it to the device according to the MAC address.


When I try a port forwarding checking tool online it shows as closed.

Re: OpenVPN Port Forwarding

Just a thought - do you have Plusnet's own firewall turned off - or set to allow the port through to your router?
