    Is it possible to edit the openVPN server config file on the firewalla?  The way the automatic openVPN is setup by default on the gold doesn't allow the connected clients access to any of the devices on the remote LAN and so things like file and printer sharing are unusable. The server just acts like a privacy vpn for browsing the web.

    I got problems setting up openvpn server on a gold firewalla in router mode. I enabled upnp, then setup openvpn server and it says that i have to manually open the port, which is weird 'cause i expect upnp on the same very device do its job. But it's ok, i try manually open the port, so i go in the nat section, try to manually open the port but of course i can't select the target device, 'cause it's the firewalla itself... Any advice?

    I'd also like  to know this. It's  weird - if I connect from my phone to the firewalla,  I can connect to all clients attached the the firewalla.

    If I connect from my Asus router to the firewalla, I can't connect to ANY clients attached to the firewall - even from an ssh session on the router.

    @radagast82, if you are running a gold in router mode, and it is your primary router, you do not need UPnP ... If the Gold is your only router (you don't have double NAT), then check this https://help.firewalla.com/hc/en-us/articles/360055686674-How-to-see-if-you-have-a-public-IP-address-

    Is there any way to get a ".UDP" configuration file versus a ".OVPN" configuration file.  Trying to use the builtin VPN client on a MIFI Hotspot and found out that they only support configuration files that are formatted as ".UDP".  I have yet to see a way to convert a ".OVPN" to a ".UDP"  If NordVPN can do it, Firewalla should be able to.  (Full discussion on this topic here https://community.verizon.com/t5/Hotspots/Verizon-MiFi-Jetpack-8800L-won-t-connect-or-accept-my-VPN/td-p/1150443/page/3)

    You're right, my new isp provides public ip on demand, I just asked them for one... I thought it was by default
