    Have you tried a different port than 1194? I have seen some routers that reserve that port for themselves.

    Tried twice more with 2 more random Ports (30255 and 30401) same results.

    Does both of your links (WAN) have public IP address?

    Yes they do, but I have tried physically disconnecting one WAN and ensuring the IP address of the other is the same as the one used by Firewalla VPN Server

    Still not working.

    Did you check the TPLink documentation? I found this pretty quick on the web, seems there is a step to define service type ... or something https://www.tp-link.com/us/support/faq/2026/

    Thanks.

    I have looked at this document before. But it's for TL-ER6020 v2 and they have clearly changed how things are done from the V1

    I have a query out to TP-Link but nothing back so far. I can't believe port forwarding is that complex on this router.

    One thing I did notice and I have no idea if this might be the cause ( I am out of my depth already). Maybe you can tell me. It looks as if neither of my service providers has set up my WANs as pass-through (See picture below, which is typical Thailand), Although everything else works just fine) The WAN IP address I have been using has remained unchanged since I started trying to fix this. Could this be causing the issues!

    The problem of your connection is, your ISP is NOT giving you public ipv4 addresses. (you have all 192.168.x.x). You will need to call them up and ask them for a public IP
