Port forwarding with OVPN
One of the greatest benefits with OVPN is that it allows port forwarding when connected. By forwarding a port, you can, for example, run a web server on your device even though that device is connected to OVPN.
How can I open a port?
On the bottom of the page, you will find:
When opening a port, you can decide if it’s going to be a TCP, UDP or a port with both TCP & UDP.
The port number will be in the range of 49152–65534 as we follow RFC6335 guidelines regarding assigned port numbers.
Re-connect after the port has been opened
After opening a port from the dashboard, you will need to re-connect to OVPN in order for the port to work properly. If you don’t re-connect, the port forwarding you’ve setup won’t work.
How many ports can I open?
Currently, we limit the amount of open ports to seven. The limit might increase or decrease in the future depending on the demand from our customers.
