The NAS functionality of the router is available on the LAN side, so as long as you can get a response from your router's LAN side - i.e. 192.168.x.x - you should be able to access the NAS device.

[Google] DNS over TLS support in Android P Developer Preview

The first step of almost every connection on the internet is a DNS query. A client, such as a smartphone, typically uses a DNS server provided by the Wi-Fi or cellular network.

They may be blocking UDP traffic on port 443, since in reality the only application using port 443 will be a browser and browsers don't generate UDP traffic, they generate TCP traffic.

Re: [Help] Debian 9 OpenVPN Network Manager: Cryptostorm randomly disconnects!

@OP Many thanks for the replies. Just out of interest, what device are you using? Desktop PC or laptop? Wired or wireless? As to your additional questions: 1. I don't know where the server is located. You'd have to ask df . 2. As far as I am aware, Spink is not affiliated with Cryptostorm but again...

Re: --remote-cert-tls file that is not configged for Windows

@OP Use this config file for using the Cryptofree service on Linux-based systems. I also notice from your log output that you are getting AUTH_FAILED . I'm not sure why you are getting this with the Cryptofree service since it doesn't require a paid token, however you still need to provide a userna...

Re: [Help] Debian 9 OpenVPN Network Manager: Cryptostorm randomly disconnects!

@OP 1 . I might have this wrong but this is what I remember. There was a time when an un-hashed token was rejected for security/correlation reasons. After a review, it was determined that accepting un-hashed tokens was much less of a security risk than it first appeared to be. The server-side authe...

Re: [Help] Debian 9 OpenVPN Network Manager: Cryptostorm randomly disconnects!

@OP

Do the logs say something like "inactivity timeout"? Could you post some log output here?

Re: Cryptostorm, OpenWRT, Dynamic DNS (DDNS), OpenVPN

@OP The entire point of DNS is to provide a consistent point of contact for a network service - e.g "www.google.com" - regardless of its IP address. Dynamic DNS is exactly that - it dynamically updates the IP address of a given DNS entry when that IP address changes, common with residenti...

Re: HOWTO: OpenWRT Routers

@FoodMaven

The username is the hashed token, as you correctly surmised. The password can be anything (since the operational model doesn't rely on it to grant access) but it must be something - whether it's a single character or a stream of random characters, it doesn't matter either way.

@df

Yeah it works. My cut & paste from a token PDF included an extra character - a carriage return. Didn't realise until I pasted it into a text editor to check it. :p

Re: New token reseller -> okaruto.space

@OP Good to see there's an independent reseller again! :D I took a look at your site and I like what I see: a good selection of crypto coins (any chance of supporting Verge (XVG) ?) and an onion site too (a bit slow that one, but that might be Tor). I would like to place you on the resellers page a...

Re: Another $50 router blown up.

@OP I think it's important for you to realise that many of the guides on this forum come from community members, not from staff. The vast majority of VPN users - regardless of provider - initiate their VPN connection from their PC not from their router, hence the need for software such as Network M...

I've just tested it and it's still broken. Also, the textual hint in the token field doesn't disappear when you click into it.
