WAN cable connected to my Internet router - LAN side
LAN cable connected to my TV
1 OpenVPN Client configured and work correctly when active
Button Setting to Enable / Disable OpenVPN
Well, I would like, if it’s possibile, to know how to permit LAN cable (TV) to “see” the entire WAN network, because in my case is not Internet, but my private local network, in wich i have DLNA server. With above configuration, TV can’t see DLNA server on my private network, even with OpenVPN closed.
Any suggestion ?
Now I resetting to factory settings the device and I try to configure it without VPN client, to avoid “interference”.
In Advanced Settings, I added the “Traffic Rule” from WAN to LAN, from DLNA Server IP: but TV can’t reveal it.
I also tried to added the “Traffic Rule” from WAN to LAN from ALL WAN: but TV can’t reveal DLNA server.
Of course if I connect TV cable directly to ISP router, it reveal DLNA server without issue.
When I solve this situation, I can try to add VPN Client.
At the beginning, seems you are making a correct setup. The router should work in Router mode. It will route all traffic. But in that way, it creates a subnet.
By using vpn policy, you can enable your TV to access your local network, but not be able to enable your local network devices see your tv, because it is behind firewall and in another subnet.
I saw that you are putting WAN in LAN mode, which the router will not work in Router mode. In this way, your two Ethernet ports will be bridged together. All your devices on MT300N-V2 will get IP from your main network. But in this way, your vpn will not work.
So you cannot use VPN and want to access local network easily. Even you have advanced skills, it does not worth the effort to do it. So just let the router works in its own way unless you want some DIY skills.
Ok Alzhao, thanks a lot for the precise explanation.
Now, I understand that with VPN activated, my “real” local network connected on the WAN side of the device does not “see” the LAN side of the device itself;
but, if I turn off the VPN is it possible to make them “see” each other ?
I understand you. But you cannot easily change from one state to another. Although it could be done by writing some scripts and use the switch button to switch between the two state, but I don’t think it worth the effort. Too much work.
