I just purchased a GL-MT1300 and I plan to use it as both a regular simple router (WAN wired connection to a cable modem, etc and WiFi to clients) as well as a OpenVPN client.
I have configured the OpenVPN Client under the ‘VPN’ tab and when I click the ‘Enable’ button, I can confirm that it does connect to my VPN server at the far end. The problem is that under the ‘System’ tab, I have configured the ‘Toggle Button Settings’ for 'OpenVPN Client (On/Off), but when I power off the router, slide the physical toggle button to the left, then power on the router, it does not automatically connect to the VPN. However, if I go into the VPN tab and click ‘Enable’, it does connect.
So just to recap, here is what I’m looking for:
- With the router powered off and the physical VPN toggle button to the Right (the OFF position), if I power on, it is just a regular old access point with WiFi to surf the net to the clients [this works].
- Then, if the router is powered off, I slide the physical VPN toggle button to the Left (the ON position), then when the router is powered back up, it will connect to the the OpenVPN server at the far end [this does ‘not’ work].
Thanks in advance!
