I’ve got an MT300N V2 that I want to use as a VPN server appliance behind my ISP router. I will port forward the OpenVPN port to the appliance. There is no need for wireless, and I can hook up the appliance to the ISP modem via ethernet. The only part of the MT300N I’m interested in at the moment is the VPN server. I just want to be able to login from outside my network to the MT300N and access my LAN from there.
I’m having trouble figuring out all the settings required. If I configure it as a router and hook up both the LAN and WAN port to my modem, I can access it and it appears to have access to the internet. But it’s flakey and keeps ignoring clicks on the web interface or spontaneously restarting my web connection. If I try it in bridge mode the ethernet connections both disappear from my ISP modem and I can’t connect to it.
Has anyone else done this before, and would you suggest a starting config?
