Thanks for the quick reply. I’m an end user not a network guy so I’m just feeling my way through this thing.
What I’m trying to do is access security cameras at a remote site where the only internet available is cellular. I’ve had a Verizon 3G modem with a public IP address for years that used to work perfectly but Verizon has been shutting down its 3G towers and now the internet connection is spotty at best.
4G Verizon only gives you a private IP address unless you pay $500 for a static address so I’m trying to set up a tunnel from the remote location to a cloud openVPN server so that I can then connect to the remote location through the OpenVPN server from either my phone or computer from anywhere using the OpenVPN client application. I don’t want to buy and carry around extra gear to set up a tunnel directly between the remote location and myself.
From what I read I think what I’m trying to do should be possible but I can’t get it to work. Do you know if I’m trying to do something that is not actually possible?
Anyway, as far as your queries go these are what I’ve got:
I can ping from the 4G Pepwave (remote site) to my computer …224.2 to …224.3 but not the other way around.
I left the Dynamic IP assignment settings at the default values in the OpenVPN configuration. As far as I understand it it shouldn’t even matter since I set up static IP addresses for the 2 OpenVPN clients.
Like I said I’m not a network guy but here I thought I was configuring it so those 2 subnets (Pepwave and Computer) could communicate with each other. I will try deleting the subnets from those settings.
Let me know if you think what I’m trying to do is possible and if you have any suggestions on how I should tweak the settings either on the OpenVPN server or on the Pepwave.
