That's good.

 

Got any tips you'd like to share with anyone who might be in the same boat?

 

VPN questions come up here regularly. Any insights could be a great help.

What for and why? No new router product requires a new dedicated [My]Netgear account.

Great. Thanks for that.

 

It is surprising how many people miss that. My guess is that Netgear explains it badly.

Complete nonsense - there is no [My]Netgear Account involved with the OpenVPN configuration. Even the DDNS (for name -> IPv4 address) does not run on the [My]Netgear account.

Calm down. Stop acting like you know everything. And then investigate what ordinary people need to do to get things to work.

 

mynetgear.com is involved in many things, although not, as some insist, access to this place, but it is now a growing part of the "remote" repertoire. If @Freebird317 used it to get in, good for them.

I find it hilarious that someone who excoriates Netgear for its failure to keep documentation up to date throws that one into the mix.

 

Now go and pester the poor @netgear souls who have to put up with your constant nagging.

 

Let's just help the punters, without trying to baffle them to death.

You marked something as a solution of what is completely irrelevant. Its not asked to much where users find certain misleading information - I'm happy to bring it to Netgear's attention. This does not help the community and future readers.

 

@michaelkenward  I don't care  Facts are facts.
