Cannot connect to VPN on R8500 using OpenVPN

I am using the default settings:

client
dev tap
proto udp
sndbuf 393216
rcvbuf 393216
push "sndbuf 393216"
push "rcvbuf 393216"
dev-node NETGEAR-VPN
remote <URL> 12974                *URL removed for security
resolv-retry infinite
nobind
persist-key
persist-tun
ca ca.crt
cert client.crt
key client.key
cipher AES-128-CBC
comp-lzo
verb 0

 

I am trying to connect directly to the router to remove the dependancy for RDP passthrough.

Welcome to the community, @DOTCOM79

 

Do you have the latest firmware installed on the router?

Did you try to factory reset the router?
