Firewall/OpenVPN Issue

I successfully configured my R6900 to allow VPN traffic, and port forwarded to my desktop.

 

But, much to my surprise and despite the supposed OpenVPN protection, some unathorized person (185.176.27.186) appeared to gain access to my desktop.  I didn't expected for my telecom router to block this traffic, but I did expect my Netgear router to block it.  Am I missing something?

 

My telecom router's log file:

infoJul 21 15:35:55

IN=br1 MAC=94:c1:50:a3:82:90 src=185.176.27.186 DST=XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX LEN=40 TTL=242 PROTO=TCP DPT=54321 Accessing Pinhole

My Netgear router's log file:

[LAN access from remote] from 185.176.27.186:54586 to 192.168.1.2:3389, Sunday, Jul 21,2019 15:35:53

Yes, remote management is disabled and has never been allowed.

Re: Firewall/OpenVPN Issue

For clarification purposes, UPnP was disabled in the telecom router, but was enabled in the NetGear router.  I have since disabled it in the NetGear router, too.

 

Does the following Netgear log record indicate that they got passed the VPN protection?

[LAN access from remote] from 185.176.27.186:54586 to 192.168.1.2:3389, Sunday, Jul 21,2019 15:35:53
