Hi KWJ06,

 

Most likely there will be no upcoming firmware for R7500 as it is already an EoL product.

Re: Open VPNclient cannot connect to VPN server at wifi router R7500

Hello - I am receiving the exact same error message as the OP when attempting to connect via Tunnelblick (v 3.6.6) on Mac OS X 10.11.

 

TCP/UDP: Incoming packet rejected from [AF_INET]192.168.1.1:12974[2], expected peer address: [AF_INET]172.72.221.159:12974 (allow this incoming source address/port by removing --remote or adding --float)

 

Your fix mentioned above only applies to windows setups. I am able to succesfully connect a windows client to the VPN server running on the router.

 

Do you have any suggestions for how to address the above error and connect from a Mac client? Is the suggested fix in the error text (allow this incoming source address/port by removing --remote or adding --float) indicating a server or client settings change?

 

Thanks for the help. let me know if I shoud start a new thread.
