OpenVPN and IPVanish together


OpenVPN and IPVanish together

Hi all,


Quick info about me : I am not a networking expert but have a fair level of understanding.


I am using IPVanish as the VPN provider for all traffic I generate from my home computer. Now I also want to be able to RDP into this computer from anywher in the world for which I have set up port forwading on Nighthawk R7000. My R7000 is behind the ISP's router so I chained the port forwarding on that router as well and I am able to RDP seuccessfully externally. I have learnt that portforwarding is not the most secure approach in termsof traffic intercepting and a dedicated VPN to my home router would be better approach. I therefore wanted to set up that VPN using Nighthawk R7000. I am not sure if I can have two VPNs working simultaneously where the RDP traffic goes through nighthawaks openVPN but all the internet traffic generated by the RDPed computer goes via IP vanish. If yes how can i do that?

Model: R7000|Nighthawk AC1900 Dual Band WiFi Router

Re: OpenVPN and IPVanish together

if VPN works you will have to access RDP through local IP not public IP. 


i believe OpenVPN of R7000 will only work with specific OpenVPN software.
