I recently purchased an Orbi kit and having OpenVPN on the router is handy (this was on my old router too, so keeping it on there makes it simpler), however...
I have own custom Dynamic DNS configuration setup with my personal domain, and therefore I have no need to enable the Dynamic DNS services on the Orbi. If I don't enable the Dynamic DNS on the Orbi, I'm unable to enable OpenVPN.
I understand this might be the recommended setting, but I have no need and don't want to use public Dynamic DNS services.
Can this be modified so OpenVPN can be enabled without requiring Dynamic DNS?

Here is the article with the recommended way to use Open vpn.

Exact same problem here. I already have an account with Dyn.com, and the updater is running on one of my computers already. (And the updater for Dyn.com isn't working, as somebody else has already noted in this forum.)
The wording of the popup dialog when enabling OpenVPN makes it sound like it's just a reminder ("please make sure you will do this"), but apparently that's just a poorly phrased error message.
Can the firmware be fixed, or do we need to just replace this with some wwdrt variant when it comes out if we want openvpn support?
