I set up an OpenVpn Server on DigitalOcean as per https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-an-openvpn-server-on-ubuntu-16-04
(NB: the Vpn didn't work, so I used the script linked in the first comment instead)
Then I set up an OpenVpn Client on my router as per
I verified my client public IP-Address has changed.
The router is using my VpnServer Ip so the tunnel seems to work.
But still cannot connect to my DVR to check security cams.
It is not clear to me how the whole stuff should work.
When I'm in my LAN I just point to the dvr ip:port
I thought connecting the router and my mobile phone to the same VPN could make the devices think to be in the same LAN
Am I missing something?
