OpenVPN client and 1:1 NAT

+1 vote
I have a WR11XT that has a private external IP address. I need external IP packets reaching the WR11XT to be forwarded to a client on the LAN

My plan is to configuring the WR11XT as an OpenVPN client with the following:
LAN 192.168.2.0
WR11XT LAN address 192.168.2.1
Client LAN address 192.168.2.2

If the WR11XT OpenVPN client gets a VPN address of 10.8.1.1 will it forward incoming packets for 10.8.1.2 to 192.168.2.2 using 1:1 NAT?

If not, is there some other way to accomplish this with a private external IP address on the WR11XT?

Thanks

Hi and welcome to Digi forum!

On WR11 router you can configure the OpeVPN interface to do NAT for IP address and Port (https://www.digi.com/resources/documentation/digidocs/90001019/default.htm#tasks/t_configure_open_vpn_parameters.htm%3FTocPath%3DConfiguring%2520Virtual%2520Private%2520Networking%2520(VPN)%2520%7C_____4).

This plus the NAT rule configured should do the job.

I would suggest you to try this out and if you have issues please send an email to tech.support@digi.com with IMEI of the router and also please review our support options on our website: https://www.digi.com/support.
