I have just tried OpenVpn in Syncloud and it runs fine but I was (just) looking for a VPN client . Then I have read this document and I have understood that it operates as a VPN server: you generate an ovpn certificate for other devices to make your Syncloud machine be the “entry point” to the web. I find it very fascinating but I am looking for a VPN client.
So…being that I own a subrscription to ExpressVpn I have installed (
dpkg -i) and activated it successfully: I was able to reach different servers, switch it on/off, etc… Obviously the machine immediately becomes unreachable from outside because it enter the Web from a private server instead of my home router.
I have 2 questions:
- Can you confirm that any active VPN client on Syncloud will ever prevent it from being reachable from outside and so you will always need to switch the VPN off before leaving home?
- After the removal of ExpressVpn (
dpkg -r) my Syncloud still remained unreachable from outside also after a reboot so I have restored a recent image to make it run again correctly. What could have been “broken” by this experiment in your opinion?
Thanks a lot
