Hi Frank


One tip I have learned is the local IP subnet on each end cannot be the same. For example, if your home network uses 192.168.1.x then the remote local network cannot be the same.

I have set my home network to use 10.4.0.x so I do not run into problems with any remote networks.

Make sure you have these ports open on any firewalls involved:

TCP 4992
UDP 4991 and 4992

Then check your firewall and AV software to see if it is blocking the ports. You may need to make an exception for SmartSDR.

The VPN server or client or both may have a firewall that can block ports.
