External OVPN Problems

Sun Jan 10, 2021 5:16 am

Hello, I've purchased a MikroTik hEX S Gigabit Ethernet Router with SFP Port (RB760iGS) for my home network and I'm using it as my router/firewall. This device has worked great until I recently found out that I have problems with connecting to a remote OpenVPN server that is using ipsec. I can connect to the remotely openvpn server but I can't connect to the Windows server using RDP. I also can not access the idrac remotely. Furthermore, I've noticed that the openvpn connection seems to disconnect and reconnect. I went thru and read some threads using the search function but I haven't come across anyone with a similar problem to my own. I know my issue is related to either a firewall filter or nat rule. I verified that it is an issue with my microtik device using and successfully connecting from a different location to my remote server with no problems. I'm completely new to routeros so I'm not sure how to resolve this issue. I even went and reset the device and regenerated a new set of firewall rules and still have the same issues. I will attach screenshots of my current config. I attempted to use torch under the tools section and I can see the port 1194 being utilized but I'm not sure what I'm missing. I even went back and tried a couple of different rules as you can see which are probably wrong.

I currently have nothing but the dummy rules listed under the mangled section as I do not know what that section is used for.

OpenVPN does not use IPsec. Screenshots are not particularly helpful, they usually don't display everything. Execute /export hide-sensitive in a terminal window, post the output in a code block (the [] icon on the toolbar when posting in the forum) after redacting any public IP addresses.
