Inconsistent port configuration

Post by gcompari » Mon Oct 09, 2017 1:03 am

I though that the port configured in the VPN Client would be one of the port of the VPN Server listener: my VPN Server works with any port configured on the VPN Client, also if the port is inexistent in the VPN Server. If I "stop" all listening ports of the VPN Server, in any case my VPN Client can connect the VPN Server: how is it possible that?

For me this is a problem because I can't understand how VPN SoftEther works: I have an installation that doesn't work (Error code 1) and I can't isolate the problem. I opened all listening ports (443, 992, 1194, 5555) on the (VPN Server side) router, but still nothing works...

Can someone tell me how the listening process work?

Thanks in advance for any help.

NAT-T uses UDP port which the VPN server open automatically.
