Hello,

 

I have just setup a OpenVPN server on a linux machine. I noticed that I cant access the server from outside using any port other than 443. This leads me to believe they (Spark) block all ports except 80 and 443? I looked through my firewall settings and config I just cant find anything that would stop port 1194 from working on my site.

 

I have it working for now but would like to use port 1194.

 

Anyone had similar experiences?

Spark don't block any ports except 25 as far as I am aware.

The ports Spark block are listed here https://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=39&topicid=250712&page_no=1#2243183

 

You can request an unblock of those ports here https://www.spark.co.nz/help/get-more/xtra/port-25/

You still need to port forward so the traffic knows where to go.

Thanks. It must be a router issue.

 

I'm doing things a bit non standard. I have a Cisco ASA5505 doing PPPoE and all the router functionality. 

 

As far as I am aware NAT is setup correctly, have setup a access-list for udp 1194 and setup a static route to server. Needs a bit of investigation on my side.

Sounds to me like it's your setup.

All works fine here.

My bad. Found I put the wrong port number for the access-list.

 

 

 

If anyone interested in using a ASA5505 or similar for a router I used the following config.

 

 

 

For PPPoE:

 

vpdn group spark_fibre request dialout pppoe
vpdn group spark_fibre localname user@spark.co.nz
vpdn group spark_fibre ppp authentication pap
vpdn username user@spark.co.nz password randompassword
dhcpd auto_config outside

 

interface Vlan1
 nameif inside
 security-level 100
 ip address 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0

interface Vlan10
 nameif outside
 security-level 0
 pppoe client vpdn group spark_fibre
 ip address pppoe setroute

 

interface Ethernet0/0
 switchport access vlan 10
 switchport trunk allowed vlan 10
 switchport mode trunk

 

global (outside) 1 interface
nat (inside) 1 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0

 

DHCP:

 

dhcpd address 192.168.1.20-192.168.1.110 inside
dhcpd dns 8.8.8.8 interface inside
dhcpd enable inside

 

 

 

To allow a port to internal server etc: eg ssh

 

access-list external extended permit tcp any interface outside eq ssh

 

static (inside,outside) tcp interface ssh 192.168.1.69 ssh netmask 255.255.255.255

 

 

 

The ASA needs Security Plus Licence and unlimited inside hosts if you using it as dhcp server and got lots of devices around the house.
