  1. I tried setting my PC as a console and as a computer. Both yield the same results. Have not tried only VPN specific services. When I dug into the ports used by D2 it was a pretty long list. Though maybe there are only a handful of key ports.
  2. Just to provide some additional information about the whole test procedure. I found the OpenVPN Client Connect to a very unpolished and muddled experience. It has the most minimal UI a developer could have put into it. On the other hand, the OpenVPN GUI found in their community downloads is a slick implementation. It supports the config folder to load up pre configured connections and the app has enough UI to make the user experience stream lined. Using OpenVPN GUI, I was able to establish a connection from windows 10 and determine that the results were different from what the XR500 was providing. RESULTS Device - VPN Client - Open VPN Config - VPN Scope - NAT State XR500 - Hybrid VPN - Vypr 256 Open VPN config - Entire device VPN'd - Destiny 2 Moderate NAT Windows 10 PC - OpenVPN GUI Client - Vypr 256 Open VPN config - Entire device VPN'd - Destiny 2 Open NAT Windows 10 PC - Vypr VPN Client - Vypr 256 Open VPN config - Entire device VPN'd - Destiny 2 Open NAT Each test I confirmed that the device was VPN'd by using: https://www.iplocation.net/find-ip-address
  3. Thanks! I appreciate you guys being willing to take a look. Would really love to be able to use the Hybrid VPN feature in my particular use case.
  4. Just want to make sure you are understanding where the setting is located. It is not in the client software or open vpn config, it is on their website portal. Since the effect of the setting works in the generic open vpn software I am thinking that the Duma OS on the xr500 is altering things somehow.
  5. Alright, so the link you gave me for Open VPN connect was something that I could not get working. I found this link: https://openvpn.net/community-downloads/ for their community version and I was able to connect immediately using OpenVPN GUI. Results: Destiny 2 does report having an open nat after connecting to Vypr VPN using the OpenVPN GUI Client.
  6. Well, I still haven't been able to test the Open VPN client to confirm this.
  7. Found this article from Vypr, bu tthey refer to a config folder that doesn't exist. https://support.goldenfrog.com/hc/en-us/articles/360004606172-VyprVPN-OpenVPN-GUI-Setup-for-Windows-10
  8. Well I tried to use the OpenVPN Connect client and could not get past the error: Missing External PKI Alias. Spent sometime trying to resolve but no joy. Seems to be a common issue people are having but there was no clear resolution that I could find. Will try again later, and if you are anyone on the this forum knows how to resolve I would like to know.
  9. The response I got from Vypr is that the open vpn configuration used in the windows client is exactly the same as that used in the vpn router config files. I know the Duma OS is just implementing open vpn protocols so if anyone has ideas as to why I seeing different behavior on xr500 vs the windows client I'd like to hear them.
  10. I've emailed Vypr's support as well to see if these open vpn configs are setup differently that their windows client. Here is the open vpn config that I am using. client dev tun proto udp remote us6.vyprvpn.com 443 resolv-retry infinite nobind persist-key persist-tun persist-remote-ip verify-x509-name us6.vyprvpn.com name auth-user-pass comp-lzo keepalive 10 60 verb 3 auth SHA256 cipher AES-256-CBC tls-cipher TLS-DHE-RSA-WITH-AES-256-CBC-SHA <ca> -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----redacted-----END CERTIFICATE----- </ca>
  11. No, the open NAT feature is a setting on their website to control how incoming VPN connections are handled. When I use the windows client it works correctly, and doesn't work when connecting from the Hybrid VPN.
  12. I've been doing some experimenting with Hybrid VPN using Vypr VPN. For those that don't know you can disable the NAT on vyprs service so you can play D2 with an open NAT. When I use the windows client Destiny 2 reports that I have an open nat. When I configure Duma OS on the XR500 to use Hybrid VPN and add my PC (defined as a xbox) I get a moderate NAT. I've also tried defining my pc as a computer and adding the service "Game Consoles" to the list of services to VPN. Curious what I can do on the Hybrid VPN settings page to try and get the same results from the windows client. The XR500 is doing a great job of off loading the VPNs CPU load from my PC, just wish I could achieve an open NAT using hybrid vpn.
  13. As an update, the number of "Baboon" errors we were receiving has dropped to zero. No longer need to use a VPN connection. I'm thinking that the issue was on their end, unless you've made changes to the Destiny 2 settings used by the router.
  14. I don't use the geofilter for finding games on PC. It did try it out a long time ago and it did appear to mostly work.
  15. Thanks! Though I have some updates. Here is what I've had to do, as last night the errors were preventing my wife from gaming. In order to stabilize the game I fired up a VPN connection. After that the game had zero issues. Though I still find it odd that the game was fine prior to Oct 1 when the game was on Battle.net. Now that it is on Steam... seems to me that something has changed.
  16. No, nothing appeared to be blocked. What does happen, is during an activity you may get an error code "baboon". There may be more info there.
  17. The message would appear randomly across the bottom of the screen. "Unable to contact Destiny 2 Servers...." It was occurring constantly yesterday. Today is hasn't happened as much. There is a chance the issues isn't with any settings on the router. Just trying to provide as much info as possible.
  18. Hello, Just wanted to ask if the settings for Destiny 2 have been reviewed? The game recently moved to Steam on October 1st. I'm getting messages in game that it is having trouble contacting their servers. I haven't changes anything since it was on Battle.net. ACanadian
  19. That is what I am going to do. Get a different router and put the XR500 on the shelf. Like you and many others we read on this forum but never write. Hoping, on the day we read that we see milestone 1.4 ready to be installed. There has to be so much more going on that these kind folks are not talking about. To the support staff, the ones who reply on this forum, you are warriors and I commend you for your effort. To the management and owners of Netduma, you've got to do better. My guess is that you are frustrated by the situation as well and you wanting to make changes but cannot due to contractual reasons. Hopefully you've learnt from past mistakes and have the opportunity to wright the ship in the future. As of right now, I'm out.
  20. Guys I've read all the reasons, and everyday I hover my mouse over the buy button for a different router. I don't want to, I want this one to be amazing!
  21. Thanks for the info. I prefer to not run the Nat filtering in less secure mode. On xbox you can actually assign the port to use for live services so that you can port forward with confidence.
  22. Same answer as above. One device is open nat with upnp, the second moderate.
  23. I agree that using UPNP is the easiest. It just seems that the XR500 isn't great at UPNP. Hopefully this will be improved in 1.4
  24. If you figure out how to get an open nat with two devices playing the same game on the same lan, I'd be interested to know how.
