  1. Thanks Fraser. This has now worked. I previously followed instructions to download Open VPN tool from the NordVPN site to get the config but this way is much better. Also it appears you are typing in magic "white" ink as i didn't realise you had provided extra text until i quoted you and it highlighted "NordVPN" "XR500" and "VPN" as having a spelling mistake
  2. Ive recently signed up to NordVPN. Ive got the OPENVPN config file (below) and added it into Advanced tab a long with my NordVPN username and password. The status goes to connecting and then straight to failed. When checking in Logs, they are empty. Not sure what i am doing wrong and why its not showing anything in logs. client dev tun proto udp remote 1194 resolv-retry infinite remote-random nobind tun-mtu 1500 tun-mtu-extra 32 mssfix 1450 persist-key persist-tun ping 15 ping-restart 0 ping-timer-rem reneg-sec 0 comp-lzo no block-outside-dns remote-cert-tls server auth-user-pass verb 3 pull fast-io cipher AES-256-CBC auth SHA512 <ca> -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE----- MIIFCjCCAvKgAwIBAgIBATANBgkqhkiG9w0BAQ0FADA5MQswCQYDVQQGEwJQQTEQ MA4GA1UEChMHTm9yZFZQTjEYMBYGA1UEAxMPTm9yZFZQTiBSb290IENBMB4XDTE2 MDEwMTAwMDAwMFoXDTM1MTIzMTIzNTk1OVowOTELMAkGA1UEBhMCUEExEDAOBgNV BAoTB05vcmRWUE4xGDAWBgNVBAMTD05vcmRWUE4gUm9vdCBDQTCCAiIwDQYJKoZI hvcNAQEBBQADggIPADCCAgoCggIBAMkr/BYhyo0F2upsIMXwC6QvkZps3NN2/eQF kfQIS1gql0aejsKsEnmY0Kaon8uZCTXPsRH1gQNgg5D2gixdd1mJUvV3dE3y9FJr XMoDkXdCGBodvKJyU6lcfEVF6/UxHcbBguZK9UtRHS9eJYm3rpL/5huQMCppX7kU eQ8dpCwd3iKITqwd1ZudDqsWaU0vqzC2H55IyaZ/5/TnCk31Q1UP6BksbbuRcwOV skEDsm6YoWDnn/IIzGOYnFJRzQH5jTz3j1QBvRIuQuBuvUkfhx1FEwhwZigrcxXu MP+QgM54kezgziJUaZcOM2zF3lvrwMvXDMfNeIoJABv9ljw969xQ8czQCU5lMVmA 37ltv5Ec9U5hZuwk/9QO1Z+d/r6Jx0mlurS8gnCAKJgwa3kyZw6e4FZ8mYL4vpRR hPdvRTWCMJkeB4yBHyhxUmTRgJHm6YR3D6hcFAc9cQcTEl/I60tMdz33G6m0O42s Qt/+AR3YCY/RusWVBJB/qNS94EtNtj8iaebCQW1jHAhvGmFILVR9lzD0EzWKHkvy WEjmUVRgCDd6Ne3eFRNS73gdv/C3l5boYySeu4exkEYVxVRn8DhCxs0MnkMHWFK6 MyzXCCn+JnWFDYPfDKHvpff/kLDobtPBf+Lbch5wQy9quY27xaj0XwLyjOltpiST LWae/Q4vAgMBAAGjHTAbMAwGA1UdEwQFMAMBAf8wCwYDVR0PBAQDAgEGMA0GCSqG SIb3DQEBDQUAA4ICAQC9fUL2sZPxIN2mD32VeNySTgZlCEdVmlq471o/bDMP4B8g nQesFRtXY2ZCjs50Jm73B2LViL9qlREmI6vE5IC8IsRBJSV4ce1WYxyXro5rmVg/ k6a10rlsbK/eg//GHoJxDdXDOokLUSnxt7gk3QKpX6eCdh67p0PuWm/7WUJQxH2S DxsT9vB/iZriTIEe/ILoOQF0Aqp7AgNCcLcLAmbxXQkXYCCSB35Vp06u+eTWjG0/ pyS5V14stGtw+fA0DJp5ZJV4eqJ5LqxMlYvEZ/qKTEdoCeaXv2QEmN6dVqjDoTAo k0t5u4YRXzEVCfXAC3ocplNdtCA72wjFJcSbfif4BSC8bDACTXtnPC7nD0VndZLp +RiNLeiENhk0oTC+UVdSc+n2nJOzkCK0vYu0Ads4JGIB7g8IB3z2t9ICmsWrgnhd NdcOe15BincrGA8avQ1cWXsfIKEjbrnEuEk9b5jel6NfHtPKoHc9mDpRdNPISeVa wDBM1mJChneHt59Nh8Gah74+TM1jBsw4fhJPvoc7Atcg740JErb904mZfkIEmojC VPhBHVQ9LHBAdM8qFI2kRK0IynOmAZhexlP/aT/kpEsEPyaZQlnBn3An1CRz8h0S PApL8PytggYKeQmRhl499+6jLxcZ2IegLfqq41dzIjwHwTMplg+1pKIOVojpWA== -----END CERTIFICATE----- </ca> key-direction 1 <tls-auth> # # 2048 bit OpenVPN static key # -----BEGIN OpenVPN Static key V1----- e685bdaf659a25a200e2b9e39e51ff03 0fc72cf1ce07232bd8b2be5e6c670143 f51e937e670eee09d4f2ea5a6e4e6996 5db852c275351b86fc4ca892d78ae002 d6f70d029bd79c4d1c26cf14e9588033 cf639f8a74809f29f72b9d58f9b8f5fe fc7938eade40e9fed6cb92184abb2cc1 0eb1a296df243b251df0643d53724cdb 5a92a1d6cb817804c4a9319b57d53be5 80815bcfcb2df55018cc83fc43bc7ff8 2d51f9b88364776ee9d12fc85cc7ea5b 9741c4f598c485316db066d52db4540e 212e1518a9bd4828219e24b20d88f598 a196c9de96012090e333519ae18d3509 9427e7b372d348d352dc4c85e18cd4b9 3f8a56ddb2e64eb67adfc9b337157ff4 -----END OpenVPN Static key V1----- </tls-auth>
  3. NAT 2 on PS4 simply means you are going through a router. If its NAT 3 then this means you are having issues. NAT 1 means direct to modem.
  4. What makes you think its definitely a DDOS and not simply a connection issue caused by virgin? I often see people jump on the DDOS "Wagon" as soon as they start to see packet loss and start to change settings when in reality its simply a connection issue caused by their ISP.
  5. I have found some information but without knowing the technicalities of how the Netduma OS software operates, could this be a potential reason? The only way i have potentially found is for the PiHole to be my DHCP server as well but im not sure how this affect everything else on the router (QOS / Geo filtering etc) So why does Pi-hole only show my router’s IP address? This behavior is usually the result of how your router handles DHCP and DNS. 1. Some routers force clients to use the router as their DNS server Even if you set Pi-hole as the only DNS server in your router’s settings, the router still forces clients to use it as their primary DNS resolver. Once those queries arrive at the router, it forwards the requests to the Pi-hole. Since the queries are all coming from one place, Pi-hole only sees the router as the origin of all DNS requests. So the traffic flow looks something like this:
  6. Thats how i have it now but it doesnt work. It still sees all traffic through the router IP
  7. Oops sorry ive got Xr500. I did see the Dynamic DNS section but didnt know how that works.
  8. I have recently set up a PiHole but when i look in the logs on the PiHole it shows clients IP as my router IP address. I can only find 1 place to change the DNS on the router under INTERNET SETUP but looking online the instructions are for the DNS to be set on LAN. Would someone be able to advise where I am going wrong so i can get PIHole to report my individual client IPs only?
  9. That has worked perfectly! Thank you so much. It's was the LAN port on SH3 bit I was missing. Thanks Alex
  10. I've been struggling with this issue for a while and I hope someone clever will come along and correct this. I have Virgin Superhub 3 and a XR500. Because I want to use Thinkbroadband.com to monitor my connection, I need my SH3 in router mode. I don't want my SH3 to do anything else as I want my XR500 to handle everything. Whatever I try, I cant get the connection through my SH3 to my xr500. I've tried: for SH3 for XR500 I've also tried for SH3 for XR500 What am I doing wrong? Thank you
  11. After 1 more restart of R1 is now allowing connection via 88.1
  12. Admin and password didn't work unfortunately.. I've been running with my superhub recently but decided to go back to R1. I can see Netdumar1 as a wifi option on my phone but when opening info for that, it shows 10. Address and also on my pc wired if I do ipconfig it shows gateway is 10. Address too. Also my pc hasn't got a static assigned locally as I always assign at router level. I can ping the up with a <1ms response and ipconfig shows my pc had a ip address assigned.
  13. My router has been disconnected for a while. I've done a factory reset and now my gateway and also IP on WiFi is and prompts for username and password. I've tried 12 digits of serial and netdumar1 but won't load.
  14. I usually connect to my router via Chrome but its really slow to load after putting in my Username and Password. I thought id try in Firefox as well but i get the same load times. Is there anything else i can try rather than "Reset the router"
  15. Thanks for explaining how it works. The only way for me to toggle the XBOX console is for me to delete it and then re-add next time i want to VPN my console?!
