RUTX08 OpenVPN client add "Allow-openvpn-traffic" rule - why?


if I configured a RUTX08 router as OpenVPN client (not server), why the firmware add the “Allow-openvpn-traffic” rule?

This rule makes absolute no sense since it opens the OpenVPN server port on the RUTX08 (client only)…

Note: I disabled the rule on the screenshot.


Currently, the port is open as long as at least one OpenVPN instance is enabled, regardless of whether it’s a server or client instance. However, there are plans to improve this in the future, although the exact timeline for when this improvement will be implemented is uncertain.

Kind Regards,
