Question

Connect to Windows10 Remote Desktop through OpenVPN server on droplet?

How do I configure Norton 360 to allow me to connect to Windows10 Remote Desktop ?

Background: I worked through the OpenVPN on Ubuntu 16.04 guide guide, and was able to connect on all of my clients. I was able to ping my mobile device clients, but not my Windows10 based OpenVPN client. But, after turning off my Norton firewall AND Norton auto protect I could ping it! I tried Remote Desktop with those Norton services off and connected through my droplet based server, so I guess my problem is in Norton.

Can anyone advise on how to configure Norton to allow RD via OpenVia?

I can connect to RD via my home IP with the correct ports forwarded.
