Hello, @fedrickwilliam19

If the OpenVPN server has a public address that you can access it will be the easiest way. If the OpenVPN server is running locally on a device like a Raspberry Pi you can connect to your home network and then use Port Forwarding on your router to access the OpenVPN server.

If this doesn’t answer your question then you can share the full configuration of the OpenVPN server and how you’ve exactly configured it. (Is it running locally on some of your machines or it is running on a DigitalOcean droplet.)

Hope that this helps!

Alex
