IP conlict on Asus router

I was following this tutorial to setup OpenVPN in Ubuntu 18.0.4

I think I followed it step by step

It worked on my windows and my iPhone.

When I try installing the OpenVPN config on my Asus Router AT-AC68U it gave an exclamation mark saying that there’s an IP Conflict.

The VPN server worked and my IP changed, there’s no DNS leak even if it’s activated from the router.

I’m just curious wether it’s going to be an issue, I only needed this OpenVPN server so I can stream on my Apple TV

Hi @yuomaru,

Usually having an IP conflict will cause an issue in some way. Having said that if you are using it so far and haven’t noticed anything, it’s possible it’s something insignificant.

Anyway, It sounds like it might be a configuration issue. If you decide to change it up, what I could suggest in this case is to try out the OpenVPN 1-Click installation from the Marketplace here:

That way you would know that you have OpenVPN configured correctly.
