Hi, I’ve finished the tutorial and I could connect to the server through my Ipad or Android in the OpenVPN app but only when I am connected to the same network otherwise it can’t connect.

Hi @rubenb114,

I take it you’ve followed this tutorial -

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-an-openvpn-server-on-ubuntu-18-04

is that correct?

Additionally, can you specify to which network you are referring to?

In this tutorial, you will set up an OpenVPN server on an Ubuntu 18.04 server and then configure access to it from Windows, OS X, iOS and/or Android devices. This tutorial will keep the installation and configuration steps as simple as possible for each of these setups.
