Unable to find HDHomeRun tuner via VPN

Post by itm60 »

I have an OpenVPN Access Server deployed, and have connected to it from a remote location using the OpenVPN Client Connect app on Windows 10. I can access all of the network resources on my LAN, except for the HDHomeRun. When I open the HDHomeRun app I get this error message:
"Unable to find HDHomeRun tuner on local network"

Any idea why the tuner can't be seen when connected via VPN?

The HDHomeRun app is sending a broadcast discovery which your VPN client software is most likely not sending down the VPN link based on the symptom.

Any idea how to correct it? My understanding was that all network traffic should be sent down the VPN tunnel

You could try configuring it (OpenVPN Access Server) for a privately bridged network as described here:
