Ugh, OpenVPN isn't connecting to my homeserver while on the WiFi in this venue.

Not sure if they're blocking ports or something else.
No laptop, only my phone and Termux to test it!

So, if I `nc -p xxxx fqdn.samathy.space` on my mobile data ( where the OpenVPN works ), netcat returns immediately.

Where as, if I do the same while on the WiFi, it just sits there until the connection times out.

That kinda indicates that on mobile data, the connection gets made and the server terminated it instantly ( rightly so ), but on the WiFi, the connection goes out and never gets a response. 😡

I guess is should stop running OpenVPN on a default port.
