Hi folks
anybody running openvpn here (any host) -- is it possible to tunnel the client as per say nordvpn or other commercial vpn's from a Windows remote laptop (W11) (to your openvpn server)

Cheers

My understanding is that you are trying to connect to NordVPN first and then tunnel through that to your own OpenVPN server? I don't think that is possible. And what would be the advantage hoped to be gained?

Hi there
Nope

Just trying to "Tunnel" as per NordVpn or similar.

I.e what I want to do is to access say my HDD's on the remote computer (via OpenVpn) but still access other services as normal on the "local machine" which is the laptop I'm using away from the site.

Two VPN connections at once? Don't think that would work either.
