    Default OpenVpn using a non-standard port.

    I currently have an OpenVpn server running on my Untangle using the standard port 1194. I keep hearing that I should be running the server on a non-standard port but I am not sure how I would go about accomplishing this.

    Is this really necessary, and if so, how would I go about this.

    What port(s) would be available?

    Thanks!

    Why would you run it on a nonstandard port?

    And before you ask, Untangle doesn't support this. It can be done, but it's not supported. But we're still back to the first question above. Because I have yet to have anyone give me a good answer to it. There is no security to be gained moving it. Though there are some cases were moving it can help with a stupid ISP that's mucking with UDP 1194 traffic.
