Openvpn via Cisco 871w

I'm setting up openvpn to SSL to my home not work. I just wanted to know how should ip configure my router to allow the connection for port forwarding, NAT, ACL(Firewall)

Here is what I've done so far on my 871w router running IOS C870-ADVIPSERVICESK9-M, Version 12.4(15)T1: = Server Node running OpenVPN = Router internal ip address

1194 = Port OpenVPN is listening on

ISP external IP address = (DHCP)

Port forwarding:

ip nat inside source static tcp 1194 1194 extendable (should the address be changed to or or port name)

Do I also have to edit ip access-list extended Internet-inbound-ACL and ip access-list extended Guest-ACL with something like this:

permit udp any any 1194 (to allow openvpn connection through the firewall from the internet)

For any of you who are trying to setup OpenVPN on windows 2003 server here is a great step by step guide that I found after scurrying the internet for several days. Hope it helps. Kudos to Brian Hitney
