comment Watch YouTube videos in terminal
@mikeserv: Sorry, I didn't craft my comment very well, I'm afraid. I did notice the "at the time of this writing" caveat and so wasn't surprised that it didn't work. I was curious if anyone had a modified version which was working.

I couldn't get this to work. I tried a number of different YouTube links - I either got "ERROR RETRIEVING VIDEO!" or it just silently failed.

comment Connect to mpd over Openvpn (without changing internet routing)
Thanks. My server config has the following "push" lines: push "redirect-gateway def1 bypass-dhcp" push "dhcp-option DNS 8.8.8.8" push "dhcp-option DNS 8.8.4.4"

comment Connect to mpd over Openvpn (without changing internet routing)
Currently my client .conf files don't have any lines starting with route.... Does OpenVPN default to pushing all of the routes whenever there is no explicit specification of routes?

comment iptables rules for machine running as openvpn server
Thanks! That seems to work now. THough I have two similar looking lines now: -A INPUT -s 192.168.1.0/24 -i wlp3s0 -p tcp -m tcp --dport 22 -m state --state NEW,ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT -A INPUT -s 192.168.1.0/24 -i wlp3s0 -p tcp -m tcp --dport 22 -m state --state NEW -j ACCEPT. Do I need both? Does it matter?

Well, I can connect internally now. But I don't seem to be able to make an OpenVPN connection anymore from outside.

Hmm...now internal SSH doesn't work though. How do I allow for SSH connections within my home network? iptables -A INPUT -i wlp3s0 -p tcp -s 192.168.1.0/24 --dport 22 -m state --state NEW,ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT iptables -A OUTPUT -o wlp3s0 -p tcp --sport 22 -m state --state ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT

When I tried doing iptables-restore with the rules changed as above, I get a message iptables-restore v1.4.21: multiple -j flags not allowed; Error occurred at line: 16.

comment iptables rules for machine running as openvpn server
So I should change :INPUT ACCEPT [323:24107] to :INPUT DROP [323:24107] and add -A INPUT -i wlp3s0 -j ACCEPT -m udp -p udp --dport 1194 -m state --state NEW -j ACCEPT after -A INPUT -i tun+ -j ACCEPT?

So is there a security hole the way I have it now? I have been able to connect successfully to it.

(Un?)fortunately I cannot test this solution, as I "fixed" this problem by re-installing Arch Linux.
