DD-WRT not running TorGuard Startup Command

Rate this topic


Recommended Posts

I've recently installed a Netgear Orbi RBR50 and placed a Netgear R7800 w/ DD-WRT inside the network. My DD-WRT router is not running the TorGuard startup command so the R7800 w/ DD-WRT is not connecting to the VPN.

I've patched the Orbi with V2.5.1.8 and I've flashed the R7800 with DD-WRT v3.0-r42819 std (03/30/20).

The Orbi LAN is subnet and is checked as the DHCP server. I've added a fixed IP for the R7800 w/ DD-WRT ( and set the Advanced > Setup > WAN > Default DMZ Server to I can connect clients to the R7800 w/ DD-WRT and browse the internet with a non-VPN conneciton.

The R7800 with DD-WRT is setup as follows:

  1. The R7800 w/ DD-WRT is setup as and assigning ip addresses and is allowing the connected devices using 192.168.2.XX IPs to access the internet. 
  2. In DD-WRT > Services > VPN > OpenVPN Server/Daemon i've checked OpenVPN > Enable
  3. In DD-WRT > Administration > Commands > Startup I've added the file with my credentials (redacted) 
  4. After rebooting the Router the OpenVPN log is empty
  5. The SysLog shows the following  (DDWRT_setup04.png)


As a side note on startup DD-WRT was not able to resolve 0.north-america.pool.ntp.org so I needed to use (Google) (DDWRT_setup05.png). Although once the router is Up DNS to outside websites is working just fine. Are my DNS settings bad?

Its as if the Startup Command is not even being run. Have I missed something? Thanks!
