Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

My home computer (ubuntu 12.04) is behind router and has all TCP ports and some main UDP ports forwarded to it. I'm also able to watch iptv from it via VLC. Channels in vlc playlist got addresses udp://@239.2.3.XXX:1234.

Recently I had to set up openvpn server on that computer and frequently using it. I've set up vpn server from this guide. I'm not very familiar with configuring routers so I wonder if it is possible to view that iptv while connected to vpn server (maybe there's a software solution)? Right now if I execute the same playlist on remote computer it's not working.

Thanks in advance.
