Stuck on Initializing Dappnode

I have a custom NUC i5 Version 8 with Dappnode installed. After everything downloaded, I am trying to get my Open VPN set up. However when I type in “dappnode_connect” it just says “initializing Dappnode” and stalls. FYI - I read the other threads but did not find an actual solution.

Hi there!

Connect to your dappnode through VPN could be tricky sometimes. You can connect using the dappnode wifi hostpot for the moment and configure what you need.

To be able to connect to your dappnode you should have UPnP enabled in your router and your dappnode wired to your router.

Even having UPnP enabled double check the ports in your router configuration.
