A big hello to the community. I an new to Yunohost and really enjoyed the installation and first test run of my server. Unfortunately I ran into some problems when i decided to install a fresh version into my old PC which I have at home. Every device at home is behind a VPN client (from a VPN company) installed in my router.
So, I installed everything fine, registered a nohost.me name using the automatic method through the web interface.
THe problem i get is that I cannot access the domain from the outside. The domain is registred on the Dyndns but when i type the web address i chose, nothing is happening.
From the local network I have access perfectly, plus i can download any application i want from the desktop-server. Please find below my setup:
My YunoHost server
Hardware: Old laptop or computerat home / OpenVPN client installed in router
YunoHost version: 3.6
I have access to my server : Through SSH | through the webadmin | direct access via keyboard / screen | …
Are you in a special context or did you perform some particular tweaking on your YunoHost instance ? : yes. I have disabled ipv6 since i tought this was causing the issues (log below)

In order to reach the server from the outside, i have opened a specific port through my VPN provider since the IP address i am given is shared. This port forwarding i tested that is reachable when I have a service listening to that port (this test was prior of installing Yunohost).
I should note that in my first attempt to get ot know Yunohost i installed it in an another location that was not behind VPN and everything was perfectly fine even with the Lets encrypt certificate. I could access everything from the outside. When i brought the same pc at home though, i got the same messages above.
I read in a recent forum post that some people had similar issues and it seemed that the name was not registering somewhere i think…
Please also note that I am a newbie to this self hosting thing and limited experience, so please be gentle!
I appreciate your help.
