ACT! Pro Sync over VPN Issue

I have the following installed:

ACT! Pro V16 with HotFix 5

ACT is installed on Two computers, a HP Desktop running Win 8.1 with all updates holds the main db

An HP laptop running Win 8.1 with all updates holds the remote db.


I want to sync remotely over VPN.  I am running an ASUS RT-N66U wireless router.

Running OpenVPN server on the ASUS router.

I have installed the client side of the OpenVPN on the laptop.

I can connect through the VPN and do the following:

Connect to the router and change configuration.

Connect to my Synology NAS, reconfigure, browse files, etc.

Conntect to my desktop with Remote Access and control it remotely.


What I can't do is sync the ACT! remote db through the VPN tunnel.  When I connect the laptop to my home network and the sync works perfectly.


I don't understand what I am missing that prevents the sync.

I have checked my Norton FIrewall and all services appear to be allowed.

The ASUS firewall doesn't apprear to be a problem.


Using the default port for sync 65100.


Any suggestions are appreciated.  I'm baffled.........
