    Hi @jibanez

    Your client is saying that you can't resolve (via DNS) the hostname of your firewall.

    2021-08-24T08:18:19.747 OVPN:>LOG:1629764299,N,RESOLVE: Cannot resolve host address: (No such host is known. )

    (I removed part of your hostname to ensure that others don't try to connect to it should it be fixed.)

    Since you're using DynDNS, please make sure whatever method you're using to update's service is running.
    -If you're using a free tier of their service, you usually will need to log into their website from time to time to maintain the service.
    -If you're using a paid/professional tier, please make sure your account is up to date.

    Once the hostname resolves to an address, the VPN should be able to find the firewall and connect to it.
