I have two LAN sections (home and remote) joined together using OpenVPN on the
remote router to a dedicated OpenVPN server on my home LAN.
They run on addresses 192.168.119.x and 192.168.117.x respectively.

The router on the home LAN is set up to route calls to 192.168.117.x via the
OpenVPN server, so both LAN sections are effectively connected. I can connect to
all devices from all devices.

I also have an Ubuntu 20.04.4 server on the home LAN, which is running minidlna
to act as a DLNA server for a video library on that server.
When I use devices like a smart-TV or Windows computers on tyhe home LAN they
see the shared video library.

But not so for devices on the remote LAN...

Is there some configuration either on the minidlna config or elsewhere that
could be made in order to let the remote LAN devices "see" the minidlna server?
They are as you see on separate subnets, which are joined together via the VPN

Sorry, I posted on the list that was open in my newsreader assuming it was the
ubuntu-user's list.
Please disregard!
