Being an EE person can't prevent you from learning what a filter is
outside of EE.  When you are talking with an average person, I hope you
can understand that "filter" would mean for them what is typically used
for cleaning water, not an electric device...

I guess what you were missing here is the meaning of "over".  In network
stuff, A *over* B means A has data to transmit and gets B do it for him.
If you didn't know that, well, you should have studied it before even
thinking about tinkering with networks, since you need to be able to
understand the technical documentations.

Well, the port you have told openvpn to listen on. How do you think
traffic can magically divine where it has to go if you don't tell which
UDP port is being used.

I'm sorry, but I don't have time to spend on teaching you the basic
networking things.
