VPN not being established over WAN ethernet interface

Hi as per topic subject, I have an openvpn server with multiple client MP70’s connecting to it via cellular. I have one site where I need the VPN established over the LAN ethernet port. I have port 4 specified to WAN and can get internet traffic via the LAN and WIFI but it wont connect to the VPN.

How do i force the VPN to fire on the ethernet WAN interface. VPN is fine on cellular just not on ethernet WAN.

I have the priority set to ethernet LAN as primary and there is not SIM in it so it wont try cellular.
What am I missing? the openvpn server doesnt even seem to be seeing any traffic/atempting vpn connection. Verbose logging on the VPN for the MP70 doesnt shed any light.

Any ideas appreciated, i ma new to MP70’s so hope I am not missing obvious.
