How to connect an AWS OpenVPN AS to allow Traefik to work

Due to multiple uncontrolled network issues, I need to use Amazons AWS to run an openvpn service to route traffic to my home server.

I followed a tutorial on Digital Ocean to setting up Traefik, but the monitor.domain does not update with additional services and nothing is reachable from the internet. I can reach the various services on my Docker by listing them in my local etc/hosts table.

I suspect I need to set some routing in the openvpn server regarding headings or something, but I am not sure.

Any help would be appreciated.

thank you,
