R7000 OpenVPN - port forwarding?

Half a year ago I stopped using my OpenVPN set up to connect my Android phone to my home network. My no-ip.com DDNS service expired.

Now I want to set it up again, but I can't seem to manage it. I don't remember it being this hard.

I'm following this guide: https://www.myopenrouter.com/article/how-set-openvpn-and-dynamicdns-netg...

I have a host name at no-ip. In my router in Dynamic DNS I've filled in my credentials. Clicking "Show status" says it updated correctly. VPN Service is active and at default settings.

I download the configuration package and load into the OpenVPN app in my Android. When connecting, it only says "waiting for server".

Following the Device Configuring Assistant at no-ip, I chose "Netgear" and "OpenVPN", it then instructs me to set up a port forwarding to 1194. I don't remember opening ports last time I did this. What should this port point to?

What am I missing?
