Using https://github.com/angristan/openvpn-install i have installed openvpn on AWS Lightsail Instance (Ubuntu 18.04 LTS). My server config file is as follows:

    port 33434
    proto udp
    dev tun
    user nobody
    group nogroup
    persist-key
    persist-tun
    keepalive 10 120
    topology subnet
    server 10.8.0.0 255.255.255.0
    ifconfig-pool-persist ipp.txt
    push "dhcp-option DNS 8.8.8.8"
    push "dhcp-option DNS 8.8.4.4"
    push "redirect-gateway def1 bypass-dhcp"
    dh dh.pem
    tls-auth tls-auth.key 0
    crl-verify crl.pem
    ca ca.crt
    cert server_VYtknmf1PC80WpTG.crt
    key server_VYtknmf1PC80WpTG.key
    auth SHA512
    cipher AES-256-CBC
    ncp-ciphers AES-256-CBC
    tls-server
    client-config-dir /etc/openvpn/ccd
    status /var/log/openvpn/status.log
    verb 3

And my client.ovpn is as follows:

client
proto udp
explicit-exit-notify
remote 35.173.69.115 33434
dev tun
resolv-retry infinite
nobind
persist-key
persist-tun
remote-cert-tls server
verify-x509-name server_VYtknmf1PC80WpTG name
auth SHA512
auth-nocache
cipher AES-256-CBC
tls-client
setenv opt block-outside-dns # Prevent Windows 10 DNS leak
verb 3

I have added port '33434' UDP in Firewall rule of AWS instance.

I added a new profile in VPN Client section of the asus router and uploaded the client.ovpn file. And clicked activate and get follow message in the log.
