My VoIP model is using 10000 - 20000 udp for the media so this is the reason
I have to tunnel OpenVPN through SSH or Stunnel since I can forward my udp
traffic through OpenVPN.
Another alternative that I am exploring is SSH or Stunnels with Socat!
http://www.zarb.org/~gc/html/udp-in-ssh-tunneling.html but I need to find
out how to forward a range of ports through it.

I need to investigate if Stunnel is available as a package for OpenWRT or
