How to make OpenVPN work over wireless network

Hi, I need to ssh to remote host through OpenVPN but it is only working when I enabled "Bridge Mode" over wired network. I don't have my own router and I also need wireless connection for my other devices. How can I make ssh work with wifi?

You may need to open / port forward the necessary port(s) to enable SSH to access the internet. Check the SSH's server / client instructions for port forwarding.

I'm sure you've figured this out, but for anyone else that Google's this issue:

OpenVPN operates on port 1194. If you forward port 1194 UDP and TCP on your gateway for the device you wish to utilize OpenVPN, it will work properly.
