Moonlight remote streaming

Hello i've recently setup a new Retropie image and all that and one of the things I got this for was Moonlight.
I'm using a 4GB Pi4 with the Retropie image straight from the Raspberry Pi Imager's options. I have Moonlight installed from the experimental list in the configuration.
So long as i'm on my local network, everything's fine. But I was hoping to be able to take this places and play my games remotely similarly to how I do on my phone. (PiBoy kit for portable ROM play, and plug into a screen for streaming is my plan) When I try to connect off my local network it won't work. I figure however it's set up is only looking for my local IP. I've tried clearing out the IP and connecting to my public IP, which does seem to call the pairing prompt on my PC but I still can't play any games this way.
So I tried setting up OpenVPN on another Pi at home and configure my Retropie to connect that way. I got the server side up and running (or so it appears, I haven't been able to test it) but I can't get connected client side.
My overall question is this: How do I use Moonlight to remotely connect to my home PC and stream games off of it? Preferably i'd like the most direct way, but if I have to go through OpenVPN that's fine i'd just like to know how to go about doing that.
Another small question I have is Moonlight doesn't seem to want to use the headphone jack on the Pi, and I haven't been able to test if audio is going over HDMI. If I can get the headphone jack working that'd be great too. I haven't really found anything to fix that.

I can't help you with th ip issue but I can help you with the audio. I took me hours to figure it out. Add this to the moonlight config file:
audio = local
Then the audio will come out of the raspberry pis audio jack.
