I want to connect my external proxmox server which is in other network with my local cluster currently with 3 nodes connected.
I tried installing a VPN in the external server but when I try to join the cluster I got this error during the conection:

permission denied - invalid PVE ticket (401)​

And then the WEB INTERFACE stop working.
In the cluster appears this message:
What can I do?

It sounds like the latency in your setup could be a problem. The latency should be <10ms. See network requirements.

With that said you could try to run pvecm updatecerts --force on all the nodes

With that I repair the external node, for some reason in pveproxy appears an error and with that command fixes.

I calculated the ping from external node with my local cluster and is 30ms, so high.

I want connect the external node for move my VMs from my local. Because the external node is a cloud and is better than my actual nodes.

Is any way to move my VM's to that node?

A cluster is ment for one local, low latency network. What you have are multiple cluster in different locations. A transfer in that case is usually done by backing up the vm in one cluster and restoring it to the other
