VPN CLIENT CANT PING TO WINDOWS SERVER


  • Dear team,

    I have successfully configured the open vpn server and working good except that i cant ping to my windows server on lan from vpn client. I can ping all other machines such as windows 10 machine, printers, dvr's etc… How can i resolve this ?


  • Windows firewall active?
    The firewall blocks access from other subnets by default. So you'll have to add a rule to allow access from the VPN tunnel subnet.


  • If the interface you are pinging on the server isn't its primary interface, ensure the server has a valid route for return traffic on the interface that you are pinging. Examin "route print" on the server to see where traffic from your OpenVPN subnet will end up.
