Static Route for VPN? (Solved)



  • Hi,
    I was wondering if someone else has this dilema? as my previous post of accomplishing OpenVPN site to site with DDWRT

    https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=127455.0

    All i need is to figure out a way that pfSense and the users under the LAN can communicate to DDWRT right now I have it working DDWRT be able to ping pfSense and the users on LAN.

    I also created a rule on the LAN

    IPv4 * * * 192.168.90.0/24 * * none   Allow OpenVPN Site to site to access the LAN

    but maybe on routing I would create a VIP with an IP alias 192.168.90.251 then on routing add the IP which is given to DDWRT for the OpenVPN 192.168.90.6 as the gateway and then route the network to the gateway?

    Im somewhat lost in this part clueless

    Thank you



  • I think it might benefit you to read some books on IP routing.

    Assuming you are not doing NAT, if you can ping hosts on the other LAN from a host on the local LAN (IE, not the firewall, because it will most likely use an IP address on the tunnel interface), then routing is not the issue. You should look closer at your firewall rules on both ends and both hosts. A packet capture might be helpful for determining what is going on.



  • Thanks for the reply, but as a matter of fact it was an routing issue, i had client overide and add the routes manually so each can ping each other, best part of all did not have to read books
