OVPN TAP Should work but isn't



  • Hello, I posed on Reddit for help, and someone was walking me through some basic troubleshooting. They said that my setup should be working, but it isn't.

    I can't see the gateway on vpn even though it says it's connected. I'm trying to set up a TAP to connect to my desktop and use steam in home streaming.
    My LAN is set to 192.168.124.1/24
    I was getting an error Warning: address 192.168.124.1 is not a network address in relation to netmask 255.255.255.0

    So I'm not getting the TLS error anymore. However I have to keep bridge DHCP enabled to prevent it.

    With it on, I'm getting "unable to redirect default gateway – VPN gateway parameter (--route-gateway or --ifconfig) is missing"
    If i set the server bridge dhcp I get an IP from the vpn, however the gateway is still missing.

    Sorry if I miss any rules, or information. This is my first post, I've looked around the forums without much luck.



  • Hi,

    Just wondering if you were able to resolve your issue?, it seems that I have a very similar problem which I detailed in post:

    https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=141511.0

    I didn't get any replies either and I'm stuck where to go from here as well.

    Regards,

    Robert.
