OpenVPN, connected but can not access local network.



  • Firstly, I would like to say sorry cause I know there's so many people asked about same issue. But though I tried to follow many instruction in thi forum but still not luck.

    For main point:
    OpenVPN Connected, I can ping, can access to pfsense server through it's Lan IP address.
    Ive' already set the default gateway for local network to my Pfsense Lan port IP.
    Tried to turnoff firewall on pc from local network - just can ping it but can not //IP to access shared data.
    In my local network has a wifi AP but I can not ping nor access to it with it's IP.

    Use the firewall monitor I can see that all my package is passed.
    Thank you for any help

    I though the issue here is because when I connect through VPN, the dynamic IP that I got from Pfsense is different subnet with Lan, so the ping, access is got trouble. I tried to turn off firewall on Lan's PC and it can ping.



  • Don't know why you smite me, I'm a noob but I at least try to help. Might have to do with Remote Networks? https://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/OpenVPN_Site_To_Site

    Sorry man,but English is not my mother tounge, but I don't ever try to smite you. I've just try to ask you and every body to help me. I only  try to make the VPN client (laptop, pc, cellphone… from outside network) - site (my home network). Site - site is higher level for what I wanting now. If you are noob so what I am? :))))



  • Did you make the NAT rules that give the internet on the VPN to your LAN network?

    Firewall -> NAT -> Outbound

  • I've just try to turn off firewall on the PC in my local network, this time I can ping it from VPN client (outside network) and I can access the share Data.

    I think that my problem is not about firewall now, because when I'm try to ping or access Local network, the Firewall logs show that the packet is PASSED but nothing respond.

    Is there somehow that PCs and others device in my Local Network realize that the VPN client is from another network then they block the connect (like in case of the PC when I turn off the firewall)
