Ping remote clients from LAN
For some reason, I cannot initiate any connections from LAN clients to VPN clients.
The setup is as follows:
OpenVPN server in tun mode, subnet topology.
LAN clients are connected to the internet through a gateway group with two gateways.
I suspect the problem has something to do with policy-based routing, but I can't quite identify it.
Maybe the firewall on the vpn client blocks that access.
if your policy routing you would have to have a rule above where you force traffic out a gateway or group that could not get to the vpn.
Or sure it could be firewall on the vpn client side.
Here pinging my vpn client box from the vpn server side.
