OpenVPN - can't ping Windows 10



  • Hello, I'm using PfSense 2.4.4-RELEASE (amd64)
    WAN 192.168.1.xxx
    LAN 192.168.0.xxx
    --PFSENSE 192.168.0.1
    --PC1 192.168.0.10
    --PC2 192.168.0.41
    --PC3 192.168.0.42
    --PC4 192.168.0.43
    --IP Printer 192.168.0.70
    --IP Camera 192.168.0.220
    OVPN 10.0.8.xxx
    --PFSENSE 10.0.8.1
    When I access with my phone from outside via OVPN (my IP 10.0.8.2)
    I can ping:
    --PFSENSE 10.0.8.1
    --PFSENSE 192.168.0.1
    --IP Printer 192.168.0.70
    --IP Camera 192.168.0.220
    So my OVPN has access to my LAN
    But can't ping:
    --PC1 192.168.0.10
    --PC2 192.168.0.41
    --PC3 192.168.0.42
    --PC4 192.168.0.43
    PCx can ping me (beacause i'm using a phone) but when I access with a pc to the VPN they can't ping me.
    I can't understand what's happening..
    I search everywhere..
    I have no more clues..
    What can I try?



  • Windows 10 does not anwser to Echo request (Ping) by default due to the Windows Firewall.
    You can temp. disable the Firewall in Windows for testing.

  • But when I'm in LAN I can make ping to all PC and can access to "\192.168.0.43\d" for example.
    When I'm in OVPN can't make ping to any PC and can't access to "\10.0.8.4\d" for example.



  • I think, it doesn't answer ping requests from other interface. I have the same problem in my network. I have 2 interfaces (192.168.2.0/24 and 192.168.4.0/24) and openvpn. When I ping pcs from 4.0 to 2.0, it pings although there is a firewall, but when I do reverse from 2.0 to 4.0, no ping reply. I disable firewall, then it pings. It is the same for openvpn. I don't know why.



  • 2 days and I have the solution. The thing is.. Windows Firewall blocks all external interface connection. If you want to access you have to create windows firewall rule like "access from 10.0.8.0/24". OR add in advance options

    push "route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 vpn_gateway 999"
    


  • ...this is what I already told you 2 days ago. ☺
