No Traffic into OpenVPN Tunnel until Static Route is set



  • Hi,

    following problem.

    For one Client I have set the default gateway to my OpenVPN Tunnel but Traffic doesn't pass into the tunnel until setting static routing.

    0.0.0.0/1 to the tunnel gateway 10.100.6.29

    Problem: All other Hosts which doesn't have the OpenVPN Tunnel as default gateway can't communicate outside after this change.

    What did I miss here ?

    Thx & Greetings



  • @kekskrümel said in No Traffic into OpenVPN Tunnel until Static Route is set:

    0.0.0.0/1 is only the half IPv4 range, so this cannot stand for the default route.

    Furthermore, how have you set that route? A static route on pfSense or a CSO?

    Are you talking about an access server and you want to route the whole traffic of only one client over the VPN?
    So if the server uses TLS/SSL auth set up a CSO for the clients cert common name and check "redirect gateway".
