OpenVPN + OS X Leopard + Shimo Problems
I've been reading the posts, and trying to figure out where my issue lies, but its time to turn to you guys :-)
I have a Pfsense running at home and decided to move from having port 22 open from my office, to just having a VPN I can use anywhere… I followed the tutorials listed here and progressed onto connectiong w/o any issues.
I am running OS X 10.5.7 on a MBP and using Shimo (http://www.shimoapp.com/) to connect. I've been using Shimo for years to connect to my Cisco Concentrator at the data center and noticed it supports a lot more VPNs, IPSec, OVPN, etc.
I can connect successfully, but cannot connect/ping/ssh/ftp/http to anything, zero connection :-(
Here is my configuration:
LAN = 192.168.10.1 (192.168.10.0/24)
OpenVPN Server Config:
Dynamic IP: Checked
Local Port: 1194
Address Pool: 192.168.200.0/24
Local Network: 192.168.10.0/24
Crypto: BF-CBC (128-bit) (DEFAULT)
Authentication Method: PKI
All the correct keys are pasted in.
Source Port *
Destination: (Tried both LAN net & *)
Source Port *
Destination Port 1194 (OpenVPN)
Shimo is configured with OpenVPN, and TUN, Certs/Keys & IP. And reconnect of 30 seconds.
I receive no errors on the Mac and actually see myself connected on the PFSense:

And here's the output of a netstat on my MBP:

I think I've provided about all the info I can, any help on this would be GREATLY appreciated.

Check your LZO compression setting, your logs are complaining that LZO compression is enabled only on one side of your tunnel.
Same with MTU, mismatched settings. Not familiar with Shimo so check your settings there match your pfSense OVPN settings
You're the man! I had (in Shimo) Compression set to Disabled, and changed it to "Never" and somehow that fixed it…. go figure :-)
