Cannot reach LAN from "Address Pool"



  • Hi
    I'm trying to connect to my home network from "anywhere". The problem is that I get an IP in the virtual address pool but I cannot reach my LAN. I cannot access internet, connect to any hosts, servers or my pfsense server on the LAN. The only thing that works is that I can ping my pfsense server on 192.168.1.1. Since I get the same problem on both a win7 and an ubuntu 8.04 host I assume it is related to the OpenVPN server setup or some other pfsense setup error. Please help!

    OpenVPN setup on pfsense
    UDP
    Dynamic IP
    1194
    Address Pool 192.168.200.0/24
    Local Network 192.168.1.0/24
    LZO compression
    Custom Option management 127.0.0.1 1194; [for OpenVPN Status Package]

    Win7 ovpn_home.ovpn file - And the same in linux
    float
    port 1194
    dev tun
    dev-node ovpn_home
    proto udp
    remote myipathom.dyndns.org 1194
    ping 10
    persist-tun
    persist-key
    tls-client
    ca ca.crt
    cert client1.crt
    key client1.key
    ns-cert-type server
    comp-lzo
    pull
    verb 4

    Firewall Rules
    WAN - allow udp 1194 to any
    LAN - allow any to any

    That's it I think! Ah, yes, I tried to set up a "Client Specific configuration" with push "route 192.168.1.0 255.255.255.0" without success.

    Any suggestions?

    Not sure about ubuntu clients, but on Win7 were you running the client as Administrator?

    When connected, go to a CMD prompt, and type "route print" and see if you have a route to your home network that has an IP in the OpenVPN address pool as its gateway.
