Cannot reach LAN from "Address Pool"
augie last edited by
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
Address Pool 192.168.200.0/24
Local Network 192.168.1.0/24
Custom Option management 127.0.0.1 1194; [for OpenVPN Status Package]
Win7 ovpn_home.ovpn file - And the same in linux
remote myipathom.dyndns.org 1194
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.
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.
