Peer to peer .. Banging my head



  • I have setup an open VPN peer to peer network linking to lans.
    The problems is client can not ping anything on the server side except the pfsense server router.
    both routers running 2.01

    Server:
    P2P shared Key
    UDP
    Tun
    Wan 2 (dual wan)
    1194
    aes-256cbc
    tunnel Net 192.168.4.0/24
    local: 192.168.1.0/24
    Remote 192.168.2.0/24

    Client
    Same as server except
    Remote net: 192.168.1.0/24

    The firewall has all the right exceptions.
    client and server openvpn


    server wan 2
    UDP * * Wan2 address 1194 *

    I can ping from the server side to any and all clients
    But when I ping from the Client to the server. I can only ping the Pfsense server box. a tracert stop after 192.168.4.1

    Any help PLEASE running out of time.



  • Did you checked lan and openvpn rules?

    Do you have same subnets on both sides?

    Can you try to Create a nat on first firewall to clients reach server on the other side of the VPN?



  • Sounds like the return routing of the clients on the remote network is wrong (using something else as their default gateway maybe), or the clients have a firewall locally on them that only permits local subnet traffic.

    I guess when all else fails look for the obvious answer. Thank you, very much for the help.

    LOL maybe I banged my head too much. I turned off the firewall on the local machine on the server side and it pinged great. I just have to figure out a printer situation. I think it is a gateway problem.
    THANKS AGAIN.
