OpenVPN: Use Remote Servers WAN



  • Hey Guys,

    I've currently got a OpenVPN setup where I can simply connect to my home pfSense Server from work and use my Local Network.

    My Network is on the 10.0.1.0/24 Range
    My OpenVPN is on the 10.0.3.0/24 Range

    Now I'll be taking a trip to Vancouver soon and I access various sites that require me to have my WAN IP, so connecting from my Hotels WAN will not allow me access, so I've setup a Secondary OpenVPN Server on the 10.0.4.0/24 Range.

    Primary VPN uses port 1194
    Secondary VPN uses port 1195

    I've ticked the "Force all client generated traffic through the tunnel." Option and setup the following advanced commands

    "push "redirect-gateway def1";push "dhcp-option DNS 10.0.1.1";verb 1;mute-replay-warnings"

    Finally I have Manual NATing enabled so I've setup the following rule

    WAN 10.0.4.0/24.

    Now I can connect to my VPN without issue, but I do see the following: UDPv4 link local (bound): [undef]:1194 <– surely this should be 1195?

    I cannot ping anything on the WAN but can connect to my LAN. For example, ping 208.67.222.222 returns 100% packet loss but ping 10.0.1.1 returns normaly.

    Any ideas on where to go from here?
