Ping other end of vpn tunnel



  • Hi Guys

    I'm connecting ok to my openvpn server, I was just wondering if I was meant to be able to ping the other end of the vpn connection.

    If I get IP 192.168.2.6 on PC the other end is 192.168.2.5. When I try and ping that I get no response, but I can ping LAN network on the PFsense router.

    Should I be able to ping that IP and if so what do I need to do to allow it.

  • Are you using TUN or TAP?



  • I'm using TUN, should I be using TAP?



  • @Wasca:

    I'm using TUN, should I be using TAP?

    tun is fine.  Typically though, when I do tunnels, I have the tunnel network on a different subnet that the network that the clients will be trying to reach.

    ex.  For my home, I have 10.10.6.0 /24.  For my buds to VPN to me and grab stuff from my server, they are on 172.17.0.0 /28.

    The issue might be that the tunnel network is using the same subnet as the network you're trying to access.
