OpenVPN Remote Access Route Problem

  • I am working on a 2.0-RELEASE router setting up OpenVPN Remote Access.  The setup is all correct but now when it creates the local routes on the pfsense box it creates them wrong:

    An existing OpenVPN Server: link#23 UHS 0 0 16384 lo0 link#23 UH 0 819 1500 ovpns7

    New OpenVPN Server: link#25 UHS 0 0 16384 lo0 => link#25 U 0 0 1500 ovpns8

    The the remote access clients can not pass traffic because the ip on the pfsense side is "". Has anyone come across this before?  Is there some setting I'm doing wrong?

    OpenVPN Server Config:

    Remote Access (User Auth)
    Protocol: UDP
    Device Mode: tun
    TLS Auth: off
    Tunnel Network:
    Local Network:
    Compression: on
    Type-of-Service: off
    Inter-Client: off
    Dynamic IP: on (tried with off as well)
    Address Pool: on
    DNS Default Domain: escrow.local
    DNS Servers:

    Log output (reverse order):

  • What does the server say?

  • Everything there is from the server side.  The client side shows no differences and I am 100% certain that the bad route is the issue.

  • It didn't finish establishing the connection.  I'd need to see more if you still haven't fixed the solution, you can always contact me.
