No connection through tunnel

  • Hello,

    I've followed the guide here (, and have a pfSense OpenVPN server running. The clients connect through, get IPs, but do not have the ability to access any files on the LAN (nor can any computers on the LAN talk to them). The routes seem to be in place on the clients, and there's nothing being indicated as blocked in the firewall. Any ideas?

    Also, how do I pull out the OpenVPN server-side config file? (I assume that'd be helpful to post here)

    dev tun
    proto udp
    cipher AES-128-CBC
    resolv-retry infinite
    remote 1195
    tls-remote Cert1
    pkcs12 pfsense-udp-1195.p12

    Any advice that can be offered would be very much appreciated. Thanks!

    The server's raw config would be in /var/etc/openvpn/

    If the clients have routes, try doing a traceroute and see how far it gets.

    See if you can ping/reach the pfSense firewall's LAN IP. If you can reach the LAN IP and no farther, it could be something on the target machine (local firewall/filter), or it may not be using pfSense as its default gateway.

    If you can't reach the pfSense firewall's LAN IP, then I'd double check the routing, make sure the client is being run as Administrator on Vista/w7/w8/etc.
