Setup remote access: remote host not accessible

my colleague is pulling out her hair. I took a look into her openVPN configuration. It looks reasonable.
She were trying to setup openVPN on remote pfsense so we can access remote hosts by using openVPN. Unfortunatelly we cannot access remote host (ping failed). So what could be wrong?
This is our current setup:
Disable this server: not ticked Server Mode: Remote Access (SSL/TLS + User Auth) Backend for authentication: Local Database Protocol: UDP Device Mode: tun Interface: WAN Local Port: 1194 Description: vvVPN
I think the settings are fine here.
Tunnel Network: 10.0.8.0/24 Redirect Gateway: not ticked Local Network: 192.168.101.0/24 Concurrent connections: 2 Compression: ticked Type-of-Service: not ticked Inter-client communication: not ticked Duplicate Connections: not ticked
Dynamic IP: ticked Address Pool: ticked DNS Default Domain: not ticked DNS Servers: not ticked NTP Servers: not ticked NetBIOS Options: not ticked
We tried to ping remote host 192.168.101.11 but it failed.
There are a firewall rule for openVPN in tab "openVPN" (created by openVPN Wizard) which allows everythin from everywhere to everywhere.
So, what could be wrong?

In the Cryptographic Settings section, make sure you have a Peer Certificate Revocation List listed
If the remote host has a software firewall enabled, make sure it is configured to respond to icmp
What is the IP of the machine you are coming from? Make sure it's not on the 192.168.101.0/24 network
