    Hi
    I think you should add at your vpn server config under

    Advanced configuration

    server configuration the

    push "route x.x.x.x(network id) x.x.x.x(subnet mask)";

    for eg.

    push "route 192.168.1.0 255.255.255.0";

    of all your local networks site where VPN SERVER RESIDE
    and make sure firewall rules openvpn allow communication
    hope its helps



  • Thanks ! But I already tried this no use still the same. I can see that I am missing something very small which I am unable to figure out.
    What could be the reason. Firewall rules are automatically created by the pfsense oprn vpn configuration wizard.

    Help me to resolve this issue!

    two additional things,
    1. if you configured the VPN server and exported vpn client , and right after it made small change to vpn server like for example  added

    Compress tunnel packets using the LZO algorithm.

    you either make the change in the vpn client to adjust it or reexport it again to the user.
    2. If your clients are win7 , make sure they are right click when they execute Openvpn client

    run as administrator

    other wisw they want be able to push routes
