Securing wlan with openvpn…



  • Hi there,
    I would like to secure my wlan using openvpn. I have successfully set up a open vpn server (192.168.2.1) and I already configured the open vpn client on my windows laptop(192.168.2.199) using PKI. The wireless card is OPT1 of my pfesene WRAP box and it is bridged with LAN. Now I can make a connection from the client to the server, initialization finishes and I end up with a DHCP address (from the separate open vpn subnet 192.168.100.0/24) asigned to my virtual tap device. But there is no traffic going over the open vpn tunnel since the normal WLAN connection is still active.
    I assume it won't work with a bridged device, will it? Do I have to assign a static IP to OPT1 in a different subnet and add a static route?
    I would appreciate your help.

    If you want to force your clients to send their traffic over the VPN you need to set some custom options:

    read the man pages.
    i think i remember reading somewhere you have to leave the dev1 out if the server is in the same subnet
