Can't Access to LAN hosts through OpenVPN



  • With quite moderate knowledge of networks my attempts to configure the pfSense gateway to replace the old ISA Server almost broke my brain in last days.

    I using current build (2.2.1 amd64) pfSense, used this video tutorial, which seems to be simmular to official guide.

    The clients (test from my Android 4.4 Phone and Windows 8.1 PC) connecting to openVPN server without problem (I have white IP on my pfSense WAN, connecting from outbound of course), but I cant ping and access anywhere except the pfSense box itself.
    Also, when the openVPN client on Windows connected I cannot access Internet from Windows machine.

    I know that this problem can occur when the default gateway on the LAN machines is different than LAN address of pfSense, but it is not my case. For testing I created the web server with properly configured gateway, and still cannot ping it, open it's test web page or connect to RDP.

    Some screens with configs in attachments, will provide more screens, config listings or logs if necessary.
