OpenVPN cant connect to subnet.It's probabily simple :)



  • Hi Everyone,

    I am looking for a little help on my relatively simple pfSense OpenVPN setup. It is running 2.2.3-Release

    My pfsense has three nics each serving its own network

    bge0 serves 192.168.0.0/24 and is all static. This holds the "LAB" network.
    em0 serves the WAN interface (Set to DHCP)
    em1 servers 192.168.1.0/24. All addresses DHCP served. This holds the "Wireless" network.

    All the clients are setup fine, internet and inter network range is all good.

    I have setup the OpenVPN with 192.168.2.0/24 (for now). The VPN client connects fine and I get 192.168.2.6 typically as my network address. I can ping the 192.168.1.1 gateway no problem.

    What I can't do however is talk  (ping, load webpages etc) to the LAB or Wireless network from the VPN network.

    I am sure it is something quite simple but my network-fu is not strong enough to sort it. If anyone has any ideas or help it would be gratefully recieved.

    Did you pass the destination networks on the OpenVPN tab firewall rules?



  • Well this shows home much of a newb I am. I had several duplicated rules for the VPN as I ran the VPN wizard several times.

    I can now ping 192.168.1.1. That is an inprovement. I still cannot for example load the webpage at 192.168.0.200. I know it works as I loaded it a few mins ago.

    You have both local networks listed in the OpenVPN Server instance?
