Open VPN public IP



  • hi Guys,
    I have the OpenVPN server running on a remote server.  with a public IP of lets say 99.0.0.1 (fake)  I am at home on a Public Ip of 80.0.0.1.  When I connect to my openvpn server and check my public IP address from any website it still shows me at home 80.0.0.1.  Any know gotcha's that I should look at?



  • Issue was so simple.  I needed to run openVPN in windows with admin rights.  Routes are now pushed and its working



  • Well you don't really need to run as admin  if you install the service part. Just FYI.

    You mean the management interface? Well, I have yet to find a box where it works (as opposed to just confusing itself with config file locations and making itself completely no-op).
