Openvpn client to client routing question
I have openvpn setup successfully, but I have a question about how packets are routed between clients.
Are packets routed through the internet directly between clients or are the packets first routed to the openvpn server then to the other client.
In the case of an actual lan there would be no routing involved and it would be the switch that sent packets between two clients. However in this case there is in fact routing that needs to take place even if networking tool such don't see it.
I am asking this question because I want to know if clients connecting to each other would tie up the bandwidth of the openvpn server and I don't know how I could use networking tools to figure this out since all tool like traceroute can see is the virtual openvpn network.
Thanks for any insight into this,
