I have an OpenVPN setup. It seems to be OK but I think I'm missing something. From the VPN client I can ping, across the tunnel, all the machines on the local side of VPN server. Also I can ftp and telnet to any machine on the local network.
I cannot, however, ping the VPN client from any of the machines on the local network. I'm not sure but I don't think that this how it's supposed to be. The only thing that comes to my mind that the routing on the server is not configured properly as I have all the machines on the local network configured to use the VPN server as the gateway. The OpenVPN server is configured to forward all the traffic:
/proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward = 1
/proc/sys/net/ipv4/conf/all/ip_forward = 1
The OpenVPN server is version 2.0.6, I'm running in on SuSE 9.3. Below is my server and client configuration.
Server configuration file:
server 10.11.38.0 255.255.255.0
push "10.20.38.0 255.255.255.0"
keepalive 10 120
Client configuration file:
remote 10.1.1.25 1194
I will greatly appreciate any suggestions...
