OpenVPN Routing problem


It had been a tiresome few days I have a problem on 2 openvpn server client setups.

I have 2 Linux Boxes one setup as a server the other as a client, The after a few Maquarade rules and some routing the entire client network can see the entire server network.

However the server can only see the tunnel interface and cannot see anything else, it cannot even see the Lan interface on the client end.

I initially suspected a fault on the server so I re did the excersise and I had the same problem on 2 completely different server.

There are no fire walls on these boxes and if I traceroute to the lan ip on the client side I get *'s immediately, IP Forwarding is enabled and working because if I VPN in from my VISTA box using a certificate I can get to the entire server network.

I have no doubt that this is a routing issue. I can see in a netstat -nr that my routes are correct!

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated
