In my previous post I wrote about how to setup an SSL VPN server on Windows 2012 R2 and enable external network access to the server using OpenVPN.. This article will walk you through the process of configuring IP forwarding on our Windows server and exposing static routes to enable VPN clients to access network devices on the LAN given that Out-the-box OpenVPN will only allow the clients to

While the VPN is running (and w/ at least one IP in the policy based routing field), go to a telnet/ssh session, cd to /tmp/openvpncl, and you'll see several files, including openvpn.conf, route-up.sh, and route-down.sh. Post their contents back here (you can block out any personal data). What I can tell though is that the alternate routing table (200) is configured to route traffic over the VPN, while the main/default routing table remains w/ the WAN/ISP. So I assume you used either route-nopull or route-noexec to stop OpenVPN from changing the default gateway from the WAN/ISP to the VPN. Install OpenVPN 2.3.9 or higher on two computers. Make sure the computers are connected over a network. For this recipe, the server computer was running CentOS 6 Linux and OpenVPN 2.3.9 and the client was running Windows 7 64 bit and OpenVPN 2.3.10. We'll use the secret.key file from the OpenVPN secret keys recipe here. Jun 17, 2014 · There’s a difference between ALL traffic using the WAN, vs. SOME traffic using the WAN. Policy based routing w/ the GUI creates a new routing table that contains only the VPN as a default gateway. That’s fine as long as the clients you expect to use the VPN only reference IPs that are only accessible via that default gateway. OpenVPN has been integrated into SoftEther VPN, an open-source multi-protocol VPN server, to allow users to connect to the VPN server from existing OpenVPN clients. OpenVPN is also integrated into Vyos , an open-source routing OS forked from the Vyatta software router. Aug 03, 2018 · I've stopped and started openvpn on both boxes and compared the config logs, on the 9.3 box there is no problem writing to the routing socket and opening a vpn, but the 11.2 box throws up the "GDG: problem writing to routing socket" line and won't start the vpn service.

This is one of OpenVPN's hacks to route traffic through your tunnel while maintaining your default gateway. The 0.0.0.0/1 and 128.0.0.0/1 routes take precedence over the 0.0.0.0/0 route since they are more specific while still matching all addresses. Search for "def1" in the OpenVPN documentation for more detail
