Re: [Openvpn-users] unable to ping either side of network

Sagar,

On the machines you're trying to reach, they need their routing table updated with the
new 10.9.X.X with a gateway to the originating IP address of the machine hosting OpenVPN server.
 
In my case, on a single NIC, the internal IP is 10.0.0.40. I stayed with the 10.8.X.X settings. On
other machines, I added the following line:
route add -net 10.8.0.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 gw 10.0.0.40

Hope that helps. Good luck.

Steve

Hi,

I am a newbie to openvpn and I am trying to set up vpn in my office

I have installed  openvpn (2.1_rc2 ) on Fedora box and trying to connect it from windows XP ( 2.0.9 GUI )

I am not able to ping machines on openvpn-server side from opnvpn-client

Nor am i able to ping openvpn-client from machines on openvpn-server side



My set up is :

192.168.1.4 <---> (eth0) |192.168.1.11  |

                                   | 10.9.9.1        |  (tun0)   -----internet----- (tun1) |   10.9.9.6   |

                                   | External IP    | (eth1)                          (eth1) |External Ip|

                                   ============                                    =============

                                    Openvpn server                                   Openvpn-client



I am able to ping from openvpn-server to openvpn-client and vice-versa

However I m not able to ping from 192.168.1.4 to 10.9.9.6 (or vice-versa)

I tried a tcpdump for ping from 192.168.1.4 on eth0 of openvpn-server

I could find the icmp-request being recvd,

however nothing on tun0

also

I tried

iptables -A INPUT -i tun+ -j ACCEPT

iptables -A FORWARD -i tun+ -j ACCEPT



But even this did not help



Cud some  one pl tell me wht is wrong or am I missing something





- Sagar
