Routing is done by the OS, so in your case windows. When you receive a
packet on one interface (openvpn) and need to forward it to another
(local ethernet), the packet goes through your OS-Networking stack and
this OS needs to be allowed to forward the packet to the other
interface. Usually you would need to active a service to allow the
relaying of the IP-Packets.
