Is that possible to run one instance of OpenVPN 2.0 and use it as Server to a couple of road-warriors and at the same time subnet to subnet with another Server? I do not know how to specify subnet to subnet in 2.0. Could anybody help me or give me a sample config?


My current 2.0 server.conf is something like that

# Which local IP address should OpenVPN
port 5000
proto udp
dev tun0
ca ca.crt
cert my_server.crt
key my_server.key
push "route"

and it works with road-warriors. Now I would like to add some settings so that my 192.168.2.x can talk to subnet 10.9.9.x behind another VPN server.

Yes, this is possible.

I'm not 100% about how to configure it, but here's some tips so start with at least.

In the server config, add "client-config-dir xxx" so you can create a unique config for that perticular client that has the subnet behind him.

Then create a file names as the CommonName of this client in the client-config-dir and add:


If you want your roadwarriors to reach this subnet to, you should add a push route for this subnet in your main server config. You must also add "client-to-client".

You should also add a route in your O/S on the openvpn server for the network. I think you should route this to I'm a little uncertain about that...

Apart from this, the "other server" should be configured just like a road warrior client.

Good Luck!
