Why am I not able to 'ping through' the VPN server from the VPN client
side to the workgroup on the other side of the VPN Server? I am also
unable to PING from the Workgroup to the VPN clients?
Do I have to enable 'proxy ARP' on Windows XP?
Do I have to explicitly enable specific routing protocols on the
Windows XP router?
Do I have to add routes manually? (If so, which ones? Ping does work
from the VPN server to the workgroup, and ping does
work from the VPN server to the VPN clients)
What am I missing?
I got into this while trying to use a openvpn client as a router for a
local subnet. The solution was enabling ip forwarding
in windows xp. "routing and remote access" service didn't solve the
problem. So, in order to activate it, launch regedit and
set IPEnableRouter to 1
Reboot your box and you're done (at least I hope so ;-) ).
