Your virtual IP address (the one normally assigned by the OpenVPN server) is available from your internal network, given that you have setup routing correctly.

If you can't reach it from the internal network, then there's probably a firewall blocking the access.

If you want other OpenVPN clients to reach services on your machine, you need to enable client to client communication in the OpenVPN server with the --client-to-client option.
