Re: [Openvpn-users] Strange problem...



Title: Re: [Openvpn-users] Strange problem...
OK, if it's a firewall issue, how do I fix it?
 
The OpenVPN FAQ says to enter these commands which I have done:
 
# Allow TUN interface connections to OpenVPN server
iptables -A INPUT -i tun+ -j ACCEPT
 
# Allow TUN interface connections to be forwarded through other interfaces iptables -A FORWARD -i tun+ -j ACCEPT
 
# Allow TAP interface connections to OpenVPN server
iptables -A INPUT -i tap+ -j ACCEPT
 
# Allow TAP interface connections to be forwarded through other interfaces iptables -A FORWARD -i tap+ -j ACCEPT
 
There is no hardware firewall in the way that I know of.  I wouldn't expect to get an 'Operation not permitted' message if it was a hardware firewall either.
 
Thanks in advance for the help!
