Use OpenVPN to tunnel from LAN to client

Postby lug-ovpn » Mon Feb 27, 2017 4:48 pm

Hi,

I have a root server with openvz. (debian 7)
On that server are many virtual servers which are in their own local network 10.0.0.0/24

So I create a new VM with the IP 10.0.0.254 and installed openvpn on it, so when a client connects to it, the client shall have full access to 10.0.0.0/24

But that doesn't really work, if I connect to from my windows 10 machine to the openvpn server I lose my connection to the internet and I dont have access to the 10.0.0.0/24 network.

The strange thing is, when I connect from my android phone, I have internet access, but cant resolve domains, even if I specify a DNS in the server.conf, the client wont get that information..

what am i doing wrong?

server.conf:

Code: Select all

port 1194
proto udp
dev tun
sndbuf 0
rcvbuf 0
ca ca.crt
cert server.crt
key server.key
dh dh.pem
tls-auth ta.key 0
topology subnet
server 10.8.0.0 255.255.255.0
ifconfig-pool-persist ipp.txt
#push "redirect-gateway def1 bypass-dhcp" //
#push "dhcp-option DNS 8.8.8.8" //
#push "dhcp-option DNS 8.8.4.4" //i played around with these options, nothing changes
keepalive 10 120
cipher AES-256-CBC
comp-lzo
user nobody
group nogroup
persist-key
persist-tun
status openvpn-status.log
verb 3
crl-verify crl.pem


client-common.txt:

Code: Select all

client
dev tun
proto udp
sndbuf 0
rcvbuf 0
remote serverspublicip 1194
resolv-retry infinite
nobind
persist-key
persist-tun
remote-cert-tls server
cipher AES-256-CBC
comp-lzo
setenv opt block-outside-dns
key-direction 1
verb 3


output of ipconfig under windows:

Code: Select all

Ethernet-Adapter Ethernet 3:

   Verbindungsspezifisches DNS-Suffix:
   Verbindungslokale IPv6-Adresse  . : who cares
   IPv4-Adresse  . . . . . . . . . . : 10.8.0.2
   Subnetzmaske  . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
   Standardgateway . . . . . . . . . :

it's german but i think everyone can understand it.

Google translate is your friend ..

We prefer English.

Do you really need a translation for "IPv4-Adresse", "Standardgateway" and "Subnetzmaske"?

Ok, here you go: IPv4-Adress, (standard) gateway, subnet mask

I know the basics of openvpn, but your answer is 0% helpful.
Tell somebody to read 1500 lines is not going to solve the problem.

For example I will not find any information there why

Code: Select all

push "dhcp-option DNS 8.8.8.8"

is not working

Nein, das hast du nicht ... weil du das Howto nicht gelesen hast.

Wenn du das Howto nicht liest, wie weißt du, dass es nicht helfen wird?

Was meinen Sie "not working" ?

It seems like your not paying attention on my question(s), so I thinkt the best thing is to go somewhere else, where people are willing to help.
And why the hell are you using google translator to speak to me in german? I never asked for that, all I see here is a legit troll, from the first answer on.
