Unable to access LAN when connected to VPN

Postby INeedHelpYo » Thu Jun 15, 2017 4:22 pm

Hello, I am having trouble with accessing the LAN when I am connected to my raspberrypi running the OpenVPN software.

I am using the raspberry pi 3 with the latest Jessie LITE image to host the OpenVPN software. The client is running the latest version of windows 10 and is using the community downloads provided client openvpn-install-2.4.2 found here: https://openvpn.net/index.php/open-source/downloads.html.

My goal is to be able to connect the client to the VPN server so that I can access and interact and LAN with the network that the VPN is attached to.

When I am connected to the VPN from an external network, I am able to ping the VPN host itself as well as the client pc; however cannot ping other devices on the network. The windows network manager client shows that the device has internet access, but it does not allow LAN communication which was the whole point of having this VPN.

I'd appreciate any help on the matter. Below are my Client and Server config files as well as the openvpn.log and client log (Note, openvpn.log and client log too long for post...posted link to online viewer)
