Connected to VPN but IP address not changing on Windows 10

Postby DMann421 » Sat Jun 17, 2017 2:16 am

Hello,

I've done a bit of googling and saw that a few people have had this issue in the past, however, none of them had working solutions.
I've setup an OpenVPN Server on my home router (ASUS RT-AC66U) and when I connect to it from my laptop, my IP address does not change to what it should be.

I do have OpenVPN GUI set to run as an administrator.

Any suggestions?

Edit: For clarity, what I'm trying to do is use my router's built in VPN to connect my laptop to my router when I'm out of town and have it show as my home IP address.

Hi Damann

I you resolved this yet. I'm using Asus 88U and have same issue.
Client connects to VPN and given a 10.0.8.2 address but not pushed through to my LAN subnet 192.168.2.0

Found many posts with this issue but no published fix ?
