Establish a VPN connection through another VPN client device

Post by DeltaSim » Mon Aug 19, 2019 6:55 am

Hello,

I want to set two VPN tunnels on two different devices but only one has an internet connection.

Image
Device 1 is a Wi-Fi access point.

The Red VPN connexion works fine but I can not establish the 2nd VPN connection.

When the Device 1 is connected to the VPN I can't even ping the VPN Server from Device 2 but when the VPN is off on Device 1, I can ping the server from Device 2.

I assume that it's a matter of openvpn configuration but I haven't find the good one..

How can I fix it?

Thank you :)

It's generally not possible to run two different VPN Client programs on the same host simultaneously. Conceptually this is possible, but in practice, different vendor's VPN Clients tend to step on each other.
