Unable to access resources on network

Post by jarmar » Fri Dec 25, 2020 7:20 pm

I have OpenVPN server running on my Edge Router and OpenVPN Connect on my cell phone. I am able to connect to the server and can ping all devices on my home network. If I try to access my WIndows10 computer with Remote Desktop on my Android or my Synology NAS with Chrome it will not work. I am able to connect to my Linux server with SSH on my cell phone and am able to connect to my Windows computer with TightVNC. When I disconnect the VPN and connect my cell phone to my home WIFI everything works fine. Also if I run OpenVPN client on a Windows computer with the same client config everything works fine. I was thinking it was an issue with my firewall rules on my router but since everything works fine with OpenVPN on a PC that tells me that the firewall is not the issue. Any assistance in debugging the issue would be appreciated. Here is my client config file:

#This is laptop config
Client config

dev tun
proto udp4
remote xx.xx.xx.xx xxxx
resolv-retry infinite
remote-cert-tls server
reneg-sec 0
compress lz4-v2

cipher AES-256-CBC
auth SHA256
key-direction 1
