Connected but cannot ping

Post by dront10 » Tue Nov 10, 2020 12:39 am

I am creating my own GUI to connect to the companies VPN. The problem I am facing is that even though I get the message "Initialization Sequence Completed" and the routing table is set up, I am still not able to ping the server.

Client config

dev-type tap
dev-node LedVPN_0
client
;dev tap
dev tun
;dev-node MyTap
;proto tcp
proto udp
remote vpn.ledinek.com 1194
;remote my-server-2 1194
;remote-random
resolv-retry infinite
nobind
;mtu-test
;user nobody
;group nobody
persist-key
persist-tun
;http-proxy-retry # retry on connection failures
;http-proxy [proxy server] [proxy port #]
;mute-replay-warnings
ca "ca-vpn-ledinek-com.crt"
cert "client-vpn-ledinek-com.crt"
key "client-vpn-ledinek-com.key"
tls-auth ta-vpn-ledinek-com.key 1
cipher AES-256-CBC
verb 3
;mute 20
auth-user-pass passfile.txt
management 127.0.0.1

Code: Select all

Management interface reply:

I know the routing table is set up correctly because when I connect through the OpenVPN GUI, I am able to ping the server and the routing tables from the OpenVPN GUI and from the Custom GUI I'm making are the same.

Been stuck on this point for a couple of weeks now.

to be honest, I'm basically doing this in my free time for fun and don't get paid for it. The OpenVPN GUI works perfectly fine, I just wanted to make it a little bit more user friendly for out purpose and more about OpenVPN and C#.

Laser like focus .....


Start with the Howto. Also see the github repo for openvpn and the GUI.

there is no ip address on the virtual card , can you check it first . if you setting up tap it will full of broadcast and slow down everything . if for personal is ok but the more Pc you add in the more it will be slow downs and cant use ,setting tap quite trouble getting ip address so try to find it out
