client subnet servers cannot connect to vpn server network

Post by linuxuser » Mon Dec 20, 2010 4:55 am

I have openvpn setup between my private datacenter (client) and amazon server (server). The setup is fine and the openvpn client server can connect to servers in openvpn server subnet.

I would like to use openvpn client server as the gateway for all servers in that subnet to connect to servers in openvpn server subnet. I have routes in place and I see the traffic reaching the openvpn client server but it does not seem to go through the tunnel but if I try to connect from the openvpn client server, it works fine.

Can anyone help me find what is wrong?

this can be solved by giving the target machine (or its gateway) a route back to the vpn (and/or client lan) subnet
