WHS as internet gateway with Open VPN anonymisation service

Post by Klaus F » Sat Nov 26, 2011 2:32 pm

Hi,

I use a WHS 2003 as an internet gateway for my home network. On the WHS a OpenVPN-Client is working which opens a VPN tunnel to the anonymisation service TUVPN.com. My goal is making the anonymous IP address available for all my clients using the TUVPN account on my WHS. All clients shall use the same anonymous IP address.

This is my network: http://img40.imageshack.us/img40/1640/networkzc.jpg

RRAS is enables on the WHS and NAT is working fine. All clients have internet access. The problem is that as soon as I start OpenVPN on the WHS the tunnel is built up on the WHS properly and whatismyipaddress.com shows that the internet IP address of the WHS is anonymous BUT all clients stop having internet access. A ping to 192.168.1.1 and 192.168.2.1 works ok but 77.92.78.50 doesn't work.

My OpenVPN start file:

Hi,

after 4 weeks of 'headache' I am not any step further. Due to my frustration I installed WHS 2011 - but no succest. The same here. As soon as I start OpenVPN on the WHS the tunnel is built up to the TUVPN network but all clients in my private network stop having internet access.

I have the feeling that there are routes missing which but I'm not sure. Where are the network experts?

Regards

WHS 2011
Where did you get it?

Show the output of ipconfig /all.
