is there any difference between android and windows client ?

Post by saccleo » Tue Nov 27, 2018 3:40 pm

i set up an openvpn server and a web serve in my router. The router has an public ipv4 address and domain name resolved by ddns server.
Because i want to visit the web server via openvpn, the port that the web server listened is not open to wlan.
An options 'redirect-gateway def1' is added to the config file, and then import the same config file to the android and windows 10 openvpn client.

After connect to the openvpn server of the router, the web server can be accessed in an android phone, and domain name, public ip and lan ip all works.
But in windows 10, only lan ip, such as '192.168.1.1' works.

Why same configuration cause diffenent result?
Is there any diffenrence between windows and android client ?

Thanks for any help!

Probably ..

Without these details it is very hard to be sure what is the cause of your issue.

i use traceroute to the web address. In android, only one hope to the destination.
But in windows, except the two hopes, all other are '* * *', until the number came to 30. And can not go to the destination.
* * *
* * *
* * *
i think that all traffic should be go to openvpn server in the router and then through the internal net, then go to out sites.
but the behavior of win is strange.
how to figure out this problem?
