Acer Chromebook OVPN Client -- can't ping, route, etc.

Post by VeryScaryBob » Fri Jun 02, 2017 7:19 pm

Hello, using OVPN client at work on Windows PC to access LAN at home via ASUS router -- works fine -- I connect directly to a server at home with remote LAN address (192.168.2.55 for example).

BUT when I configured OVPN on my new Acer Chromebook -- it connects to remote LAN (router), but I can't even ping 192.168.2.1 in crosh as I can on my Windows PC at work. What steps can I use to debug further? Thanks.

Is that a question for me? What other info might you need?

It seems like there is some config I'm not doing right on the Chromebook (although there are not many things I can change on the Chromebook side). What I can reiterate is that my Asus router supports Open VPN and works great from Windows clients but when I split up the OVPN config file and feed it to my Chromebook, I successfully connect to my home LAN but can no longer get to either local resources or those on the other side of the VPN (the devices, including the router, on my home network). Thanks.
