Windows/Android Client; accessing ips and hostname over VPN

Post by ericarthurc » Wed Mar 14, 2018 9:40 pm

Hey so I am having an issue with my Windows client. When I connect to the vpn server I can't access certain devices on the network and I cant access things with there hostname; like \\nas etc.. I can access it through \\192.168.1.11 for example. Through a browser I can't access my router 192.168.1.1 while on a windows client. But on my Android phone using the same .ovpn files I can put 192.168.1.1 in my browser and access my router.. I am at a lost.

Here is the settings on my .ovpn file:

dev tun
tls-client

remote "my ip" "my port"
redirect-gateway def1
dhcp-option DNS 192.168.1.1
pull
script-security 2
comp-lzo
reneg-sec 0
cipher AES-256-CBC
auth SHA256
auth-user-pass

Thanks in advance!

Sorry but this isn't an Access Server config. Try one of the other sub forums here that deal with the open source openvpn program.

Also, you need DNS or such for this to work.
