Internet access not working after changing IP range

Dear all,

Due to some IP conflicts I had to change the assigned IPs of the clients from a 10.8. to a 172.30. network.
I did this by changing the server directive to

After a restart the new IP address is assigned to the clients, but the clients are not able to call any website.
It almost looks like that the gateway ( is not found. By checking the tun0 on the server, this IP is assigned though.

When I am changing this back to a 10.8. network, it works perfectly.

I have tried this on newly installed OpenVPN clients on Linux and Windows, but it did not work either way.

Do I have to do something on top in order to make this work?
