Routing between OpenVPN server and client

Post by alexsher91 » Mon Jul 20, 2020 7:39 am

Hello! Help set up routing between server and client.

Office:
Windows Server 2012 R2 (Server)
IP 192.168.2.1 255.255.255.0
VPN 10.8.0.1 255.255.255.0

Home: Windows 7 (Client)
IP: 192.168.0.101 255.255.255.0
VPN: 10.8.0.6 255.255.255.0

At the moment, pings only take place on the 10.8.0.0 network
I can't get from the client to the local network behind the server, and vice versa.
I ask for help, I am setting up for the first time.

You need iprouting and NAT on your server so client can go to internet and ping server subnet lan

Going this one and try to sort your server

The server acts as a gateway.
The Internet comes to him (2.135 .... 138)
Next comes the distribution to 192.168.2.0/255.255.255.0
In the settings of the network adapter, the checkbox "Allow other network users to use the Internet connection" is already checked. But I have a different connection selected in the list.

You need take time to read and do the same win 7 as win10 so when you ve done iprouting and NAT it will work for you
