I'm fairly new to OpenVPN but have some networking experience in general
Yesterday and today I have setup OpenVPN on a few different client's Windows servers following the guide here https://community.openvpn.net/openvpn/w ... dows_Guide. I haven't really been able to get it to even ping the server it is installed on without setting it to bridge mode and bridging the TAP adapter and the Ethernet adapter of the server, but doing that seems to let me be able to ping the server.
Yesterday afternoon I was even able to ping other devices on the network over the VPN and setup one of the employees to print into the office printer from home. Today nothing will ping except the server the OpenVPN software is actually running on. This includes both the original server and one more that I bridged the Ethernet adapter in.
I've gone through the config file and tried a few different settings, then reset it and just done what seem to be normal settings and nothing lets me connect to anything except the server.
I've run out of ideas, hoping someone here has run into a similar problem or has some idea where else I can look to trace the problem. Thanks for taking the time to look at this.
