Clients cannot ping each other

Post by fyiuser » Wed Dec 08, 2021 5:34 pm

Hello!

I use OpenVPN server on my ubuntu machine in cloud.
I have tested the connection between different clients, clients cannot ping each other. Server can ping clients, clients can ping server.

Everything is working fine using different OpenVPN server with the same configurations, I can not determine what is the issue. Could you please suggest what can cause this issue?

Server Firewall.

Openvpn provide --client-to-client, which allows client to see each other and by-passes your server firewall (You may prefer to setup your server firewall correctly, instead).
