OpenVPN Client and windows 8

Post by newone88 » Sun Jul 16, 2017 2:36 pm

Hi,
I'm new to this and thought might ask for help here.
I step an openvpn server on my TP link router and generated the necessary configuration file.
I installed the openvpn client on my windows 8 laptop and my iphone and ipad.
I imported the configuration file to all 3 devices.

On my Iphone and Ipad, I can successfully connect to my VPN and I can browse the local network and I can access the internet as well with no problems so far.

On my windows 8 laptop, I can connect to the VPN fine but I can't reach the local network and I can't access the the internet. I'm logged in as an administrator and I ran the VPN GUI client as an administrator as well. I feel that there is a step i'm not doing and it seems as all the routes are not being added and that is why I can't reach the internal network of the VPN and can't access the internet from the VPN.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

You are using openvpn 2.4.3 so you don't need to run with administrator privileges any more.

This actually means there is already an entry in the routing table for the route you are trying to add .. my guess would be 192.168.0.0/24 .. if you posted your log at --verb 4 we would know.

And your server log at --verb 4 and your server and client config files.

Got this working finally after I disabled IPV6 from the adapter.
Cheers
