Client connection not working

Post by Jonso » Mon Jul 27, 2020 9:43 am

Hello everyone, i have a small problem i wish to share with you so that if any of you can help i will be glad. i have a linux server ( server1) which is running on a vpn network , this server is also running client openvpn to established a connection to a server (server2) running on a different vpn.

My problem is , im trying to connect to kafka broker running on server1 from external network and i can not connect to it , the nat rules are well configure to allow the forwarding , the iptables on the server are also well configure after several troubleshoting , i have come to notice that the problem is if i stop the client openvpn on server1 i can connect to kafka broker without any problem but if i run the opvpn client on server1 to access server2 the connection to server1 from external network stop working.

Can someone help me how to resolve this problem.
