[Solved iptables] Cannot connect to internet - VPN connects

Post by UF8FF » Thu Jan 07, 2016 7:34 pm

Greetings everyone,

I have been really trying to figure out a solution but I can't really find one apparently tailored to my exact situation. So my VPN connects just fine (running off of a raspberrypi) but once I am connected I can no longer connect to the internet and Tunnelblick (3.5.5) states
After connecting to client, the Internet does not appear to be reachable.

I removed my firewall just for testing purposes to see if that was the issue but I haven’t been able to connect still.
I found a few things from adding a cipher to setting the nameserver to topic14286.html and I have yet to find a solution so I am here to ask for some help. Maybe I'm missing something completely obvious, I don't know, but I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction. Thank you!


Here's all the info I have. Please ask if anything else is needed.

I wish it were that easy! haha, I used my public IP there. One thing I did notice was in my server.conf I had server 10.8.0.0... so I changed it to phungyou 10.8.0.0 and that seemed to fix it!

Worked great for a bit, and then I tried to connect via my hotspot on my phone and it says "TLS failed" and after doing route flush I cannot connect anymore at all and get TLS failures. whoops.

That was what i thought :geek:

The correct iptables command would be:

Code: Select all

iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -s 10.8.0.0/24 -o eth0 -j MASQUERADE

I knew I did something dumb! You have been a great help so far. I was able to connect on my local network but unable to connect over WAN and I'm sure my NAT is why. I've purged everything and I'm starting fresh again and will use the above command for NAT this time around. I'll report back if that fixes my original issue or not so we can mark this as solved!

You are welcome .. thanks for letting us know 8-)

Note For OpenVPN running on OpenVZ Container:
  • Because of OpenVZ masquerade does not work use this instead:

    Code: Select all

    iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -s 10.8.0.0/24 -j SNAT --to-source Real.Server.public.ip.address
