Windows Server 2016: Send all internet through VPN fails

Post by BobAGI » Fri Oct 27, 2017 1:47 pm

Trying to set up OpenVPN 2.4.4.0 On Windows Server 2016
I have the same problem as is described in this thread:
Windows Server 2012/Windows 10: Send all internet through VPN fails
The solution in the thread points to another thread by BeBop (Windows 7 as OpenVPN server with redirect-gateway) and it outlines the way to set up the routing.
However on WS 2016 the crucial step of connecting the Ethernet interface to the tunnel fails:

Code: Select all

Control Panel
Network and Sharing Center
Local Area Connection
Properties
Sharing
Tick the box "Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection"
From the drop-down list select "Local Area Connection 2", or whatever is the connection name
of your TAP server connection.
There is no drop-down list shown anywhere....
So right there the example stops working.
How can this be done on Windows Server 2016?
