Share Files on Windows 10 OpenVPN

Post by nikolaiortiz » Wed Apr 18, 2018 3:10 pm

Helo,
I´m using OpenVPN 2.4.5 for windows.
My goal is to share files from my personal PC, I dont need to share internert. I got Windows 10 on it, and is going to be the openVPN server.
the client will be some laptos and they are running on W10.
The server config its:

Code: Select all

port 1194
proto udp
dev tun
ca "C:\\Program Files\\OpenVPN\\config\\ca.crt"
cert "C:\\Program Files\\OpenVPN\\config\\server.crt"
key "C:\\Program Files\\OpenVPN\\config\\server.key"  # This file should be kept secret
dh "C:\\Program Files\\OpenVPN\\config\\dh2048.pem"
topology subnet
server 10.8.0.0 255.255.255.0
ifconfig-pool-persist ipp.txt
keepalive 10 120
cipher AES-256-CBC
persist-key
persist-tun
status openvpn-status.log
verb 3
explicit-exit-notify 1
the client:

Code: Select all

client
dev tun
proto udp
remote xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx 1194
resolv-retry infinite
nobind
persist-key
persist-tun
ca "C:\\Program Files\\OpenVPN\\config\\ca.crt"
cert "C:\\Program Files\\OpenVPN\\config\\xxx-laptop.crt"
key "C:\\Program Files\\OpenVPN\\config\\xxx-laptop.key"
remote-cert-tls server
cipher AES-256-CBC
verb 3
I added the ip 10.8.0.0/24 to the file sharing (SMB) firewall rule in the client and in the server, and a rule for the UDP port.
And everything works fine. But after a W10 update the problems began.
after that update I could not see anymore the shared files so:
I added a gateway in the server connection, gateway 10.8.0.2 so I could make the TAP/TUN adapter a private connection.
after that i could make ping from client to server and viceversa.
I could not see the shared files.
After that I turn off the firewall for the TAP/TUN adapter (ethernet 2) was the name in my case.
So I disable the firewall in the client and also in the server
I could not see the shared files of the server from the client... But I can see the shared files of the client from the server :?:
So finally, I read the :
https://community.openvpn.net/openvpn/w ... wsBrowsing

I'm trying to reach the connected PC using the IP (e.g. \\10.8.0.1\\shared) so I understand I don't need to use a DNS (local or Remote) and a WINS.
So I a little stock here.
I would appreciate some help.

thanks a lot.

Sounds like you have not turned the firewall off completely .. try that.

Hi..
I Finally made the test, turn off Windows firewall, full turn off, and nothing hanppens
I still can see the client files from the server, but I cant see the server files from the client.
I made a ping to the server and:

Code: Select all

C:\Users\user>ping -f -l 1024 10.8.0.1

Haciendo ping a 10.8.0.1 con 1024 bytes de datos:
Respuesta desde 10.8.0.1: bytes=1024 tiempo=78ms TTL=128
Respuesta desde 10.8.0.1: bytes=1024 tiempo=70ms TTL=128
Respuesta desde 10.8.0.1: bytes=1024 tiempo=39ms TTL=128
Respuesta desde 10.8.0.1: bytes=1024 tiempo=57ms TTL=128

Estadísticas de ping para 10.8.0.1:
    Paquetes: enviados = 4, recibidos = 4, perdidos = 0
    (0% perdidos),
Tiempos aproximados de ida y vuelta en milisegundos:
    Mínimo = 39ms, Máximo = 78ms, Media = 61ms


from the client this is the log:
