VPN connect to server from lan-IP (client) to the public-IP (server) in LAN

Post by jokantor » Tue Jun 04, 2019 3:42 pm

The intention is having portable devices such us laptops and phones that can easily connect to the network the vpn server locates on the front of the network as a gateway contains two network cards (wlan/public-IP and lan/local-IP).
I have a small problem with firewall (iptables) regarding vpn connection. All the configuration works fine as long as i can user following scenarios settings:
Connect from public-IP (client) to public-IP (server)
no problems
Connect from lan-IP (clinet) to lan-IP (server). All local IP's
no problems
Connect form lan-IP (client) to public-IP (server). From local IP to the same local network but via public IP.
following error:

Code: Select all

openvpn.log contains:
Tue Jun  4 15:39:21 2019 TLS Error: incoming packet authentication failed from [AF_INET]
Tue Jun  4 15:39:22 2019 Authenticate/Decrypt packet error: bad packet ID (may be a replay): [ #1 / time = (1559659157) Tue Jun  4 15:39:17 2019 ] -- see the man page entry for --no-replay and --replay-window for more info or silence this warning with --mute-replay-warnings

I am sure is a simple way of dealing with the problem
