PC can't see network devices (but can ping)

Post by Stratos » Fri Jul 05, 2019 1:29 pm

Hey everyone. I have just setup openVPN on my Asus AC68U and I am able to connect to it no problem. The main reason I wanted this is to access my NAS from anywhere where I have internet access. And it kinda works. I can access its web interface, I can ping it, but I can't connect to it (or even see it in explorer under networks) no matter what. However, when I try the same on my android, it works like a charm. I can see all my devices right from the file explorer (x.x.1.1 - router; x.x.1.128 - NAS, x.x.1.174 - Repetier Server) and can connect to them no problem. I can access all directories and read any files.
So, why can I access all my files on android but can't even see the devices on my PC?
Thanks in advance for any ideas.

.ovpn (on both PC and android)

Code: Select all

remote my_public_ip 1194 (I have port forwarding on my router)
proto udp
dev tun
sndbuf 0
rcvbuf 0
keepalive 15 60
comp-lzo adaptive
auth SHA1
cipher AES-128-CBC
ns-cert-type server
and the rest...
