Cant access devices behind VPN Server

Post by lankylad » Tue Jun 30, 2020 12:54 pm

I have set up a VPN service on my Netgear Nighthawk R7000 wireless router.

I have also setup an OpenVPN client on my laptop and I can successfully connect to the R7000 and access the devices behind it.

I have now tried to set up the equivalent on my iPhone (IOS 13.5.1) using the OpenVPN App (V3.2.0 3253)

The iPhone connects OK and the OpenVPN App is showing a successful connection and data transfer. That's the good news. The bad news is that I cant connect to any devices behind the R7000.

Other interesting observations while the OpenVPN App is connected:

1. The IP Address of the R7000 is 10.0.0.1 and I can ping this from my iPhone.
2. The "Your Private IP" in the OpenVPN App is 192.168.254.2? I can ping this address from devices behind the R7000
3. The iPhone is not showing up as a device on the R7000

I'm confused!
