OpenVPN with local Internet for Clients

Post by sumitsrjhs » Thu Jan 27, 2022 9:19 am

Hi

I am installed OpenVPN Server on ubuntu 18.04
Its working fine. My problem is that i don't want to use Server's Internet bandwidth to the clients.

Clients should use their own internet bandwidth while working with VPN.
Please suggest

My Server configuration is

Server Config

port 1194
proto udp
dev tun
user nobody
group nogroup
persist-key
persist-tun
keepalive 10 120
topology subnet
server 10.8.0.0 255.255.255.0
ifconfig-pool-persist ipp.txt
push "dhcp-option DNS 8.8.8.8"
push "dhcp-option DNS 8.8.4.4"
push "redirect-gateway def1 bypass-dhcp"
dh none
ecdh-curve prime256v1
tls-crypt tls-crypt.key
crl-verify crl.pem
ca ca.crt
cert server_C6AObMPKYikooCsP.crt
key server_C6AObMPKYikooCsP.key
auth SHA256
cipher AES-128-GCM
ncp-ciphers AES-128-GCM
tls-server
tls-version-min 1.2
tls-cipher TLS-ECDHE-ECDSA-WITH-AES-128-GCM-SHA256

Hi Sum,

Why are you pushing --redirect-gateway if you don't want to redirect the gateway?

Did you not follow the official HOWTO?
