Hi, I setup openvpn server mode in a windows 11 Pro.

Is working, a client can connect to the machine which is the plan, but we can reach the server only by his ovpn IP:

Network vpn tunnel:

My remote client receive
my windows box server: and lan ip

I can reach the server by they ovpn ip

But I cannot reach the box by their LAN IP

I add the parameter in the server config:

push "route"

But no luck yet.

Some could point if this is possible, windows 11 pro is not my network firewall is behind one, I would like to reach the machine using his lan IP, if is possible what I miss from the config or a extra step in my windows 11 pro ovpn server :?:

Running latest version 2.6.6

did you enable Routing on server ?

Furthermore > to access PC's on same subnet with the server via OpenVPN (say from home !) you will need to ADD a persistent route on EACH machine that you plan to reach via that openvpn server.
