    VPN Woes


    Hello,

    I am trying to setup my home grown Debian server as a VPN server. It has 2 interfaces, one of them (eth0) has a range of WAN IPs and the other (eth1) has a single LAN IP. I am listening openvpn on one of the WAN IPs and logs say I am connecting to it fine...

    Mon Sep 3 10:37:49 2007 Peer Connection Initiated with 80.229.**.**:1194
    Mon Sep 3 10:37:49 2007 Initialization Sequence Completed
    I am connecting to it using the openvpn client on my laptop. The laptop's tunnel adaptor gets assigned an IP in the 192.168.0.0/24 range of my local network (192.168.0.202) and the server's tunnel adaptor gets assigned another (192.168.0.201). However, I can ping neither the server's tunnel adaptor nor any IP behind eth1 of the server (e.g. 192.168.0.1).

    Does anyone know how this issue could be solved?


    Kind regards

    Phil

    Can we get you to run the following commands on the laptop with the openvpn connection running.

    Code:
    ifconfig
    route -n
    ping 192.168.0.201
    ping 192.168.0.1
    And paste the output here. This should help us diagnose the problem.
