    OpenVPN routing


    Hi there, I'm using Suse Linux 10.1 and I'm trying to connect to a server behind a firewall using OpenVPN. My client is KVPNC.
    I can successfully establish the connection, but I can't ping the remote server. I suppose the problem is the routing.
    I need some help, please.

    The routing is set to be substituted by the VPN server, so once I connect it changes from

    Kernel IP routing table
    Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
    192.168.1.0 * 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth1
    loopback * 255.0.0.0 U 0 0 0 lo
    default home.gateway 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 eth1

    to
    Kernel IP routing table
    Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
    host-80-74-186- home.gateway 255.255.255.255 UGH 0 0 0 eth1
    192.168.0.82 192.168.200.5 255.255.255.255 UGH 0 0 0 tun0
    192.168.200.1 192.168.200.5 255.255.255.255 UGH 0 0 0 tun0
    192.168.200.5 * 255.255.255.255 UH 0 0 0 tun0
    192.168.1.0 * 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth1
    loopback * 255.0.0.0 U 0 0 0 lo
    default 192.168.200.5 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 tun0


    at this point, If I try to ping 192.168.0.82

    --- 192.168.0.82 ping statistics ---
    38 packets transmitted, 0 received, 100% packet loss, time 37036ms

    same thing for trace route
    traceroute -n 192.168.0.82
    traceroute to 192.168.0.82 (192.168.0.82), 30 hops max, 40 byte packets
    1 * * *
    2 * * *
    3 * * *
    4 * * *

    6 * * *


    Any help?
    Thanks in advance
