OpenVPN routing issue

Hello,

I have set up OpenVPN on two Windows 2003 server called X et Y.
Server X is defined as OpenVPN client and belong to network 10.224.58.0 255.255.254.0. Server X IP is 10.224.58.63
Server Y is defined as OpenVPN server and belong to network 10.100.0.0 255.255.0.0. Server Y IP is 10.100.100.100

VPN IP address for Server X (client) is 10.9.0.2. VPN IP address for Server Y is 10.9.0.1

The tunnel is up. I can ping both VPN IP addresses as well as Server X and Server Y IP addresses.

From a PC (10.100.10.10) in network 10.100.0.0, I can ping Server X (OpenVPN client). But I cannot from Server X ping 10.100.10.10.

On the Server Y (OpenVPN server) I have enabled the IPEnableRouter registry.

Windows Firewalls are desactivated.

Any help will be appreciated...

No, the routing interface on Server X is used to determine the source IP address, as that server has more than one (virtual) NIC, and the route into the other network is fixed to the 10.9.0.2 address (by route). That is quite normal that way. If you use a PC on the X network, it will work without that static route.

If this is a problem and you want to propagate full two-side access from servers into network you will have to set the route above on both your default gateways. That way you won't have to define the route on each client.

I solved the issue by adding a static route on the PC (10.100.10.10) --> route add 10.9.0.0 mask 255.255.255.252 10.100.100.100

What I don't understand, is that the source should have been 10.224.59.63 and not 10.9.0.2?
