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...

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?
