Hi everyone,

I have openvpn on Pfsense configured and client is connecting to the destination network however, I'm only able to connect to 3 machines out of 50. also browser don't have Internet but the PC does.

The remote and client machines have the same subnet however, I tried connecting on 3G using guizmo openvpn on iPhone but the same thing happens, and connecting my computer with 3G but to no avail.

Could anyone direct me to where is  the problem and why 3 IPs only are connecting ?

Provide your settings for OpenVPN server with a screenshot. I use pfsense at some sites and when properly configured I didn't have any problems.

I figured it out, basically I have one Pfsense at work with OPENVPN setup and in the office network there are 50 virtual servers! I wanna be able to connect to these servers.

After I changed one of the Virtual server's gateway to Pfsene's local IP, the VPN client could see that virtual server and ping it and connect to it..

 I have added to those machines the following route command and it seems to solve the issue! I don't need to change the gateway of the machine for the openvpn client to see it anymore..

netsh interface ipv4 add route "Local Area Connection"
netsh interface ipv4 add route "Local Area Connection"

thanks for the contribution.
