i have set up openvpn, and it works. pinging from client to server and backwards works just fine. but now i wanted to redirect all the clients traffic through the vpn. so i did the following steps as mentioned in the docs.
in server.conf i put push "redirect-gateway def1"
and i enabled routing via iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -s 10.8.0.0/24 -o eth0 -j MASQUERADE
actually nothing, server does it all for the client, i start it on win7 with: openvpn.exe --config client.ovpn
now my routing table looks like this, Realtek is my physical network interface card and the physical gateway is 192.168.2.1. My pc's ip is 192.168.2.199:
When using "push redirect-gateway" instead in the server.conf it looks like that:
Both are not working, what am i doing wrong? I can't ping the gateway 10.8.0.5, but the vpn can't either ping it's gateway. I can ping vpn 10.8.0.1.
What i dont understand is, what the heck is the gateway 10.8.0.5?
