I have these deny statements in my iptables log:

RULE 12 -- DENY IN=tun0 OUT=eth1 MAC= SRC= DST= LEN=84 TOS=0x00 PREC=0
x00 TTL=63 ID=0 DF PROTO=ICMP TYPE=8 CODE=0 ID=20001 SEQ=1 

Here is my iptables FORWARD table

target     prot opt source               destination         
           all  --         /* Allows VPN IPs to connect to computer */

not sure why iptables is blocking it.... any ideas?

As always, Thanks all!

My iptable rule was missing the -j ACCEPT parameter.


`-j ACCEPT` 

fixed the issue.
