I have installed an OpenVPN server + client, the server is windows xp and the client is slackware 12 linux. I set up the first tunnel, test it, ping the machines from each side and saw it's working.
Now I am trying to route the internet traffic (+Web browsing) through the VPN tunnel, so I did just like in the OpenVPN howto, but it doesn't seem to work.
I tried push redirect-gateway/redirect-gateway def1 etc. etc. but it doesn't route the traffic through the server.
Here is the server's config:
remote xxx dev tun tun-mtu 1500 ifconfig 10.3.0.1 10.3.0.2 secret key.txt ping 10 comp-lzo verb 4 mute 10 push "redirect-gateway def1"
In the howto there is: " The server will need to be configured to deal with this traffic somehow, such as by NATing it to the internet, or routing it through the server site's HTTP proxy." - Is this the problem ? Or it is sommething with the routings (i don't know nothing about adding routes and their usage). Please help me somehow.
