My current setup involves an openVPN server with a single network interface and a client on another network that acts as router for a specific LAN. My goal is to enable forwarding of LAN traffic through the VPN.
The router of the LAN is the one connecting to the openVPN server through its public interface.
- openVPN net: 10.8.1.0/24
- internal network: 192.168.10.0/24

Right now I'm not pushing yet the default gateway: I'm doing tests adding single IPs to the routing table. On the client:
route add 18.104.22.168 gw 10.8.1.5 tun1
(again, the client is actually a router for a LAN)
If I am on the client itself, I can see with
traceroute that packets go through the VPN. However if I try to access the same IP from the clients, nothing goes through. a tcpdump on the VPN interface on the server shows:
# tcpdump -n -i tun0 tcpdump: verbose output suppressed, use -v or -vv for full protocol decode listening on tun0, link-type RAW (Raw IP), capture size 65535 bytes 00:25:13.267823 IP MY_INTERNAL_IP > 22.214.171.124: ICMP echo request, id 3607, seq 11, length 64
And nothing goes through.
Compare this when I do stuff directly on the client:
00:28:10.277901 IP OPENVPN_CLIENT_IP > 126.96.36.199: ICMP echo request, id 5243, seq 1, length 64 00:28:10.365054 IP 188.8.131.52 > OPENVPN_CLIENT_IP: ICMP echo reply, id 5243, seq 1, length 64
I also have set
iroute 192.168.10.0 255.255.255.0 in my
ccd dir for the client. However I can't route traffic from the LAN through the VPN, presumably because the server doesn't know how to send data back to them.
What am I missing to perform this? I have full access on the server and on the client/router. The server runs CentOS 6.5 and the client/router Debian Squeeze.
