I am trying to setup an OpenVPN site to site between site A(Server-Merlin) and site B(Client DD-WRT). The tunnel comes up and both peers are able to ping each other but when anyone on the client subnet(10.1.30.0/24) tries to ping any host on the server side(10.1.10.0/24) packets are being dropped by the server since the server doesn't know how to get to client's subnet even after adding the route. Here are the configs:

What is weird is that on the client side the tun device has an IP of 172.16.254.6 while the gateway is 172.16.254.5 and on the server side the IP is 172.16.254.1 and the tun IP is 172.16.254.2. On the server side I can't ping 172.16.254.2 but I can ping the tun IP of the client(172.16.254.6) and vice versa on the client side I can't ping 172.16.254.5 which is the gateway but I can ping 172.16.254.1.

I tried adding a route to 10.1.30.0(Client LAN) on the server using the ip 172.16.254.6 but it will only let me map it to 172.16.254.2

I even ran a tcpdump on both routers and turns out the packets from LAN on server side aren't even getting to the client router.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

I resolved this by adding the following lines in my config

route 10.1.30.0 255.255.255.0

push "route 10.1.10.0 255.255.255.0"

push "route 10.1.30.0 255.255.255.0"

and added the following lines for my client in the CCD folder

less /tmp/etc/openvpn/server1/ccd/CALPHA

iroute 10.1.30.0 255.255.255.0
