The client and server are in different countries. I can connect without any errors in the logs. I can ping from the server to the client successfully via the VPN network, i.e. on server: ping 10.8.0.6. I can ping from the client to the server successfully via the VPN network, i.e. on client ping 10.8.0.1. However, I can't ping from the client to the server via the server's normal network IP (10.79.79.81) and I can't ping anything else on the server's network, i.e. the gateway/router, or get any internet traffic on the client. The network adapter providing the internet connection to the server has had "Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection" option checked in the adapter Properties->Sharing and set to the server's Tap adapter. The server has had its "Routing and Remote Access" service started and the key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters has had its IPEnableRouter setting set to 1 (defualt is 0).
All firewalls are disabled on the Windows server and client machines and within the router the server connect to the internet through. Port 1194 is forwarded to the server from the router it connects to the internet through. All this worked before the server was updated from Win 7 -> Win 10 ;) Now, the two machines can ping each other via their VPN IP addresses only and do nothing more, any ideas?
