I've got an .ovpn file from my VPN provider and using openvpn-client and the provided .ovpn file I am able to connect to their VPN.

When connected I can access the jail from other computers or jails in the same subnet. However when I try to access the jail from a different private subnet I cannot connect. i.e.:

  • jail with OpenVPN client at can be accessed from another jail at
  • jail with OpenVPN client at cannot be accessed from computer

I'm pretty new to OpenVPN, is there a client config I can change in the .ovpn file? I don't have access to the OpenVPN server config.

ifconfig output from jail with OpenVPN client:
