Ive finally got round to using openvpn to route my network via an American
server Ive built. I decided not to host my daughters minecraft server on
this server. I simply want to push all my home network traffic over
openvpn to America so I can get US shows on my apple tv box.
So Ive done the following:
1) Connected my odroid via openvpn to America.
2) Made the odroid the default gateway for my router.
3) route add -net 192.168.0.0/24 gw 192.168.200.12 (200.12 is my openvpn
However I have a few issues:
1) if I do cat /tmp/openvpn-status.log it brings up a list of connected
clients, however rather than showing the odroids ip address it shows its
2e:71:7a:d1:51:f1,odroid,126.96.36.199:56942,Fri Jun 13 10:20:52 2014
Now I had to change the openvpn server config from using tun to tap to get
the route add to work. Im just not sure if I needed to do anything else
apart from change tun to tap on my server and client config?
There is an entry for persist-tun in the openvpn.conf on the server. Do I
need to change this to persist-tap? I cant seem to find info on this?
2) Could it be that the status log showing the client as a mac address
rather than an ip address be the issue that's causing my home network not
to be able to get out onto the internet via the vpn?
Heres my openvpn.conf on the server side
server 192.168.200.0 255.255.255.0
push "redirect-gateway def1"
push "dhcp-option DOMAIN .....name.co.uk removed"
push "dhcp-option DNS 188.8.131.52"
route 192.168.1.0 255.255.255.0
push "route 192.168.1.0 255.255.255.0"
keepalive 10 120
management 127.0.0.1 1066
I would appreciate any help you could offer please?
