Open VPN issue on WIFI bridge

Postby woody565 » Sun Apr 15, 2018 9:30 am

Hi All,

I have recently flashed a TPLINK WR1043ND with the latest gargoyle and setup as a wireless bridge/repeater.

All computers now connected to this network have connectivity.

I created an OpenVPN server (default settings) and created client (default settings), then added the file to OpenVPN on my iphone. It connects but then leaves me with no connectivity on my phone.

Any Ideas what i should change

Can you create a small network diagram and a screen shot of your routing

I would upgrade to the latest 1.10.X build and use the “client prefers vpn_gateway” mode.
Should fix the issue.

You’ll need to delete/disable all of your openvpn settings to upgrade as I gave that whole module a thorough rewrite to knock out a dozen or so bugs.
WRT32X on 1.11.X
Various ar71xx/mvebu boards in a constant state of flux for custom builds and other projects for the latest releases
