Can anyone help with a OpenVPN client connection on the Linksys E1700 (running DD-WRT v3.0-r37305)?
I would like to connect to an OpenVPN service (running on a Netgear X6 R8000 Nighthawk router with stock firmware) and retrieve an IP address on the remote subnet mask (e.g. 192.168.0.x), if possible.
When using an OpenVPN client on a Windows PC, I can successfully retrieve an internal IP address (192.168.0.24) and access the local network (pings to R8000 router work on 192.168.0.1).
On the E1700, I currently have a "CONNECTED SUCCESS" status in OpenVPN Status but I can't get the client to provide a useful IP address. The local address and remote address varies but is normally "192.168.254.2" or "192.168.254.3" or "192.168.254.4" (cannot ping R8000 router work on 192.168.0.1).
The OpenVPN Client has the following settings:
Server IP/Name: xxxxx.xxxxxxxxx.com
Tunnel Device: TUN
Tunnel Protocol: UDP
Encryption Cipher: AES-128 CBC
Hash Algorithm: None
User Pass Authentication: Disable
Advanced Options: Enable
LZO Compression: Adaptive
Firewall Protection: Enable
IP Address: "blank"
Subnet Mask: "blank"
Tunnel MTU setting: 1500
Tunnel UDP Fragment: "blank"
Tunnel UDP MSS-Fix: Disable
nsCertType verification: "unchecked"
CA cert: as per file
Public Client Cert: as per file
Private Client Key: as per file
Please can someone review the setting above and advise if I am missing something? I would like to communicate with the remote VPN local network (192.168.0.x)?
