I have two router with dd-wrt.
First router runs openvpn in tap mode. Now I like to have on my second router openvpn in tun mode.
I can connect to both openvpn server
but I can not surf in tun mode.
Can someone tell which config I need
In firewall that I can surf?
Port forward I have on router two.
Bit of a guess here, but one problem I've seen with OpenVPN in TUN (bridged) mode is if you rely on DHCP-Proxy mode for configuring your clients, they won't be assigned a gateway IP! And with no gateway IP, those clients can't be routed to the internet. OpenVPN strips the gateway IP for some inexplicable reason. So instead, you should disable DHCP-Proxy mode and explicitly configure a range of IPs for the OpenVPN clients, including a gateway IP.
I installed on my first router (r7000 with kong build 37900) a dhcp server.
My second router (tp-link 1043 with 33555) is nothing installed.
My second router wan is disabled.
Static IP, gateway and dns IP from first router.
And DHCP as DHCP Forwarder. And IP from first router.

So it looks like you are setting up an OVPN server on a Wirelss Acces Point.
Unfortunately almost everything you are doing is redundant, because DDWRT is doing that for you, but the one and only firewall rule you really need is missing

I followed your guide and was able to get connected to my openvpn server.But couldn't surf the internet. The browser's message is "server not found".
LZO Compression is disabled and I'm sure that's not the problem.
I'm completely new to vpn. I'm confused as to what the firewall code should be after reading your guide. Maybe you can post it here.
Router Model Netgear WNDR4300
Firmware Version DD-WRT v3.0-r39715 std
This is a second router behind another router which I use to connect to the broadband. I port forwarded 1194 udp from the main router to the dd-wrt router (secondary router), I wonder if that's enough.
Anyway, thank you very much. I think the guide is the best thing on the internet concerning setting up openvpn on dd-wrt routers. I was excited to get connected. Now I want the internet to work. Can you help please?
