OpenVPN - Clients unable to see network devices

Wed Aug 08, 2018 11:31 am

I have completed the setup of OpenVpn on my raspberry pi. I am able to connect successfully and access the internet as if I'm browsing from home.

My problem is that I have a network share that I want to be able to access while connected to the VPN, but the clients are unable to see this network share or any other devices on the network except for the device itself.

I have noticed that when my laptop is connected to my home network, these are it's connection settings:

Code: Select all

IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.12.19
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.12.254
While connected through the VPN my laptop has:

Code: Select all

IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.43.11
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.43.1
The raspberry pi has a static ip address of 192.168.12.18

I would really appreciate any help as I'm really stuck.

http://www.pivpn.io/ <- If you just want to get something that works, this is fantastic, the only downside is that because of the automation it does not teach you much. Advanced users may find it a bit restrictive but to the average Joe its ideal.

What are you trying to view the shares on ? How are you trying to access them, Windows has made a lot of changes to network browsing you may be suffering from this rather than an issue with the VPN...
