I have a openvpn server which listens port 443 but it doesn't seem to tunnel my connections.

I run the client in a network that blocks FTP connections, it says it is connected to my server but in fact if i connect to a site via FTP, my connection is still blocked.

Shouldn't a VPN tunnel all my connections and let me access ports that are blocked in the network where i execute the client?

You have to configure the routing.… – pjc50 Apr 16 '13 at 12:56
@pjc50 How can i find my vpn interface address? – Harlandraka Apr 16 '13 at 13:01
@Harlandraka you can find the address by going to network connections and double clicking the tap or tun network adapter. – BigHomie Apr 16 '13 at 14:30
@MDMoore313 and what address do i have to copy? ipv4 address? ipv4 subnet mask? – Harlandraka Apr 16 '13 at 15:01

If you follow the link that was posted in your question's comments it will tell you how to configure your machine for this. The problem with that though, is that once you disconnect from the VPN you will not have internet access. The best way is for it to be implemented in the VPN server config files, as I have outlined here.

server settings are ok, it is working properly, but i'm not able to tunnel connections from client to server, i don't understand what is the address i have to look for in my client network connection properties – Harlandraka Apr 16 '13 at 15:16
@Harlandraka If that's the case then be sure to run OpenVPN in elevated mode so that it can alter your routing table to add the appropriate routes. – BigHomie Apr 16 '13 at 15:18
Can you please tell me which address from connection properties i have to write instead of a.b.c.d? – Harlandraka Apr 16 '13 at 15:20
@Harlandraka you're misunderstanding me. That will not give you a permanent solution. – BigHomie Apr 16 '13 at 15:26
Ok but i want to know what IP should i copy – Harlandraka Apr 16 '13 at 15:26
