comment Yet another routing issue in OpenVPN - Cannot access local machines while on VPN
@heavyd sorry, I thought I would get a notification when a message was added to the chat, but apparently this is not the case. Just so you know, I have resolved the issue; thank you very much for your help ;)

comment Yet another routing issue in OpenVPN - Cannot access local machines while on VPN
@heavyd nope. I should try using the same machine but on a different network. My gut is telling me that this might be an issue with the 3G connection. Sometimes (and only when I am on 3G), I successfully connect to the VPN but cannot even get the correct IP.

comment Yet another routing issue in OpenVPN - Cannot access local machines while on VPN
@heavyd another interesting discovery: I am able to access all of the devices on the LAN (from the other machine, that is), even those on which I haven't manually added a static route. It was my understanding that this was necessary if OpenVPN wasn't running on the network gateway. Wizardry.

@heavyd what are the permissions on your OpenVPN folder? I just realized that my client is not writing any logs, and in the connection phase I see a warning saying that it is not able to open my user.log file.

@heavyd no, I am on another machine at the moment. Do you think it could be a problem with the machine?

comment Yet another routing issue in OpenVPN - Cannot access local machines while on VPN
@heavyd this is interesting: I am currently on another network and I can access my local machines. The routing table is indeed correct now (the routes are all being pushed - with the exception of the 192.168.0.0 route which is not there for some reason, but I do have both the 10.8.0.0 routes). At this point I am wondering whether my mobile operator does not allow using non-default routes?
