comment Yet another routing issue in OpenVPN - Cannot access local machines while on VPN
@harrymc Correct, and I agree that these 3 methods will work. Also, putting the VPN server on the router would also solve this. The fact is, I want to solve this specific issue with routing because I want to learn what I have done wrong. I think I have read all online threads from people that had the same issue, tried all fixes but obviously there is still something that is missing and I can't for the life of me figure out what. I think I might just give up, forget about this and look for my next puzzle to solve. Or I could put the bounty to 500, maybe that would help too.

comment Yet another routing issue in OpenVPN - Cannot access local machines while on VPN
@harrymc That is my understanding as well. The workaround for this is to add a static route (either on the router, which I cannot do unfortunately, or on each LAN machine that I want to access when connected to the VPN). This is what route add -net 10.8.0.0/24 gw 192.168.0.140 should do.

comment Yet another routing issue in OpenVPN - Cannot access local machines while on VPN
@harrymc This is my first OpenVPN server config so I must admit I might be mistaken in many things, but I thought that command pushed the route to the local network to the VPN clients.. In any case, even commenting it out I see the same behavior...

comment Yet another routing issue in OpenVPN - Cannot access local machines while on VPN
Please clarify: is "local traffic" that on the 192.168.0.0 network? What's the outgoing link you are referring to? Have a look at this article linked above to understand what I mean: blog.remibergsma.com/2013/01/13/…

"the other end of the tunnel has no idea about you local network", that's right, and that's once again where I need routing to work :)

comment Yet another routing issue in OpenVPN - Cannot access local machines while on VPN
I am sure split tunneling would make me reach my goal, but that is not how I would like to do it. I still want all of my traffic to go through my VPN server, but I also want to access a different network, and here's where routing is involved.

Wouldn't that make some traffic not go through the VPN server though?

@user2313067 I have added the output of route print, and I confirm that I have also run sysctl -p. I have also double checked running cat /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward

@heavyd When I am connected to the VPN, I normally get IP 10.8.0.6. Let me update the question with the full output of ipconfig, it might be useful.

comment How to make OpenVPN client work on UDP only and a non-default port?
@ultrasawblade I thought there could be a way to overwrite the config generated by the server, but apparently the correct way to do this is to redownload the client altogether. Please consider turning your comment into an answer so that I can accept it.

@DanielB I use it because that's the one created by the server. What open source version of the client are you referring to?
