View Full Version : [ubuntu] Openvpn Access to Router Question

January 16th, 2011, 06:55 PM
After I installed openvpn. I can openvpn and tunnel to my home network and access my router from machine A by going to the browser:

However, I install the same openvpn client on machine B, I can access the local machines on my home network but I can't access my home router Instead, that address direct me to the local network's router, but not my home router. Seems the tunneling doesn't work for the router. What can be the reason?

I have my interfaces file as below:

# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

# The loopback network interface
auto lo br0
iface lo inet loopback

# Bridge for openvpn
iface br0 inet static
bridge_ports eth0

iface eth0 inet manual
up ifconfig $IFACE up
up ip link set $IFACE promisc on
down ip link set $IFACE promisc off
down ifconfig $IFACE down
