OpenVPN module - access only to turtle


Recommended Posts

Hi clever people!

I have recently watched Darren's clip on how to configure my turtle with OpenVPN server. I created a VPS in the cloud, installed VPN server and configured users as per tutorial. Both users can now connect to VPN server but I can only ping turtle form my laptop. The network the turtle is on is not accessible. Clearly I am missing something. Any help would be much appreciated.

Best regards

Hi kanalia

It sounds like you're missing some packet forwarding settings. Check out this HAK5 Turtle vid (the stuff you may have missed is at ~22min mark):


It was these settings in /etc/config/network and /etc/config/firewall that eventually got me up and running with the VPN.

Hope this helps

Thanks, I watched the movie and made some changes but did not resolve it. Can you by any chance have a quick peek at my config and maybe you will be able to spot what's wrong. I am losing the plot.

Turtle networks (I bridged both NIC's so both are allocated IP by DHCP):

Turtle's firewall configuration:


Laptop's network (second client connected to VPN server):


OpenVPN server config:


To all clever people (clearly I do not belong to this group :) ), any help would by much appreciated.
