Openvpn behind Mikrotik

Tue Feb 02, 2016 8:15 pm


Because I am using the Mikrotik to protect several public ranges I've also got a block everything on the forward chain except from what I list.

I've got that working as it should and it blocks everything i did not list, although I've stumbled into a problem. I've got an Openvpn server behind the Mikrotik which I've opened the openvpn ports to and I can connect to it just fine.

The only problem is that I can't reach any internal ranges behind the openvpn server, until i disable the block all rule in the forwarding chain. I've also put in an address list to allow everything on tcp/udp on the internal ranges but it still doesn't seem to work, only when I disable the blocking rule on the forwarding chain which is not an option as it leaves all the servers unprotected.

Somehow your packets from vpn server are passing to mikrotik who block them... Try allowing that packets source ip to their destination. Without your network topology there is not too much help you can get
