How to make OpenVPN to push for more routes to the client?

Sun May 12, 2013 11:51 pm

I've managed to get an OpenVPN (ovpn) tunnel going between Fedora 17 and ROS v5.24, but the ROS is pushing only one route to the client side. I wonder how someone shall get the whole routing table to propagate over that tunnel? Currently I just add those routes by hand after the tunnel is up and running, but surely there is more elegant ways to accomplish that.

Ideally that route pushing should be routing table based, but I am fine by getting it to push over an arbitrary routes.

Obviously that functionality is not implemented and the ROS OpenVPN support is limited by design. I've yet to read any reason why.
