openvpn, no errors but no workie...
I deployed openvpn a few years ago on a FreeBSD box and
it has worked flawlessly. But the other day the hardware
failed and I put the config and keys on a netbsd-4
box. The daemon starts up normal, and clients initialize
quickly. It is a tap based vpn, and the route is pushed
by the server, but not the gateway or ns.
Besides all the logs not showing errors, the clients do
get a proper route added for the remote subnet, eg this
IP is on the remote side of the connection:
# route get 192.168.15.1
route to: 192.168.15.1
recvpipe sendpipe ssthresh rtt,msec rttvar hopcount mtu expire
0 0 0 0 0 0 1500 -122
the vpn server lan ip and subnet show in my client
192.168.15 link#7 UC 1 0 tap0
192.168.15.85 link#7 UHLW 0 0 tap0
and you can see my client connection in the status log

but that's it. no workie. I can't ping the client ip
from the cooresponding ipp.txt:
(I'm not sure where else I might find that IP on the
server, it's not in the arp table), nor can I reach any
other ip on the remote subnet, including the server's
I've turned off all firewalling and I can reach the
private subnet from a shell on the vpn server.
What could be the problem here?
