EDIT: I HAVE GOT LOGGING WORKING ON OPENVPN PAGE IN ROUTER. STILL CANNOT CONNECT, BUT WILL CONTINUE WORKING ON IT AND POST BACK LATER IF NECESSARY.



EDIT: I FOUND THE RIGHT IP FOR THE VPN IN THE ADVANCED ROUTING TAB SO THAT IS WORKING.

Question: Is there a command I can run on the router to see what is happening when I try to connect?



Netgear R7000
Firmware Version DD-WRT v3.0-r27783 std (09/08/15)
Kernel Version Linux 3.10.87 #4581 SMP Mon Sep 7 07:22:00 CEST 2015 armv7l

I have configured OpenVPN as a server using a tunnel on the router, but cannot connect. I used the OpenVPN web site howto to set up certificates, keys, etc. and the wiki for dd-wrt to set up the router. The client parameters are set correctly and I put the proper information in the configuration of the router including a different ip range for OpenVPN.

I am connecting inside the network for now. I will connect from outside after I have success.

I am getting a connection failed message. I checked ifconfig. Should I not see a tun entry?

It seems as if dd-wrt is not opening a connection for 192.168.z.x range after applying, saving, and rebooting the router.

Trying to connect to an OpenVPN server while inside the very same network is problematic. You're attempting to access a network remotely AND locally at the same time, and that makes routing ambiguous.

For all intents and purposes, the only real way to test OpenVPN server is while actually OUTSIDE the network you're attempting to access. To do otherwise will lead to nothing but problems.

Ok. I will try again from outside. Also, I edited my first post above.
