I'll just get down to the nitty gritty, I have been trying to setup a VPN connection between my laptop at a friend's house and my server on my LAN at home. I used OpenVPN to get this done.
I managed to get a tunnel up and running from my laptop to my server but I am unable to ping the server for some reason. The ports have been opened in the router and firewalls on both laptop and server.
I am a little confused as to why I cannot ping anything once the tunnel is up and running. I noticed that I cannot use the internet once the tunnel is active.
If there is anyone out there that has successfully setup OpenVPN for tunnelling, PLEASE
