OpenVPN and VLAN


I have a nethserver behind my router, and I have forwarded the correct ports and I am able to connect to the VPN server.

But I have a problem connecting to the internet afterwards when I am on the VPN connection.

The network OpenVPN is using is a VLAN.

The port in the swich is tagged to the VLAN and I am able to connect from my laptop when I manually set the ip address and use the right VLAN. So I think that the problem is local at the nethserver which is a virtual machine hosted on proxmox.

I tried to follow the the guide with shore wall in this post but without any luck.

I hope someone can point me in the right direction.



NethServer Version: 7.6.1810
Module: OpenVPN

Hi Jan,

welcome to Nethserver Community!

Sorry for the late answer. Did you create a static route for the VPN network to the Nethserver on your router?
