RUT241 - Devices cannot connect to internet

Hi,

I am using a RUT241 as an openVPN client to reach devices that are behind it. I was able to successfully set up the VPN, I can communicate between the various devices connected to it but I can’t connect to the internet.

I can correctly ping 8.8.8.8 or google.com from the router’s console, but the devices connected to it can’t whether I have the openVPN client ON or OFF.

I tried the following firewall rules without any success:

I am using firmware version RUT2M_R_00.07.06.3.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Hello,

Have you set up the RUT241 as an OpenVPN client? You mentioned that regardless of whether OpenVPN is on or off, there is no communication available. Did you have internet access before configuring OpenVPN? Can you provide details on how you have set up OpenVPN?

Do you have any additional configurations for LAN or WLAN?

Kind regards,

Hi Marijus,

Thank you for your answer.

Have you set up the RUT241 as an OpenVPN client?
Yes

Did you have internet access before configuring OpenVPN?
Yes, I had it. Furthermore, I can confirm that I do have internet access as I am able to reach a camera sitting behind the RUT241 when using the OpenVPN connection from an external-to-the-router device. It seems like I cannot go outside this OpenVPN connection though, e.g., do a pip install [package]. But connection between devices within the OpenVPN connection are fine.

Can you provide details on how you have set up OpenVPN?
I configured it from an .ovpn file. By the way, I followed the actions recommended for this thread thinking that it would have helped but it did not. The OpenVPN connection still works perfectly after applying the recommended steps. I do have a line with dev tun10 on all my .ovpn files and a network called vpn1 now.

Do you have any additional configurations for LAN or WLAN?
I do have some port forwarding rules allowing me to reach devices behind the RUT241 (ssh and tcp) when accessing them within the OpenVPN connection.

Thank you

Hi,

Do you have any ideas how I can solve my problem? I’m sure I’m close to the solution, but I must be missing one last small configuration.

Thank you for your help
