Hello all,

I have a server running CentOS 6.5. When I configure it to connect to VPN as a client, I cannot access the machine remotely via SSH. The machine has two network interfaces, eth0 and tun0. I can still log into the machine from the same local network, but connections from remote networks time out. Stopping openvpn allows incoming connections again. Any suggestions on how to keep new outgoing connections on the server going through tun0, but have it reply to connections received over eth0 via eth0?

Just double checking :

CentOS Server located somewhere, connects via Internet to OpenVPN Server :

[CentOS Server]------VPN------[VPN SERVER]----Client wants SSH to CentOS Server

Is this what you are trying to achive here?

I guess the Problem is... that the Client does not know how to reach the CentOS Server... you Need to route or to nat VPN Network,
