Client to client Connectivity

Post by matty930 » Fri Oct 06, 2023 11:04 am

Hi Guys

I have setup the the VPN server no issues, one thing I could do with is allowing clients to be able to connect to each other, For example;

configured the VPN subnet to 192.168.30.0/24
each client gets an ip of 192.168.30.* no issues there

However I need a device with say 192.168.30.10 to connect and access shares on 192.168.30.11 but I can't seem to figure out how to do it.

Can anyone please shed any light or help with this?

Thanks in advance.

On 192.168.30.10 run: explorer \\192.168.30.11\share-name
If it does not work, set up your OS properly, it has nothing to do with VPN.

I can't ping between them either, and yes ICMP is open on both devices, so presume the SoftEther VPN server isn't routing between them.

Connect VPN and post as code from both clients:

Code: Select all

netstat -r
ipconfig /all
ping 192.168.30.1
netsh advfirewall firewall show rule name="File and Printer Sharing (Echo Request - ICMPv4-In)"

Many thanks this was enough!

I have one of the devices using the SoftEther VPN client and I didn't notice it created the interface using the public profile doh!

Thanks for the help
