Question

Can't connect back from network the VPN server is on to VPN connected device

Connected Tutorial
This question is a follow-up to this tutorial:

Hello, I have set it all up following the instructions, my MacBook connects to the OpenVPN server gets an IP etc and I can ping the server that is behind in the network that the OpenVPN server sits on. That is all good.

So the OpenVPN server is 10.0.0.5 and I have a Domain Controller on 10.0.0.4 and it can ping .5 no worries.

Nevermind I answered my own question, but if you’re interested, you need to set the return route. In Azure I had to create a routing table object that sent all traffic destined for 10.8.0.0/8 to go to 10.0.0.5 (The Linux VM hosting the OpenVM server) and this route was the solve. Following your guide allows for clients to connect into the network but nothing in the network can connect out into the clients= connected to the VPN without a return route being created.
