OpenVPN routing configuration client side
I set up a DO droplet for VPN connection as I will be traveling abroad soon and wish to keep traffic tunneled as to avoid “low-hanging fruit”. I am having an issue getting access to internet once connected to OpenVPN.
I followed the tutorial to the letter in “how to set up OpenVPN Ubuntu 14.04”. However, when I connect via client to the VPN, I can see that my ifconfig shows everything went through, connected, I can ping the DO IP address, but I have no communication out of the droplet (i.e. pinging google fails).
My client is running Linux Mint Mate, I can connect just fine to the VPN and the ufw status on the server comes back ok, I have no errors at face value, and have tried a couple of different solutions floating around in various forums which seemed to be the same issue but to no avail.
Any help is much appreciated.
