openvpn routed cannot see LAN

I have a routed openvpn tun opensuse 11.0 64 bit. Able to connect to openvpn via external network. able to ping LAN interface via the openvpn yet I cannot ping my (right now only LAN device) The device has access to the internet and (the openvpn machine LAN interface) is it’s default gateway. Do I need to add a route? is there a way to do that via yast?

Let me go ahead and add to this
openvpn client (right now)
LAN terminal pings openvpn client
openvpn client unalble to ping LAN terminal
LAN terminal able to connect to internet
openvpn server also the gateway for LAN terminal
what am I missing?
IP forwarding turned on
