Unable to ping others on OpenVPN

Hi all!

I’ve set up a bridged VPN with OpenVPN. I have a single private network ( where the server is.

The server.conf file is as follows:

port 1194                                      
proto udp           
dev tap                                       
ca /etc/openvpn/easy-rsa/keys/ca.crt                
cert /etc/openvpn/easy-rsa/keys/my_server_certificate.crt
key /etc/openvpn/easy-rsa/keys/my_server_key.key
dh /etc/openvpn/easy-rsa/keys/dh1024.pem   
ifconfig-pool-persist ipp.txt                        
keepalive 10 120                           
user nobody
group nobody
status openvpn-status.log
verb 3

Connecting with the client I manage to get the message

Initialization Sequence Completed

Running ifconfig on the client I can see that the tap interface got the expected IP address ( from the remote private network.

Problem is that I can’t reach anyone.

Ping says Destination Host Unreachable.

On the log I have ( is the server, is the client):

Oct 14 16:46:34 MV-SERVER01 kernel: martian source from, on dev tap0
Oct 14 16:46:34 MV-SERVER01 kernel: ll header: ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:5e:44:da:d6:c8:4f:08:06

I’ve add rules to iptables:

iptables -A INPUT -i tap+ -j ACCEPT
iptables -A FORWARD -i tap+ -j ACCEPT

But didn’t solve the problem.

Any ideas?
