I setup a VPN to a DD-WRT router using Viscosity about 1-2 years ago and haven't had to use it for the past 8 months or so. When I last used it there were no problems with connecting or seeing computers (streaming iTunes, etc.) on the VPN's LAN. However, now, I can connect just fine, but can't see or ping any computers on the VPN or browse the internet. Here at my settings, and I have not changed them so I'm trying to figure out what is wrong. I've updated the the latest version of Viscosity.

Server (DD-WRT VPN build router):
Code: Select all
mode server 
push "redirect-gateway def1" 
push "dhcp-option DNS"
dev tap0 
proto udp 
keepalive 10 120 
dh /tmp/openvpn/dh.pem 
ca /tmp/openvpn/ca.crt 
cert /tmp/openvpn/cert.pem 
key /tmp/openvpn/key.pem
Viscosity Client (config.conf file)
Code: Select all
#-- Config Auto Generated By Viscosity --#

#viscosity startonopen false
#viscosity dhcp true
#viscosity dnssupport true
#viscosity name Office
#viscosity ipv6 false
remote ************ 1194 udp
ns-cert-type server
ca ca.crt
redirect-gateway def1
cert cert.crt
comp-lzo adaptive
dev tap
key key.key
resolv-retry infinite
Any ideas?

Hi super_kev,

I'd say the ethernet bridge between tap0 and your networking interface is no longer setup on your DD-WRT router. You'll need to set it up again.

Also, as you are using the "server-bridge" bridge command on the server's end, there is no need to have DHCP enabled on Viscosity's end.
