Changed IP subnet, now VPN client can't talk to anything

Postby cybercowboy » Thu Oct 01, 2020 10:45 am

So, due to reasons unrelated, I had to change my setup from 192,168.1.X to 192.168.86.X (Here's a forum post talking about doing that and the steps I took: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=7452 )

However, I went to connect to the VPN for the first time since then, and I can't ping anything. I suspect there's something missing in a routing table to go from the VPN's subnet to the new subnet 192.168.86.X but have no way to verify that. Any help with where to look would be appreciated.

(also looking at the forum above I realize I forgot to update the WIKI going to do it now.

OpenVPN App is tied to the IP subnet.

Uninstall the app, reboot (to be safe), then reinstall.

Should work correctly then.

Can’t change the IP subnet without uninstalling and reinstalling apps that are IP subnet dependent. There is no automated way to change them all at the same time.
