Armor G1 - OpenVPN Server and client – Connection between network

Hello,

I have 2 ZyXel Armor G1 routers in 2 different locations connected using Open VPN with the following configuration:

  • Router A:
    • OpenVPN Server
    • LAN IP: 10.0.0.1 / 255.255.255.0
    • PC A with IP 10.0.0.111 / 255.255.255.0
  • Router B:
    • Open VPN Client connected to Router A's OpenVPN Server
    • LAN IP: 10.0.1.1 / 255.255.255.0
    • PC B with IP 10.0.1.222 / 255.255.255.0

PC B connected on router B (OpenVPN client) can ping and connect to PC A on Router A using its IP 10.0.0.111. As far as I know, I did nothing special for this to work.

However, PC A connected to router A (OpenVPN Server) cannot ping and connect to PC B on Router B using its IP 10.0.1.222!

How can I make it possible for PCs connected to Router A be able to access PCs connected to Router B?

I don't know a lot about this but it seems I can add static routes. Is it correct?

If yes, it seems Armor G1 does not allow to define static route. Is it correct?

How can I do this?

Thank you for any help

    It's not related to static routes. It's about your VPN type.

    You need devices that supports site to site VPN such as USG.

    But once the tunnel is established, and I think that only the OpenVPN client can start the establishment, then why can traffic not go in both directions?

    I agree that if you want either end to be able to establish the connection and have it stay up between two sites, then you need a site to site VPN.
