Cannot connect other sites from client

Post by emil34 » Wed Oct 04, 2017 6:21 am

Hello, I need advice with my setup. I have one virtual machine with win2012r2 and one nic. Server has nat ip which connected to public ip address by ISP.
Client connects to server without no problem and they can ping the server. ISP has made vpn-connections to other 3rd part sites and server can reach those networks.
Problem is that from client site cannot reach 3rd part networks. So how to do this? I'm trying with localbridge and dhcp, only can reach the server.

See attached picture

A routing issue. generally, your clients are supposed to get routing instructions from the DHCP so that they-your clients- know that they have to send packets, which destined to your third-party networks, to your SE server or make sure the SE server is their default gateway(there is one more option). Also, the third-party routers or machines are supposed to know how to forward packets in case they are destined to your SE server. Of course, there is an alternative scenario which is much easier but depends on your requirements. Let's know you're going to do.

Good luck.

I doubt the localbridge of the VPN server doesn't work properly.
Can you ping and trace route from the VM and client to the router?
