External DHCP within SoftEther VPN

Post by thinkp4d » Fri Aug 10, 2018 2:50 pm

Hi there,

I have the following setup:

1 VPN Server, 2 VPN Clients, 1 VM

VPN Server does SecureNAT and DHCP Server

Client 1 has an OpenDHCP Server listening on the WAN Miniport IP (assigned by the VPN Server)
Client 2 has a VM (Ubuntu) linked to it, via LAN. The VM is configured as DHCP Client.

Intention: I want the VM to send out the DHCP Discovery requests via Client 2 via tunnel and the OpenDHCP server on Client 1 to answer them, via tunnel.

What's currently happening: I'm not seeing any DHCP Discovery request from the VM reaching the VPN Server (checking via packet_log). I can see them alright on the LAN between VM and Client 2, but that's it pretty much.

Question regarding my intention : Is this possible? If yes, how can I adjust the server/clients to obtain that?

Thanks a lot!
