I have set up an OpenVPN server to which I can succesfully connect from Android and iOS devices.
I am having troubling setting up my Ubuntu 18.04 machine as a client. I installed the gnome OpenVPN client so I could connect via the Network Manager. Having done so with the openvpn file and password provided by the server, I get the message that I succesfully connected to the VPN server.
However, I cannot actually reach the VPN network; in fact, I do not even get a response when I ping the VPN server on my client machine.
What could be causing this? There is no firewall enabled on the client side.
Edit: just tried connecting with
sudo openvpn --config [ovpn file name]
instead. Worked flawlessly. So the problem is with the network manager. Does it somehow not import the right settings from the *.ovpn file?
Edit 2 on request: When connected to VPN through CLI command: I can ping 184.108.40.206 and any machine on the local network. When supposedly "connected" to the VPN through network manager GUI I can ping neither 220.127.116.11, nor any machine on the local network, nor the server itself.
