VPN not routing to network on Netgear DEVG2020

Hey there -


I'm trying to troubleshoot an issue whereby a DOT Customer has a Netgear DEVG2020 router.

It is setup as per the Telstra Documentation for VPN.

Client software is installed fine, and i can make a connection to the router.


After that however i cannot connect to the internal network or even ping anything other than the Router

FW is off


any help qwould be appreciated.

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

I assume she can connect to the netowrk at the other end of the VPN?


The VPN software on her machine will genertlly prevent her from accessing the local network while the VPN is connected to the remote network.


You would need to set the VPN software to allow local network connection in order to see the network on her side of the router.

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

If you are using express, you will face this issue but not in purevpn. I faced the same issue earlier.
