My company requires accessing company resources via VPN. On the same computer:
  • An Asus RT-AC86u router is able to access company resources on Gitlab
  • A GL-iNet MT-1300 Beryl router is not
In both cases:
  • The routers have their own .ovpn files and act as an openvpn client. I can not test connecting to the company resources with this router vpn configuration turned off.
  • The routers are connected by WAN (the ISP router) with an ethernet cable
  • The routers are connected to the test computer by ethernet cable (one at a time during testing)
  • Both routers appear able to connect to the company VPN itself
  • Both routers are able to connect to other, unrestricted resources (internet) just fine.
Anyone have an idea with the Beryl might have trouble? The difference I would guess is the software, Asus-WRT vs OpenWRT. The later has a much simpler admin area but I just don't know the settings to test out to get it to work.

DId you configure the OpenWrt firewall for the VPN? AsusWRT does it automatically, OpenWrt you need to do it as a separate setup.
