I have an AX88U running Merlin 386.1.

I went to VPN Server tab and set the server to "on".

I left everything default, including "LAN only".

I created a new user and applied all the settings.

I exported the OVPN file and loaded it in my client.

My client connects and status of the tunnel is up but I cannot see anything on my local LAN.

I've looked through dozens of tutorials (most of which are older now and contain dated advice) and I have no idea why it doesn't work.

Nevermind, I restarted the server again and it works now.
