    My clients are not able to connect to the internet, nor able to RDP to pc's after getting connected to my openvpn server on rt-ac3100 running 384.13. They can, however, ping the pc's within the LAN without error.

    They're using the latest OpenVPN client from google play..they're also using the Microsoft RDP application from google play. These are my client settings..

    client
    dev tun
    proto udp
    remote (address) (port#)
    float
    ncp-ciphers AES-128-GCM:AES-256-GCM
    auth SHA256
    compress lz4
    keepalive 15 60
    auth-user-pass
    remote-cert-tls server


    I also have the "Client will use VPN to access" radio button set to "Both".

    The IP range giving out by the vpn server is 10.8.0.* and the local lan is 192.168.2.*...

    Any ideas?

    I recommend the OpenVPN client by Arne Schwabe. Use something other than the default port. Login recommended. The IP settings should work. Be careful modifying the exported config file. I use pretty much the same settings with no issues.
