    I have a problem with my setup consisting of two ASUS routers which are connected via internet.
    The setup is as follows:
    1. Router A: RT-AC87U, which runs an OpenVPN server
    2. Router B: RT-AC68U, which runs a VPN Client
    B connects to the VPN server running on A.

    The ovpn config is as follows:

    remote x.x.x.x 443
    proto udp
    dev tap


    ;dev-node MyTap

    sndbuf 0
    rcvbuf 0
    keepalive 15 60
    comp-lzo adaptive
    auth SHA1
    cipher AES-256-CBC

    For the VPN server:

    Respond to DNS: Yes
    Advertise DNS to clients: Yes

    Allocate from DHCP: yes
    Direct clients to redirect Internet traffic: yes

    A's IP is,

    B's IP is

    Both routers have DHCP servers enabled.

    A's DHCP

    IP Pool Starting Address :
    IP Pool Ending Address:

    Default gateway:

    B's DHCP

    IP Pool Starting Address :
    IP Pool Ending Address:

    Default gateway:

    After activating the VPN client profile on Router B, Windows 7 client connected to B works fine, but Windows 10 doesn't work.

    Android clients work for some time, but then they loose internet connection.

    And after disabling the VPN client profile usually internet disappears from all clients.

    I have tried changing different DNS settings but couldn't make it work reliably.

    What is wrong with my setup?
