-Sometimew ​you will find you cannot ping a Windows device or connect to it through the tunnel. If this is the case, please check the Windows firewall. In many cases it is set by default to only allow in traffic from the local subnet and the OpenVPN subnet (default 10.8.0.0/​24) does not count as local. As an example, in the Windows firewall, look at the "File and Printer Sharing (Echo Request - ICMPv4-In)"​ rule and its "​Scope"​ tab. You will see it only allows the "​Remote IP address"​ to be "Local subnet"​ by default. You may need to modify those rules or create a blanket rule to also allow all traffic from the OpenVPN subnet.+Sometimes ​you will find you cannot ping a Windows device or connect to it through the tunnel.
