Specific OpenVPN error on Windows 10 "endpoints must exist within the same"

Written by Mirabellette / / no comments

Hello everyone,

  • debian jessie stable 8.7
  • windows 10 creators update
  • openvpn on the server
  • openvpn 2.4.2 on the client

I recently got a new laptop with windows 10. Obviously, I installed OpenVPN with the correct configuration. When I try to connect it i got an error's message.

if The local and remote VPN endpoints must exist within the same

After some hours to find a solution, I finally find it and it is trivial. You just have to

open your open vpn configuration
add "topology subnet"
restart openvpn

vim /etc/openvpn/server.conf
add "topology subnet"
service openvpn restart

* on the client

service openvpn restart

Now, the openvpn client must be able to connect to the server without error.

I hope this article will help you to solve this kind of problem.
