    I'm having difficulties with OpenVPN running on WRT54GL Tomato USB Build 54 , K2.4, OpenVPN 3.6 (thanks SgtPepperKSU!)

    I wish to configure a VPN server on the router (IP in UDP/TAP/TLS mode, giving the ability for windows clients to connect and join the same sub net for online gaming.

    Currently the VPN server is configured as follows:

    Interface: TAP
    Protocol: UDP
    Port: 1195
    Firewall: Automatic
    Authorization: TLS
    HMAC: Disabled
    Client address pool: DHCP
    Direct clients to redirect: YES
    Respond to DNS: YES
    Advertise DNS to clients: YES
    Encryption cipher: Default
    Compresson: Adaptive
    TLS Regeneration: -1
    Manage Client-Specific Options: NO
    Custom config: EMPTY
    Sample client configuration:
    dev tap
    proto udp
    dev-node VPNDEV
    remote xxxx.xxxxxx.xx 1195
    keepalive 15 120
    verb 3
    ca xxxx.crt
    cert xxxx.crt
    key xxxx.key
    ns-cert-type server
    explicit-exit-notify 3
    The clients are able to connect, get IP from DHCP pool. Ping is good both ways. Windows 7 SAMBA shares are working as expected both ways.

    When client hosts RB6V2 (Rain Bow Six Vegas Two) server I (connected directly to OpenVPN host router, static IP in DHCP pool range) can see it join and play!
    But the other way around when I host the game server no client (out of 5 clients) can see it (and join), it's like the server isn't advertised properly.

    I'm not a networking guru but willing to learn and understand how things affect each other, I would gladly follow suggested troubleshooting steps - I'm out of ideas on this one.

    Have you tried to get some clients to connect your server in local network? I think you should make sure that your server is running properly at first.

    Of course the server is fully functional from the LAN side.
