Strange VPN problem

Hi

For my homelab I have a View 4.5 environment running for some while now without problems. Since my ADSL router can only open some ports, PCoIP was not an option, so I connected to my View Connection server over the internet over https, made a View RDP connection and all was fine.

Last week someone pointed me to OpenVPN SSL appliance and I decided to give it a try. Very easy to setup and was running very quick. On my router I opened: tcp 443 / udp 1194 and redirected them to the View Connection server.

What works:

- I can setup a VPN connection

- in the

- once the VPN is setup I can ping internal addresses using internal FQDN, shortnames and IP address

- Using mstsc I can setup an RDP session to my domain controller and all other servers including the view connection server.

What doesn't work is making a View connection:

- I start the View Client

- I enter the internal IP of the View Connection server in the connection settings box

- Then I see it making a connection and quickly prompt me for userid / password

- after entering the credentials, I briefly see the status changing to "authenticating" and then it dies

- I never get the box that shows the available desktop pools and it just hangs forever.

I have no VLANs, all is one flat network. Only the VPN network, created by the OpenVPN appliance is in the 5.5.x.x range.

Any tips?
