SystemMen - This article will show you how to fix the gateway route OpenVPN error that is not reachable on any active network adapters.

I have the OpenVPN server installed for the clients in the company to use. Everything is fine but there are some Windows computers that fail as follows.
Warning: route gateway is not reachable on any active network adapters
This error will be displayed in the status log on the client, along with the yellow OpenVPN connection icon.
It appears on Windows 10 client, Windows 7 seems to be better.
Fix OpenVPN error route gateway is not reachable
If you encounter an error above, I hope the way below will help you solve the problem.
I have done it and it’s successful with the client machine in my company.
First, below is the content of the configuration file of the client OpenVPN before fixing the error. For example, file name
client remote 192.168.100.10 11194 ca "C:\Program Files\OpenVPN\config\vpnca.crt" tls-auth "C:\Program Files\OpenVPN\config\vpn.tlsauth" 1 auth-user-pass auth-nocache auth SHA256 comp-lzo yes dev tap proto tcp nobind persist-key persist-tun remote-cert-tls server remote-cert-eku "TLS Web Server Authentication" cipher AES-256-CBC script-security 2
And I added the following lines to the bottom of the OpenVPN configuration file on the client.
tap-sleep 3 verb 4 route-delay 1 3 route-method exe ip-win32 netsh
After adding the above lines at the end of the file
client.ovpn, save the file. I restart OpenVPN on the client again and it connects successfully.
Above is the experience of sharing error handling that I have encountered with OpenVPN on the client. I hope it will help you in case you encounter it.If you liked this article, then please subscribe to our YouTube Channel for more video tutorials. You can also find us on Twitter and Facebook.
