OK – I’m progressing.
I got home and did the same to Box2:
1) took out the parameter except for –verb 5 –tls-auth /root/static.key
2) set the VPN00 IP to 188.8.131.52
Vola! I can ping 184.108.40.206 from the Box2 at home.
Now how do I access the other network attached to either boxes? The plan is to be able to ping from home the 10.0.0.x network at the office (Box1).
