Hello,
 
I have been attempting to create a VPN solution between my 2 homes using DDWRT and OpenVPN and I cannot get this to work (I have been working on this for almost 1 year now!).  
 
If you look at the attached diagram, you can see what I'm trying to accomplish along with the network layout.  I am wanting any CPE connected to the 'Vacation Home Router2' to connect back to the 'Primary Home' and pull a DHCP from that location.
 
- on the PrimaryHomeRouter 2, if I go to the DDWRT web GUI 'Status', then OpenVPN, the only info I see under the 'State' section is:
    - Server:
    - TAP Mode: Bridged
    - MAC Address: (empty)
 
- on the VacationHomeRouter2, if I go to the DDWRT web GUI 'Status', then OpenVPN, here is what I see under the 'State' section:
    - Client:
    - TAP mode: Bridged
    - MAC Address: (empty)
    - Local IP: (empty)
    - Firewall Protection: On
 
Can anyone help me troubleshoot this so I can figure out what is wrong?  Any help is 'greatly' appreciated.
 
Thanks in advance!

Are you using a DNS, DDNS or static on home?

Currently I am not using any type of DDNS service, etc.... I am just using that actual IP at this time.  Once I get it working, I will definitely use DDNS, etc.
