Network Lock blocking local LAN even though option to allow is on.

Recommended Posts

I am using Eddie 2.16.3 on Ubuntu 18.04.  I use a DLNA/Upnp media server to stream to other devices on the network.  When I have network lock enabled I cannot see my DLNA server on other devices.  Also cannot use samba or anything like that.  The local network is being blocked even though allow lan/private is ticked.


I see from the faq https://airvpn.org/faq/software_lock/


that these are the allowed address

# Make sure that you can communicate within your own network if Private Network option is enablediptables -A INPUT -s -d -j ACCEPTiptables -A OUTPUT -s -d -j ACCEPTiptables -A INPUT -s -d -j ACCEPTiptables -A OUTPUT -s -d -j ACCEPTiptables -A INPUT -s -d -j ACCEPTiptables -A OUTPUT -s -d -j ACCEPT


however my local network is 192.168.1.* Is this the reason for my problems?  How do I change eddies iptables rules to also include 192.168.1.* ?

For information : I reconfigure my network with 192.168.0.* address IP but it doesn't work.
In the settings / routes, i place the IP address i want to access outside the VPN tunnel
In the settings / Network lock, i place the IP address of the devices witch are allowed to access minidlna in "allowed for incoming" and "allowed for outgoing"
I try to add some rules to iptables to be more permissive (but i'm not an expert) ...
... always with the same result 😞

I read a lot of thread about how sharing or activate local network but it's often for windows otherwise it look very complicated for a non specialist.
some help would be greatly appreciated.
