I would like to review your configuration.

Please attach a troubleshoot file to your question or send it in a private message. Make sure to replicate the issue, then access router's WebUI, go to System -> Administration -> Troubleshoot section and download troubleshoot file from there. The logs in the file might provide more insight into the issue.

Having logs from the server side with corresponding timestamps would be helpful as well.

Best regards,

Thank you for quick reply. I attacched the Troubleshoot file in the original post.

please use the troubleshoot-RUT241-2023-05-30(1).tar.gz file (i reactivated the vpn config)

Your client configuration is of TAP type, but from your query description your server is in a different LAN subnet than the RUT241.

You either need to change configuration to TAP mode, or make sure that client and server devices are in the same subnet, while making sure that the no devices have the same IP address, just the same subnet.

Best regards,
