Hi,

I want to connect to my ER6120 using VPN, and have DHCP allocate my client an address on my local LAN subnet.

Trying to set this up in ER6120 config seems impossible - the only IP address pools I can create are not allowed to be on my local subnet.

This surely is a very common use-case to allow VPN clients to use local services?

If this isn't possible then how should I allow my VPN clients access to my local LAN?

Thanks,

Neil.

tplink vpn router seems can't let the vpn ip address pools to be the same as local subnet. but still, i can set up the vpn connection up, check the router table, i find a new route to route the ip address from ip address pool to local subnet

I have written an email to the TP-LINK guys, they told me it is designed like this at present, however they have a plan to change this behavior.
