I’m happy that my Flints have finally arrived. Setup was easy and straightforward, but I have an issue I can’t figure out how to fix.
As of now, my Flint gets internet from WAN port connected to my router provided by ISP (Flint WAN IP 192.168.0.11). Flint’s subnet is default 192.168.8.0/24. I’m using Mullvad VPN, it works well, but when Flint is connected to VPN my devices, e.g. laptop (192.168.8.100) can’t access resources on the main router’s subnet (e.g. RDP on 192.168.0.2, or file sharing on 192.168.0.3 etc.).
I tried using VPN Policy, set 192.168.0.2 to be accessed without using VPN and it seems to work, my devices connected to Flint can access 192.168.0.2, but enabling VPN policies completely kill internet connection when connected to Mullvad VPN.
As a temporary fix, I changed firewall settings through LuCI (I think I added an entry so that when device in Flint’s LAN tries to access 192.168.0.2 request to be handled through gateway 192.168.0.1) and it seems to work, I’m connected to Mullvad and still can access local resources in 192.168.0.0/24 subnet, but the problem is that I have connection drops when accessing above mentioned resources.
So, to summarize, I need help to stay connected to Mullvad VPN with Flint and still be able to access devices in the Flint’s WAN subnet from Flint’s LAN devices. I hope I made it clear. Thank you in advance and feel free to ask if you have any questions, I am by no means tech guy, so I might have done something wrong.
P.S. My flint is running latest accessible firmware with integrated update system.
