Just joined hack the box and am failing at the first hurdle and could use some guidance. I am successfully connected to the VPN and have started a machine and joined the instance. This is the specific gateway we are told to use in Starting Point. I am using the openvpn rather than parrot.
I am then unable to ping or tracert to the host.
Please bare in mind that I am on a MEOW server using the starting point tutorials. I understand there is no ICMP filtering on the box and I should be able to ping and scan the box itself.
What am I connecting on?
I have Kali running in virtual box which has a NAT on my host machine, I have verfied full internet access and can ping my local gateway, 220.127.116.11 and can resolve DNS
What have I tried?
I have tried rebooting several times
Regenerated the VPN pack
Resetting the MEOW server
Stop and starting the MEOW Server
I have tried both UDP and TCP connections several times each both regenerating the key and completely disconnecting and restarting
I have verified that I have not previous sessions open or any other machines running
I have grabbed the various outputs from my troubleshooting
