I have a Firewalla Purple. I would like to use it to setup a VPN server which will allow me to connect remotely to my home network and use a NAS drive (mycloud) as if I am connected to the local network while I am traveling. I have setup the VPN server using WireGuard and have setup the client on my laptop. I am able to connect and surf the web as if I am at my home computer (IP appears as my home IP address no matter where I am) so VPN is working. However, when I open Windows Explorer and click the Network pull-down it does not show any of the devices connected to my home network. I believe this may be that my VPN interface IP address is on a different subnet from the rest of my network (home network is 192.168.1.0, Wireguard automatically setup my interface for 10.200.181.2)
It is possible that this is why Windows is unable to find any other network hardware (no printers, no NAS, no other computers)? If so, how do I make Wireguard assign my interface an IP within the 192.168.1.0 subnet? Even better would be to make Wireguard use DHCP from my home router to dynamically assign an IP.
Don't know if this makes sense but based on my limited knowledge it sounds like it could be the problem and might be a solution.
