VPN from public to home connected, can't reach anything within home LAN

Hello,

Using LuCI openwrt-18.06 branch (git-19.170.32094-4d6d8bc) / OpenWrt 18.06.4 r7808-ef686b7292 on a WRT3200ACM.

Need a hand with my VPN config. I followed the OpenWRT Basic Config page and all worked. Home network is 10.0.1.0 VPN net tis set to 192.168.8.0.

  1. Disconnected from my home network and attached to another.
  2. Connected to home VPN and logged in successfully. I get a 192.168.8.x address on utun2 interface.
  3. Able to ping my home Router (10.0.1.1)
  4. Can't reach any other device on the 10.0.1.0 network.

Normally I would do an 'ip route add' and I'm sure it's pretty simple, but not sure what the right config is here as I'm new to OpenWRT. Did a search on the community and couldn't find the right config.

Thanks.

The guide assumes you are using option redirect-gateway on the default gateway so you don't need other routes, otherwise utilize option route.
