  • ZeroTier to route between networks

    Hi, any chance you could be a bit clearer with this? I'm already running zerotier client on the 2nd network router (the 4G router which runs OpenWRT), and I've set it up as per the wiki instructions I linked in my initial post . On which device are you talking about virtual NIC settings?

    Read up on ZeroTier and it sounds like it should do what I need. I've set up instances on the OpenWRT router and the home network device (an RPi), and I can join my ZT network with both. I've followed the instructions here for configuring the OpenWRT ZT client and routing on the 4G router. From the RPi on my home network, I can ping the ZT address for the 4G router, but I can't get to any of the devices on the 4G's network.
