The only idea I have is that you have different Git URLs specified for
fetching (what `git pull` does) and pushing, which is a perfectly OK
configuration for Git. The URLs might use different protocols, or they
might use different hostnames (so that the one extracted from the fetch
URL resolves OK and the one extracted from the push URL resolves into
If checking this idea reveals nothing of interest, I'd fire up Network
Monitor or Wireshark on your laptop and record the TCP traffic while
attempting the `git push` operation. If you see Git really attempts to
reach for the correct host, the issue might be in the firewall
configuration (you have properly firewalled the access from the
outside, did you?) -- for instance, the firewall accepts all the
traffic from the LAN, but only some of it from the OpenVPN adapter.
