OpenVPN-Client as a Gateway



  • Hello Friends,

    Apology if this is a repeated question. it took me a while to look up a similar approach and i got lost.

    So to make it simple I'm running on pfsense-2.3.2 and as you see below ..
    I'm trying to route traffic between my Local VLAN(s) "10.0.1.0/24 10.0.4.0/24" to/fro a remote OpenVPN-Client's LAN "192.168.1.0/24"

    OPVN Client's LAN        OVPN-Client              ||              OVPN-Server                  ||      LANs            ||

    [Client's LAN]–---------------[Rpi]–------------------|--------------[Pfsense]–----------------|----[VLANs]–-----

    192.168.1.0/24      192.168.1.2 (lan ip)            |          10.0.1.1 (gw for vlan1)        |  10.0.1.0/24
                                      10.10.10.2 (ovpn ip)            |          10.0.4.1 (gw for vlan4)        |  10.0.4.0/24
                                                                                      |          10.10.10.1 (gw for ovpn)    |

    I would appreciate any guidance here.

    Thank you for sharing the knowledge.



  • I would guess it would work if you create firewall rules in each vlan, source your network; destination theirs, and select advanced options in the rule and manually select the gateway interface. So long as you have it assigned to an interface.

    Though, admittedly, I am new to OpenVPN.
