Openvpn client not routing traffic



  • So setup is this (does work with asuswrt as client)

    Remote server which I manage running openvpn 2.4 server
    pfSense 2.4 running openvpn client
    Authentication is via TLS and also SHA1 auth
    private network for vpn is 192.168.0.0/24
    openvpn server ip is 192.168.0.1
    pfsense ip is 192.168.0.2

    authentication is successful in logs and pfsense box can ping 192.168.0.1

    I observed all my clients were not going over the vpn, then I discovered the lan ip's need to be entered into the vpn settings page.

    I entered a ip of one of my servers into the remote ipv4 box. However I just get a timeout trying to connect to it.

    Have I missed something configuration wise?

    Also to add I can ping that ip from the pfsense box and it looks like its going over the vpn based on the latency, but it times out from any lan client.



  • I found the answer on a commercial vpn guide page.

    Basically I had to setup outbound nat rules to route the traffic.
