Phase 2 question
I have successfully setup a tunnel between two sites, but I am trouble accessing my 2nd device at the end of the tunnel.
Local = 192.168.31.0
Remote = 192.168.44.0
I only have 2 remote devices, and pfsense is 4-port, so I bridged LAN/OPT1 to keep both devices on the same subnet. (I used exactly the same procedure for this as on my local pfsense device which works).
For some reason(?), device 2 never picked up a DHCP lease, so wasn't reachable. For troubleshooting, I removed the bridge and created:
Remote2 = 192.168.43.0 on OPT1
Device 2 now has an IP address in this scope.
To talk to this device locally, do I just need to add another P2 to my existing (and connected) P1 Ipsec tunnel, or is that now how it should work?
P2 = 192.168.31.0 > 192.168.43.0 (and also at the other end?)
I can now add, that I am able to successfully access the device via OpenVPN.
This will do as a temporary solution, but it is much easier to have the device permanently accessible via IPsec on the same subnet.
If I leave OPT1 on an independent DHCP scope, then I have a dozen forwards/redirects to consider (and verify).
The second P2 (may have) needed a reboot to come up.
It is now working successfully on the independent OPT1 subnet via IPsec.
I tried a restart of the IPsec service, at both ends - that didn't help.
A reboot, which presumably shouldn't have been necessary(?), did the trick.
Hope this helps…
