Reserved networks on WAN block OpenVPN and IPSec or not?



  • Hello,

    I want to install pfsense 2.3.2 and wonder if I check these  options  "Block private networks and loopback addresses " and "Block bogon networks" options on WAN network, then I will be able to use these services outside office?
    1. Openvpn
    2. IPSec between our office and branches.
    3. RDP and Web services.

    Would you becoming from a rfc1918 address?  ie private or a bogon??  Then yeah if you put in the correct allow rules those would be opened or forwarded..



  • The situation is like this:
    Head office has pfsense and its public ip is 94.30.20.xx and internal ip range 10.10.0.x
    Branch office public is 78.112.85.xx, internal ip address is 192.168.1.x.
    In this situation, if I check both reserved networks on wan, will I be able to use openvpn or ipsec from branch office?
