Port forward from OpenVPN Interface
I'm embarrassed to ask for help but as a casual user, I cant seem to access my Opt1 network from my OpenVPN connection. I've enabled NAT reflection and have created the following NAT rule.
Interface Protocol Source Address Source Ports Dest. Address Dest. Ports NAT IP NAT Ports Description Actions
OpenVPN TCP/UDP * * OPT1 net 8150 192.168.10.11 8150
PFSense also added to this rule to my OpenVPN interface.
I have added a rule on the Opt1 and LAN network (as a troubleshooting measure) but with no success.
States Protocol Source Port Destination Port Gateway Queue Schedule Description Actions
IPv4 TCP/UDP * * OPT1 net 8150 * none
Any suggestion or even reading would be much appreciated. I've been doing a bit of leg work myself understanding the technologies but I am an electrician and not an I.T. pro! Thank you so much!
FYI, I've allowed private interfaces to pass through (since this default rule was set to block private networks) but that didn't seem to help.
Cannot see what's the place for NAT, let alone the reflection nonsense here? Just add the network to IPv4 Local network(s) in the OpenVPN server config and use the proper IP directly when connected via OpenVPN.
:P Both my LAN and my Opt1 networks are added to the VPN server config…I didn't mention that in my first comment. One of the posts somewhere in this forum suggested to use NAT which didn't make much sense but I thought I might try anyway. I'm assuming PFSense has a routing table like most routers so my initial thought was that it had to do with the rules. Thank you for the help anyway.
FYI, I was able to find the problem but it was a hardware related error. Thanks again!
