OpenVPN - connecting on the road, both networks have same network address



  • So I've been able to use my openvpn server for some time, but never really ran into an issue since I was always doing it from my mobile phone.  Now using Internet at a few Airbnb's while traveling, I cannot access my local servers when connected.

    I'm speculating that this is because my home network is 192.168.1.1 and the networks where I'm connecting from are the same… is there a setting I can enable within Pfsense to get around this?  or do I need to change my home network to something completely random to limit this from happening in the future.

    Cheers,

    M.



  • Change your home network to 172.16.50.xxx or something else in private address range.
