OpenVPN remote access server - interfaces and firewall rules



  • So I created an OpenVPN remote access server using the Wizard procedure (Tun adapter, tunnel network 10.0.50.0/24, while LAN is 10.0.1.0/24).
    Now my question is this, since I wasn't able to find anything in the documentation or by Googling.

    What exactly is the ovpns1 interface that showed up under available network ports for?

    Right now with the Wizard I have an OpenVPN interface under the firewall, but when I go create rules I can't find it under source interface.
    From trying things out I mostly got it that the OpenVPN interface needs to be able to access the LAN sicne otherwise I won't be able to get anywhere, not even online.
