AWS IPSec VPN <–> EdgeRouter <--> pfsense

  • Hello pfSense fam,

    n00b here and recently started playing with pfSense.

    My core/main network is on Ubiquiti EdgeRouter -
    I installed pfSense on an ESXi server so that I can have a second isolated network -

    I am trying to set up a site-to-site IPSec between AWS and my pfsense. I have applied all the IPSec configurations on pfSense, but where can I find information on the firewall rules and port forwarding I need to set up on EdgeRouter and pfSense for the VPN to work?

    Any help much appreciated.

    IPsec requires forwarding of UDP 500, ESP, and maybe UDP 4500.

    Ubiquiti's forum would be the best place to ask about what to do on the edgerouter.
