PfSense OpenVPN Setup and MacBook Pro Setup



  • I have a couple of questions about OpenVPN:

    1. I've never setup OpenVPN before on pfSense.  I've seen a handful of instructional videos on YouTube.  Would anyone have a suggestion on which video is the best/correct to follow and easy to understand?

    2. I already have a dynamic DNS account with pfSense configured to communicate with this account.  When I go to OpenVPN.net, which client do I download and install to my Macbook Pro in order to connect to my pfSense router?  I guess I'm looking for a .dmg file to install.  There is "privatetunnel-mac-2.8.dmg".  Is this what I need?

    I just want to make sure I'm doing this correctly.  Any suggestions would be helpful.  Thank you.

    I would just spring the $9 on Viscosity and call it a day.

    Create the OpenVPN server and use the client export package to generate your configuration.

    Import it into Viscosity and you are done.
