OpenVPN via PIA doesn't connect to the internet



  • Hey there,

    I definitely need some help now. I am trying to set up a new home network on pfsense. I following nguvu's guide. It's pretty much 1:1 the same, only I changed network addresses and the VPN provider to PIA.

    Anyways, I have a management VLAN, which is 10.100.0.0/24. I connect via a managed switch, get a tag and then based on that get an IP address from pfsense. All works.

    I have a VPN client that connect to OpenVPN, all set up with a gateway. It connects (and then drops the connection sometimes, but I will try to get that fixed secondly).

    Now I want to have all traffic from the Management VLAN to be routed through PIA. And it just doesn't work. I can't ping anything whenever the OpenVPN client is up.

    I have set up NAT:

    I have set up Firewall rules (don't ming the #TEMP rules - that's me pathetically trying to get this working):

    For now, the box is connected to my cheap wifi-router, so it's double-NAT'ed. This is just for setting it up, I will then retire the cheap router, but otherwise there would be no internet for the wife :)
    I tested it on the WAN though, and PIA was still not allowing any pings.

    Who has ANY idea what I'm doing wrong? I'm kinda desperate by now, been toying with this for a 2-3 weeks now...

    Looking forward to hearing from ya!
