  • Hi,

    Your question - is it a question ? isn't very clear.

    I tend to say : yes, you can create a VPN server (on pfSEnse) so a off-site client can connect to it,
    and yes, you can create a also VPN client (on pfSense) so it connects to another off-site VPN server.



  • Of course my doubt is because if I create an openvpn instance it uses UDP 1194 for my users, and now I want to use the same port or different ports for my other office?



  • Perhaps you'd better describe what you're trying to do. If you're connecting to another site, then you also have a different address, so that you don't need to use different ports.

    When you setup an OpenVPN Server (on pfSense) the default port is "1194", as is UDP for the protocol. But you are free to change any of those two.
    You could even keep this "1194/UDP" for your OpenVPN server (on pfSense), it will not conflict with another VPN Server using the same protocol/port, available somewhere on the Internet, to which the client VPN running on your pfSense connects to.



  • I usually use port 1194/UDP for client VPN and port 1195/UDP for site to site.



  • You can put it on any unused port you want. Just choose Other and specify the port number.
