  • Why do you have two different OpenVPN instances? How are you testing, from LAN or from WAN?

  • Hi,

    Second VPN ( was just to see wizard settings and compare. Its not being used (no vpn clients).

    I tested ping from remote VPN client to LAN - and also through pfsense diagnostic ping to VPN client from LAN.

    I use the VPN for remote desktop. I can remote desktop from vpn client to vpn client, but not vpn client to any LAN machines.

    Also tracert from VPN client ( to machine on LAN ( reaches pfsense box ( but no further.

  • IIRC on Windows you had to run the OpenVPN client as Administrator or it wouldn't create the routes propeprly. It would look like it was working but you had no error messages and no access.
