• Hello:

    I'm interested in utilizing PIA VPN for my outgoing web browsing traffic (80/443 ports). More specifically, I'd like to set it up in such a way that my gaming/streaming type services go out normally and protect my other outgoing communications.

    Any pointers or anyone else done this or similar? I'm quite new to pfsense so I apologize if this has already been discussed and/or I'm in the wrong area of the forum.

    Thank you for any help/pointers/assistance anyone may have!


  • firewall - rules - create static address for device - lan tab - gateway dropdown

    that will allow you to customize ALL traffic. doing your customization i am not knowledgeable enough to set that up. good luck


  • @bcruze Appreciate the response. I do not want to set it up by host. I'm really looking to keep my ISP out of my internet traffic. I don't care about the streaming stuff (netflix, gaming, backups, etc).

    If I were to set it up by host, that'd mean that I would have to push all traffic from a device through the VPN. That traffic gets throttled by the VPN service (even if it's unintentional). Meaning, all my outbound traffic from, lets say, my primary computer would be throttled; I don't want to slow outbound to a cloud backup solution, but I do want the ISP out of my browsing.


  • I am going to try this out in the next week... I'll post results if it works. First read-thru passes the sniff test. Fingers crossed
