Trying to connect Pfsense to AWS VPNGateway via OpenBGPD and OpenBGPD seems to be inactive.



  • Hello everyone,

    So I was trying to follow this guide: https://www.1strategy.com/blog/2017/08/29/tutorial-using-pfsense-as-a-vpn-to-your-vpc/ on connecting Pfsense and came onto an issue. We got iPsec to work fine (We contacted AWS Support to double-check,) but OpenBGPD is not sending or receiving any data from any neighbors.

    allow from *NEIGHBOR1*
    allow to *NEIGHBOR1*
    allow from *NEIGHBOR2*

    Thanks in advance for anyone's help!
