How to send specific traffic to WAN rather than VPN
Hoping someone will be able to help me out.
I have setup an OpenVPN with PIA using the following guide https://blog.networkprofile.org/pia-vpn-on-pfsense-2-4-4/ and adapting it, I have all my devices routing through my PIA VPN.
I now have a need where I have some devices (2 laptops) that need to connect to the internet via the WAN connection and not the VPN connection (these will be connecting to a VPN client that run on the laptops).
Could I follow the last steps in the same guide (Firewall Rule) but change the gateway to be Default or WAN instead of the VPN?
Yes, if you have checked "Don't pull routes" like it is shown in the tutorial, just add a firewall rule for that traffic (source = the two laptops) and leave the gateway setting at its default. Place this rule to the top of the rule set, so that it matches first.
