Let a provider connect to my servers.



  • Hi.
    Iam really new with VPN access and I need some advice.
    I need to configure my PFSense to give access to my servers to different solutions providers.

    So first. which one I choose? OpenVPN or IPSec?

    Second. Which is the correct configuration? There is anything like "VPN Best Practices"?

    Third how do I restrict the access?
    I don't want provider A could gain access to provider B servers and viceversa. I guess this will be a firewall rules job. It´s correct?

    OpenVPN

    Run the wizard. It takes care of most things. There are a million tutorials online. Netgate offers their own:

    Youtube Video

    Third how do I restrict the access?

    Firewall rules on the OpenVPN rule tab.



  • Thanks KOM.

    I had seen some of this tutorials. They are Ok. I have follow some of them and get a VPN work. But I couldn't yet understand if this one (the VPN I manage to make work) is my best solution. There are a lot of different options and configs that I need to understand in more deep.

    Firewall Rules. Thanks for that, I was in doubt about tihs.



  • I configure a VPN. Pheraps I'll change some configs in the future cause I don't fully understand how it work.
    Thanks for the videos Iam viewing them right now. I hope I'll understand OpenVPN better after seeing them.
    Firewall rules on OpenVPN tab works like a charm!
