How to setup pfsense to allow access to Synology VPN Server



  • Hi to all,

    I have installed VPN Server package onto my Synology server, i setup it with OpenVPN method with port 69633 (UDP).
    I would like to know if i need to create a port forwarding rules to allow acces from WAN to it ? or use rules only ?
    If port forwarding rules is necessary, does i need to create two Port Forward rules in NAT for Outbound and incoming traffic ? or it's only one is enough ?
    (notice : I know that pfSense allow to have OpenVPN itself, but i prefer to dedicate this Synology server on my lan for this job).

    Many thanks for your help.



  • Create a Firewall - NAT - Port Forward for udp69633 and forward it to your Synology.

    Why would you not run the OpenVPN server on pfSense?
