OpenVPN issue

  • Hi guys,

    I have issue - I cannot connect to my vpn.

    Sun Aug 11 10:14:51 2019 UDP link remote: [colored textAF_INET] - this is private ip
    my question is, should i use public ip for me to access it outside?

  • Lots of questions there.. What is your WAN address? If it is not a private address as you listed above in red do not post it here but simply reply that it is different than posted above.

    Is this router behind another?

  • Thanks for the reply.

    WAN address = this is a private network

    router modem connected to pfsense is in dhcp mode. so the wan address of the pfsense is

    if i will bridge mode the modem. will get a public ip instead ( private ip?

  • Anything on the other side of the RouterModem combo then has to be pointed at your pfsense WAN address.

    You are seriously better off putting your modem in bridge mode and letting pfsense do the public IP address.

    If you are dsl with a pppoe connection then you need the user name and password.

    You did not share all those details and our crystal ball seems to be broken. :)

  • If i will bridge mode my modem. Will I be able to connect to my vpn?.
    is it possible to connect vpn with my private ip address as my wan address?

  • What details you need? maybe i can provide it for. please thanks
