Route firewall itself to internet when no default GW is selected
I have the problem with OpenVPN clients interface settings: https://forum.netgate.com/topic/146323/multi-hop-openvpn-and-wrong-interface-issue-or-bad-configuration
I didn't get help on that topic so far so I found the solution. I need to set my default gateway to none and my problem is solved, but then FW itself can't reach internet (for updates, NTP). So my question is how to route FW itselt to internet when there is no default gateway selected. I tried static routing, FW rules but no success. Anyone can help?
Google pfSense Killswitch, I think thats what you're really after.
You have to have a default gateway for the firewall to get out. The "solution" in the other thread is incorrect.
no_wan_egressis your Google/pfSense search topic of the moment... or have a look at @Derelict's signature.
