Custom Routing Options Conflict - OpenVPN stop run



  • Hello,

    I have 4 tunnels VPN configured :
    10.24.0.0/16
    10.23.1.0/24
    10.25.0.0/16
    10.26.1.0/24

    I added Routing Custom Option for the 10.24.0.0/16 :
    push "route 10.23.1.0 255.255.255.0"
    push "route 10.25.1.0 255.255.255.0"
    push "route 10.26.1.0 255.255.255.0"

    It works well

    When I am adding new line -> push "route 10.25.2.0 255.255.255.0"
    This tunnel stop works like a conflict appears or something is wrong.
    I cannot understand what is the problem ?
    Maye conflict in my OpenVPN Rules between tunnel VPN ?

    Thanks you,

    10.25.2.0 255.255.255.0 (10.25.2.0/24) overlaps 10.25.0.0/16
    You don't need and should not push routes via the custom options in pfSense. Just use the boxes like IPv4 Local network(s).

  • Why this rule work : push "route 10.25.1.0 255.255.255.0" but doesn't work adding 10.25.2.0 ? If it is overlapsing 10.25.0.0/16 ?

    I make this configuration because I want to force my client to use Tunnel VPN in cas of reaching this IP's :
    10.24.0.0/16
    10.23.1.0/24
    10.25.0.0/16
    10.26.1.0/24

    but all others IP connection will be routed by local network (Not passing bby my VPN).

    I don't see how I can configure it in another way.



  • @Rico said in Custom Routing Options Conflict - OpenVPN stop run:

    push routes via the custom options in pfSense

    Do you have an idea ?

    THnaks you,

    Show the exact entries you have in custom options, the errors you receive in the OpenVPN log, and the resulting OpenVPN config file from /var/etc/openvpn. Without knowing the exact input or what OpenVPN is claiming the error is, nobody can say for sure what the problem may be.
