Changing VPN provider
I currently use the included VPN from Usenetserver. I have their VPN working with my pfSense router. I'm trying to switch over to their new provider Privado.
I created a new CA and then a new VPN client based on the ovpn files they supplied. When I go to Status/OpenVPN/client instance statistics is says the new VPN is up. Then I changed my VPN_WAN interface assignment network port to ovpnc2 (the new VPN) from the old ovpnc1. When I reboot the firewall I lose internet as I don't have DNS anymore. Any idea what I'm missing?
To get the internet working again I have to reload the prior config and reboot the firewall multiple times.
Found the problem. My new provider uses TCP and the old one used UDP. After changing the VPN_WAN rule to use TCP/UDP it all works.

I'm in the same boat. It's been years since I initially set this up and I'm having trouble getting connected (my old brain can't remember that far back!). I don't suppose I could trouble you for screenshots of your settings?
lol, nm. Double-checked the settings from the ovpn and I'd missed one!

Here are my settings. I'm curious to know if yours differ?

@NasKar Thanks man. All looks pretty similar tbh, although I am using an older version of pfSense so some of my options aren't as detailed (last time I tried updating it totally broke my DDNS, so I just stuck with v2.3.5).
It's all up and running now anyway, I'd initially missed one of the settings. Thanks again.
