Pfsense 2.3.5 not allowing private DNS address on openvpn tunnel
Mr. Waste last edited by Mr. Waste
I am wanting to point my Pfsense Resolver to the OpenVpn Tunnel - (10.2.0.1) but it says I can't. I have no other ways of getting the dns traffic to the other Pfsense Server with the openvpn tunnel because I am not allowing to go on port 53 to the external ip address of the server.
I can only point to the tunnel IP then the Other Pfsense Resolver can pick it up. After that it forwards it to my pi hole server on the same subnet and then out to the internet.
Its a site to site vpn but I don't get access to the remote network part of the subnets, it's just a normal openvpn server.
I need to beable to point my dns traffic to the tunnel then I can grab and tranfer it..
NO dhcp relay or anything like. I am not doing a site to site VPN. Just the tunnel I need to work.
Edit: I mean Pfsense 2.4.5, sorry
If they is no way to add a private dns to a OpenVpn Tunnel I am screwed. Proof:
If your looking at this, any advice?

Go to System: General Setup: DNS Server Settings: DNS Servers:
Try pointing to the ip address of the vpn it doesn't allow it on the gateway because its the tunnel.. It says

What you intend to do, requires that you assign interfaces to the OpenVPN instances on both sites, server and client.
Then you should be able to set a private IP for DNS server and select the VPN gateway to be used for that connection.
On the other site go into the Resolver settings and add the VPN interface to the Network Interfaces, so that the Resolver is listening on it.

@viragomann I have a similar issue, but my site-to-site VPN is IPSec. How do I assign an interface to that type of VPN?
