Site2site test setup



  • I have a production pfSense box with openvpn server connecting my internal network to the internet. I want to connect site2site with another pfsense box at a remote location over the internet. My production pfsense lan is 192.168.1.x and wan connected to my isp is 10.0.0.x.

    My soon to be remote pfSense box with openvpn client has a lan address of 192.168.2.x. Is there any way to connect my soon to be remote box WAN connection to my internal LAN (192.168.1.x) to test the openvpn setup and connection etc..?



  • @EdAdders if your wan address on your production pfsense has public routable ip this can act as your openvpn server..



  • Thanks, was able to get the second box online and the isp gave it an ip, but couldn't bring the vpn up. Will try when it goes remote.



  • Hello!

    Here is a link to a good discussion about this topic from not too long ago...

  • Thanks for the link, will be looking to try the phone thing as the remote site is several hundred miles away. I did solve the first issue. Seems the ISP can (and did) turn off bridge mode on my modem, without telling me of course. I have a couple of good vids on the setup and can vpn in with tablet if I need to change things remotely. So I am fairly confident I should be able to set the site2site now that I can actually connect to my box. If cables are not too expensive I might test before my next trip.
