Cannot communicate with vpn client from LAN

  • Just installed pfsense with openvpn on a vm. I am able to connect through the tunnel to the lan network, but the lan network cannot see the vpn client side. I can ping the lan computer from vpn client, but lan computer cannot ping vpn client.

    PFsense vm: internal Private IP External IP (Floating IP (WAN))
    PFsense vm: can access web configurator at (from lan)

    em0 = WAN
    em1 = LAN

    Tunnel Network
    Local LAN

  • Possibly the access is blocked by the clients firewall. It's the default behavior of desktop firewalls to block access from outside their network segment.

  • @viragomann I had disabled the firewalls
