Bypass OpenVPN Gateway(s) when using pfSense Shell


  • I have OpenVPN gateway / gateway groups set up with (LAN) rules directing most traffic through the VPN(s). I'm attempting to download files via pfSense shell from sites which have whitelisted my real external, static IP. The only way I've been able to get the download site to recognize me from the static IP is to completely disable the VPN(s). I've tried to find a way to get the shell to bypass the VPN, but have not figured it out. (The shell seems to pick it's gateway at will)

    Is there a rule or some other way I can force the shell to bypass the VPN gateways?

    Thanks!
