Change default port from 1194



  • Hi, We have got on really well with PFsense and have been using the OpenVPN to remote onto our PCs from home which has been a godsend during lockdown.

    We have 3 networks on the box 3 separate interfaces one of which is for a new tenant using our first floor. Everythnig works great however they now need to forward port 1194 to their server. Since 1194 is on the OpenVPN interface we're unable to forward that port in the way we would forward other ports. We have already changed the OpenVPN port for our remote deskaccess but each time we add the port forward 1194 to the tenants server it always show as OpenVPN and the port is not open.

    How do we change the default so it does not keep associating 1194 with the OpenVPN?

    That's fiddling. pfSense shows "OpenVPN" in the rule when you enter 1194 cause it's the default for OpenVPN, same thing as it shows MySQL after entering 3306, but that has no impact on the forwarding manner of the stated ports.

    There will be another reason for failing of the service.
    You may use Diagnostic > Packet Capture on the outgoing interface to assure that the forwarding is working.



  • @viragomann Thank you. We solved the issue by not using port 1194
