Added new OpenVPN, now pfsense thinks tat is default router
I've added a new OpenVPN VPN (3rd one) which is to route traffic out to internet.
The VPN I've added peers in Johannesburg, South Africa and I can successfully route clients over that and drop them off there. No problem. My laptop I can drop off in another location without issue.
pfSense started behaving oddly with complaining that traffic was slow and the WAN (UK ISP) was down.
When I ssh'd into pfsense and did a curl to ipecho.net it shows me the IP address of the South African endpoint.
Why would pfsense be using this as a default gateway?
My last rule in the FW which pushes traffic over VPN
Presumably the vpn server pushes the default route.
To avoid that enter the vpn client settings and check "Don't pull routes".
Perfect - thank you. As I restarted each client you could see it moving through each one.
Now ticked and it no longer happens.
