pfSense on Hetzner Cloud
Hi, I have an issue while setting up pfSense on Hetzner Cloud.
This is the instruction I follow.
I have no problem up till "On step 4, un-check the option Block bogon networks." After I configure the next steps to "Apply the changes and go back to Interfaces -> LAN and also apply the changes", I will lose connectivity to pfSense via WAN public IP after a few moments. Please advise why this is so.
It's when you enable the LAN interface the default allow rule moves to it as a full firewall and incoming connections on the WAN are blocked unless you have already added a firewall rule to pass them.
You can temporarily disable the firewall at the console in order to add a pass rule to WAN from your IP. Or you should still be able to connect to pfSense from the client via the LAN.
I can see no reason to uncheck 'block bogon networks' on the WAN. Those should be blocked as source IPs.
@stephenw10 Thank you. I configured OpenVPN for access to the router.
Noted on Block bogon networks.
