Unable to connect to OPEN VPN server through WAN2 (multiwan)



  • Hi,

    My network setup is as follows

    MultiWan-Loadbalancing-failover (WAN1 / WAN2)
                                  |
                      PFsense (openvpn)
                      (address pool =192.168.10.0/24)
                                   |
                             LAN Subnet  
                        (192.168.1.0/24)
                                   |
               Another LAN Subnet (192.168.0.0/24)
             (gateway for this subnet is 192.168.1.3.
              this is actually a proxy and mail server
      this subnet is not directly connected to PFSense)

    I have configured OPENVPN and I am able to connect through WAN1 but I am unable to connect to through WAN2. The Static route added to connect another lan is as follows.

    Interface     Network     Gateway     Description

    LAN    192.168.0.0/24    192.168.1.3    route to lan

    Now the problem is I am not able to connect through WAN2

    if anybody have any solution please write to me



  • sounds like OPENVPN may only be running on the first WAN interface.  Maybe anthor Hero member can give you a advise on how to get OPENVPN running on both interfaces.

  • Afaik you need to add a line in the "custom option" field.
    I think it was the "–local host" command.



  • Yeah, you can leave off the "–" part of the command, which is for use when you call it from a command line.

    local 1.2.3.4

    Just putting that in the custom options should do it (remember to use a semicolon to separate multiple options if you have more). After you save it look in System Logs -> OpenVPN to make sure it's binding to the correct IP.
