DHCP Confusing / Problematic on OpenVPN Interface
tristano last edited by
I have pfSense RC2 configured with LAN and OpenVPN interfaces on individual subnets. Here are some relevant settings:
VPN >> OpenVPN
Dynamic IP: yes
Local port: 1194
Address pool: 192.168.24.0/23
Services >> DHCP Server
Enable DHCP: yes
Subnet mask: 255.255.248.0
Range: 192.168.22.100 to 192.168.23.199
Enable DHCP: ?
Subnet mask: 255.255.254.0
Range: 192.168.24.100 to 192.168.25.199
If the DHCP Server is not enabled on the VPN interface, connecting clients still seem to get DHCP service and are assigned an address on the 192.168.24.0/23 subnet. If the DHCP Server is enabled on the VPN interface, however, DHCP service on the LAN subnet is interrupted and only static clients and fixed leases seem to get onto the network. The obvious solution is to disable the DHCP Server on the VPN interface, but this seems counterintuitive. Any thoughts?
