OpenVPN on OPT: works on reboot only when OPT is plugged in

  • Hi,

    I'm trying to setup a failover OpenVPN on WAN2. I followed the instructions

    I setup two different OpenVPN entries, with separate address pools and "Custom Option" settings, as below:

    First VPN:

    Second VPN:

    Firewall Rule

    Client Just Hangs

    When i put the same settings on the WAN interface, everything works fine.
    When I transfer the same settings to OPT, and if WAN is down, this problem occurs.

    Any help you experts can provide is greatly appreciated!

    Thank you.

  • I have an interesting situation. My OpenVPN works now on OPT (WAN2) interface in one scenario:

    If I reboot pfsense with WAN and OPT-WAN2, both pugged in, I cannot VPN through the WAN2.
    If I reboot pfsense with only OPT-WAN2 plugged in, I can connect through VPN fine.
    If I reboot pfsense with only WAN plugged in, and after bootup, then plugin OPT-WAN2, I still cannot VPN thorugh WAN2

    How do i make this work when both my WAN and WAN2 are working, plugged in and then I reboot?

    Any ideas on why this is happening?

    Thank you!

  • Anybody? I'm trying to get my VPN on OPT1 interface to work. Should I setup the VPN servers on different ports? Will that help?
