No access behind the firewall

  • Hi guys,

    I'm kind of a newbie but hopefully my problem is not that dumb.
    We have a pair of pfSense that are in a site-to-site VPN (OpenVPN).
    The problem is that the local network cannot access the remote one, only the remote Firewall. It's like the remote Firewall does not allow access behind it.

    Does anyone have any ideas of what could be the cause. It could be something in the settings but I could not find out what.

    Thanks in advance.

  • Hey, I just got done setting mine up so I can hopefully answer your question. If your OpenVPN session is stable, does that mean all your traffic stops at the remote firewall? Can you ping any devices from local side to remote side LAN? If so then it could be just a name resolution issue, a few DNS changes are all that's needed.  Have you had a check to check system and OpenVPN logs to see where the traffic is being blocked from?

  • Do both OpenVPN servers know how to route to the remote network, and are they both configured as the default gateway for their networks?
