Pfsenser 2.0.1 OpenVPN Server and DD-WRT 2.4 sp1 VPN Client site?



  • Has anyone managed to get a DD-WRT 2.4 sp1 router connected into a Pfsense 2.0 OpenVPN router acting as a server?  Am trying to do this with a family member 1,000 miles away.  I already have OpenVPN working on my Pfsense 2.0.1 router and use it actively connect my iPad 2 device while traveling.  Now I just want to hold a constant connection with a family member site running DD-WRT 2.4 sp1 router.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.



  • This question is getting many views, but no input so I wanted to start a petition for anyone else who would benefit from such a guide.  Have searched high and low on both this forum and the dd-wrt forum but, surprisingly, no such how-to guide exists.  If someone here has already managed to accomplish this and would mind taking on the project to create a stick how-to of how to connect a DD-WRT 2.4 VPN (client) to a Pfsense 2.0 OpenVPN (Server), it would be so much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.



  • Where you able to get this to work?

    are you using ddwrt micro or full?



  • No - unfortunately I was not with DD-WRT w/vpn.  However it seems like it may work with OpenWRT.  Others recommend Tomato firmware though it seems like a modified version of Tomato is required with OpenVPN support.  Am surprised no one else has requested this anywhere on the forum.  Have been searching Google and have yet to find a descriptive how-to.
