PfSense as OpenVPN client but not routing for the OpenVPN network



  • Hi all,

    I have an OpenVZ VPS with a static public IP that also acts as an OpenVPN server. I want to be able to connect to the VPS via the OpenVPN network and, eventually, route connections to a few specific public servers through the VPN.

    My setup is:

    HomeLAN: 192.168.125.0/24
    pfSense router: Default gateway for HomeLAN & OpenVPN client
    OpenVZ VPS: public IP and OpenVPN server (192.168.135.0/24)

    pfSense connects to the VPN happily (see image below) and will ping the IP address of the VPS via the VPN (i.e. 192.168.135.1), also connecting directly to the VPN from a machine inside HomeLAN works as expected, that machine can then ping the VPN server. What I would like is for any request originating from HomeLAN to the 192.168.135.0/24 network be routed through the VPN. The OpenVPN server has the push "route 192.168.135.0 255.255.255" command that should do this.

    Any ideas??
