OpenVPN TAP client interferes with Online Gaming

  • Hi all

    I have got a problem that I am unable to solve on my own.

    I have pfSense 2.0.1 configured as a OpenVPN TAP client which is working wonderfully.
    Only certain local IPs are routed through the VPN via Firewall Rules, all other IPs are connecting through the WAN gateway.
    Recently though it has been brought to my attention that it is not possible for IPs that are routed through WAN to connect to Online Gaming servers (Battlefield 3 servers for instance) while VPN is active.
    Disconnecting the VPN client allows the IPs to connect to the gaming servers again.
    Connecting to the gaming servers through the VPN works as well.

    Something seems to be routed wrongly since the connected VPN connection should not affect IPs connecting through WAN at all.

    I hope this is enough information for you to help me out.

    Thanks in advance!
