Openvpn and snort

  • How I should configure openvpn and snort so snort does not block services if I connect over openvpn. Right now snorts block remote desktop and even when I am using openvpn to connect to remote desktop snort blocks the connection.

  • whitelisting your tunnel network is the easiest way. Sounds like you have an overly aggressive ruleset in place if just RDPing into a server trips something, some general Snort tuning is probably in order.
