WAN / LAN/ Open VPN Client / webserver
this is my first post here and I have been grinding through every post I could find but I could not find a solution to my problem.
Lan is 172.16.0.12 / 16
Wan is PPPoE (Fixed IP)
Strong_vpn client connection
Internet access from inside worked like a charm, I am using the VPN connection as the gateway in order to have unrestricted internet.
The next part is where the problems start.
I need to allow access to a web server that is behind the pfsense firewall.
I have done the following:
My vpn connection does not have a static IP address, so i am using NO-IP for dynamic dns.
I have checked and the IP addresses update well.
My port forwarding requirements are as follows:
Port 80 from ANY interface to 172.16.0.11(Web)
1. Created a new NAT rule to forward the port to the server, It created a new association rule for the VPN connection.
From Firewall –> Nat--> Port Forwarding:
| If | Proto | Src. addr | Src. ports | Dest. addr | Dest. ports | NAT IP | NAT Ports | Description |
| STRONG_VPN | TCP/UDP | * | * | STRONG_VPN address | 80 (HTTP) | 172.16.0.11 | 80 (HTTP) | LIB Server |
2. In Advanced settings I unchecked "Disable NAT Reflection for port forwards"
3. Rebooted the firewall.
Now when I go to the domain name that NO-IP gave me the website does not open. I have been through this setup and everything that I have done seems correct (according to other posts on the forum)
Any help with this will be much appreciated.
i turned off the vpn and set up the forwarding won the wan connection and it seems to be working.
but i need it to work through the vpn connection :(
You shouldn't need any NAT between VPN<>LAN, just some allow rules (everything is blocked by default on the VPN interface).
