OpenVPN and Application Proxy that checks for HTTPS
i have another question which i could find no answer on google.
I have to install a openvpn pfsense for a company ("A"), which
has employees in a different customer company ("B"). The problem
is, that customers B network security is very tight, only port 80
and 443 are passed through the application proxy. So my question:
Is there a chance, that the proxy will accept ovpn traffic, if only https
is allowed? Or can i configure ovpn to use SSL in a way that it looks like
https traffic and will not be filtered?
I heard about other (commercial) "SSL-VPN" implementations which can be
used in that way, but i want to use pfsense if possible.
I am sure other ppl had the same problem with restrictive customer
networks too, i hope somebody can tell me from experience what
would be the best solution.
Important: The customer won't accept site2site tunnels or any
configuration change on their firewalls.

Yes you can set the openVPN server to port 443 and setup a Public Key Infrastructure.
The proxy will accept it as normal https traffic.
I'm using this right now to get through our very very restrictive university network.
many thanks :)
