OpenVPN Client pfsense box originated traffic



  • Hopefully someone can help with this.  I have a pfsense system with a LAN IP address of 192.168.0.1.  I have an openvpn client setup on this box and it's working well. Most traffic I send through my normal gateway (not the VPN) using a rule.  But I have a rule above that for specific IPs to use the openvpn gateway.  So I can have for instance 192.168.0.7 route through the openvpn gateway only.  The issue is, traffic originating on the pfsense box (192.168.0.1) always routes through the VPN even if I define a rule for 192.168.0.1 specifying the openvpn gateway.  I don't want pfsense's email facility routing through openvpn client, but the default gateway instead.  I'm been searching for a while and cannot figure this out.  Any help is appreciated.  Thanks!
