2 NICs - One with VPN,the other without



  • Hi, in the next days I'll,build up my Pfsense system.But I still got a question: Is it possivle to route a VPN connection over NIC1 and the 'raw' internet over NIC2? The idea behind that is, that I want to connect my XBOXOne to my Pfsense router but I rly don't want to get the traffic over a VPN connection.The VPN connection should be only on my WLANAP on NIC1.

    Network:
    Coax->Modem->Pfsense Router->WANIC,NIC1,NIC2 (so I got 3 Networkcards)
    NIC1->VPN->WLANAP->Laptop,iPad,iPhone,…
    NIC2-> XBOX,maybe PC later with Switch?

    Thanks and regards

    Daniel



  • when you have 2nic cards, tell openvpn via conf the key word 'local' to be the gateway nic



  • I need to say that the pfsense Router acts as a VPN Client
