OpenVPN strange issues connecting to WebConfig



  • If I establish an openVPN connection from my laptop inside a network using the same 192.168.1.0/24 address space I can not access my PFSense WebConfig (192.168.1.1). However if I tether my laptop to my phone then establish a VPN connection I can access the WebConfig.

    I'd really like to be able to WebConfig from my laptop no matter what wireless network I'm on.



  • thats why you should always change your subnetting to something different then 192.168.0.1/24 or 192.168..1.1/24

    you could also nat you lan subnet from your vpn connection

    As suggested the use of the 192.168.0 and .1 can be problematic because those are 2 of the most common networks used..  Vs dealing with the special natting - normally easier to just change to something else.  I recently change to 192.168.9/24 which I have never seen anywhere on any wireless network I have been on.



  • Even better, I should get off the 192.168.1.0/24 space and both my issues are gone.
