OpenVPN - Can't access other computers

  • Hi,

    Using pfSense 2.2.3

    I don't know if it is related to the upgrade from 2.2.2 to 2.2.3 but I can't access other computers on the network anymore.

    Connection to VPN works.
    I can access pfSense at

    I have two servers with web interfaces at

    I didn't use it for a few weeks, and now it doesn't work anymore.

    Only thing that changed during this time is the upgrade to 2.2.3

    Here's relevant config info:

    Any idea what's up with that?

  • Additional note, in my VPN client (Viscosity), when checking out the log, I notice this:

    Jul 12 23:18:57: /sbin/ifconfig tun0 mtu 1500 netmask up
    Jul 12 23:18:57: Initialization Sequence Completed

    I'm wondering if it is normal to have a net mask of

    What could cause this?

    In older versions of pfSense you had a place where you could specify the "Local network" that was accessible.

    You got something wrong - your pic doesn't show the local ipv4 and ipv6 networks.

    I am running 2.2.3 and as you can see that is still there..

    Oh I see why its gone, your routing all traffic through the vpn.. Seed the redirect gateway checkmark you have.  No reason to put in specific routes if your sending all traffic through the tunnel.

    see my edit about your redirect of your gateway.  Attached a picture showing it.

  • Thanks for your help!

    So that somehow works…

    Somehow because if I uncheck the "Force all client generated traffic through the tunnel." option it will show me the "IPv4 Local Network/s" field.

    So if I save it, but leave the "Force all client generated traffic through the tunnel." unchecked, the VPN connection will not work... it will connect but it will be useless.

    So in the end... by unchecking the "Force all client generated traffic through the tunnel.", it gives me access to the hidden "IPv4 Local Network/s" field, which I can modify, save, then check "Force all client generated traffic through the tunnel.", save again, and now all work!

    what are you rules in your openvpn tab?

    What do you want to do?  Do you want to route all traffic through your vpn, or only use the vpn to access the networks behind the vpn?

    Do a route print from your client to see your routes
