Got it working on 2nd firewall


  • hi all,

    my problem was when i set up an openvpn server on my pfsense fw, as the pfsense fw is the 2nd public fw, our main public fw is TMG, our main TMG fw we have set static routes to and from our main VLAN switch, so when our VPN clients connect to pfsense fw they couldnt access any remote networks apart from the LAN that pfsense fw is on, even when i set up the static routes for each VLAN on the pfsense fw and added the other remote subnets on the openvpn server

    the solution was to create a static route on my main VLAN switch for my virtual VPN network and the gateway was set to the openvpn server ie pfsense fw and now my VPN clients can connect to remote networks not just the LAN that the pfsense was on

    so why would you not have put this in the original thread..  And in that thread you were talking about web access and port forwarding not from remove vpn client.. But yes your router to your "source" now removes your asymmetric routing problem.

    This is the original thread you are talking about is it not?
