All traffic from LAN to OpenVPN client



  • Hi!

    I'm trying to figure out how to force all traffic on the LAN interface through an OpenVPN client to the internet.

    Computer 1, Computer 2, Computer 3 -> LAN -> OpenVPN -> Internet

    How do I configure such a setup? The pfSense machine has two network interfaces, LAN and WAN.

    Thanks so much in advance!



  • assign an interface to the openvpn instance.

    it should then automagically create a gateway for it. (if not, create a gw yourself)

    use policy routing to force lan through the new gateway

    I have tried this, but it doesn't seem to work. I can route all traffic from LAN -> WAN by changing a LAN firewall rule to use the WANGW gateway, but when I change it to use the OpenVPN gateway it doesn't work.

    Any idea how come? Also, what settings should I use on the client computers? Assign them an IP on the same subnet and use the LAN interface IP as gateway?

    Are you sure the tunnel is working?
