OpenVPN + MultiWAN = 0?

  • Trying to set up a brand new pfSense box with both load balancing and OpenVPN support.  However, we have had problems, so we tried to start over and see where the problem lies.

    We did a fresh install with WAN and LAN and configured OpenVPN.  Everything worked. Test machine could ping and gain access to a client computer from outside the network.  As soon as the OPT interface is enabled, however, OpenVPN stops working.

    Is this a know issue? Does OpenVPN work or not in a multiple WAN environment?  If so, how does one create rules and configurations to allow this.  We have spent extensive time on the forums but have not, as yet, seen a solution to this particular configuration.

    Details of our system are:

    OPT is a DSL Static IP Address
    LAN is a non routable IP address (i.e. similar to

    pfSense is running on a P3 1GHz machine with 1GB RAM and 3 NIC cards (one for each network– WAN, OPT, and LAN)
    We are currently running pfSense 1.2  (Built Sunday Feb 24, 2008).

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    I think i've read somewhere something about OpenVPN only working with TCP with multiple WAN's.
