Unable to connect to the internet when PIA Service Running



  • Hello,

    I'm new to VPN Client configuration using PIA VPN service. For the most part I followed the tutorial https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=76015.0 but chose to add my username and password on the Open VPN Client User Authentication Settings and not setting the PIAVPN Gateway as I'm not sure how to create a gateway.

    After the setup was completed the service ran with a Virtual Address, Remote host IP address showing and the log reading Initialization Sequence Completed. The problem I'm having is I'm not able to surf the web. As soon I close the PIAVPN service all is well.

    What am I missing? Any help would be much appreciated.

    Regards,

    Karl

    and not setting the PIAVPN Gateway as I'm not sure how to create a gateway.

    There is no need to create a gateway. You just have to set up the PIAVPN interface and you can use the PIAVPN gateway in firewall rules to route the traffic over VPN. Have you set the rule as suggested?

    Have you configured the outbound NAT accordingly?



  • Hello and thanks for your time,

    You just have to set up the PIAVPN interface

    I created the PIAVPN Interface.

    you can use the PIAVPN gateway in firewall rules to route the traffic over VPN

    At the Gateway advanced Features section of my LAN Rule, for some reason the PIAVPN is not listed in the drop down box.
