PIA VPN changed the default gateway
Not sure if it should be under this category but I decide to put it here first.
I have been on pfSense for a couple years now. The new box is on 2.2.6. The setup is pretty basic
- One WAN with PPPOE
- Two physical separated LANs (on two NICs). LAN1: 192.168.15.0/24 and LAN2: 192.168.16.0/24
Everything works ok before I added the open VPN client of Private Internet Access. The plan was to direct the traffic on some of the hosts on LAN1 to use PIA VPN only. I was planning to use policy filtering, similar to this post:
However, I found a weird issue. After the PIA VPN is up, all of my WAN traffic went directly through PIA VPN, even though the default gateway is still the WAN (PPPOE). I have not created any other rules yet.
There are no other rules under my LAN other than allow pass of everything. I tried automatic outbound NAT, hybrid and manual. None of them seems to have any impact on that.
Any other thoughts why? I assume someone must have done similar configuration before so it is probably not a bug.
Thank you for any comments/thoughts.
PIA forces a new default route through the openvpn.
when you enable Don't pull routes in your openvpn client settings, this will be sorted.
Thank you very much.
That is the option.
