  • Answering to my own post

    After 2 days of struggle….  I disabled "Allow communication between clients" and now openvpn client can see internal LAN. and can see internet traffic..

    Before client would connect to openvpn server but would not be able to go anywhere.. not even pinging the openvpn server interface
    prior to pfsense openvpn I used OpenVPN Access Server Virtual Appliance server and did not have these problems (same setup NAT..) and openvpn clients would see each other..

    Luckily.. i do not need the vpn clients to see each other...
