Using a VPN while browsing the internet is a great way to protect your identity and prevent your ISP from using your personal data and habits for their own benefits. Also, some traffic might not be necessary to route over the VPN gaming and other latency critical programs. Properly configured VLANs will allow for outbound traffic of different segments to be routed to different VPN endpoints while allowing or disallowing normal internal routing between network segments.
Choose a port on the switch to be the trunk. It will connect all of the VLAN traffic back to the router. Select 'Untagged' for each port that will be connected to a device with traffic on the selected VLAN.
Click on the name of the newly create interface or select it from the interface drop down on the top ribbon. If multiple VPN clients have been created, they can be assigned to a gateway group.
By doing this, if one VPN client stops working, traffic assigned to the gateway group will fail over to a different client. For each interface assigned to a VLAN, groups of rules will need to be created to direct the flow of traffic. Using VLANs to segment networks and traffic is a great way to implement different routing rules and traffic needs, especially when using a router that has limited physical ports.
Overview Using a VPN while browsing the internet is a great way to protect your identity and prevent your ISP from using your personal data and habits for their own benefits. VLAN 10 traffic will be able to traverse all other network segments. This network segment will be for general devices and Wifi users. Internet gateway will be a VPN high availability gateway group. Follow the instructions provided by your VPN provider to add a node. Optional Repeat the last step with as many nodes as you like if you plan on using a Gateway group for high availability.
However, there is one running on A; I use it to manage A from remote. However, there once was one set up on B. Any chance there is some residual setting even after disabling it and cleaning up? This is the only thing that would make sense to me as ipsec bypasses the routing table. This is a bit wondersome to me as all interfaces on both machines are configured for v4 only and the openVPN server serves IPv4 only.
I got my issue resolved and feel quite relieved - but also kind of embarassed for taking so long to find the problem. In the hope that it might save someone else from digging around for days, here is what I found. Problem was: private IPs will not be routed. All my Solution was: set an outgoing NAT rule:. Again: router A is the openVPN server, it has subnet The above setting is for router B, which has subnet This permits a host in B's subnet to reach a host in A's subnet.
A corresponding NAT rule will be required on A for the opposite direction. Another thing is, it took me ages to get to the solution but I feel that all the failures I have been through taught me more than I ever wanted to know Keep working on your problems, eventually you will master them!

Ciscoguy May 24, at UTC. When you mean a static Route? If you have 2 different gateways for the 2 lans. IP addresses, subnet masks. LAN1 is Im sorry. I am a bit confused. Please correct me if i am wrong. I managed to fix this without static routes. I had to disable the packet filtering on the NAT. Of course that will working fine. Because you disable all your firewall rules.
Thank you for your answer, I was wrong, after disable this the internet stops working! I just rolled back with 1 WAN and everything is working fine. Edited May 24, at UTC. On lan 2 use gateway 1. Load balancing only works when your primary WAN isn't working or faulty. The gateway for both LANs should be the same.
Ciscoguy May 26, at UTC. I just tried both on the same gateway however accessing the RDP is impossible. Do I need to add access routing? This topic has been locked by an administrator and is no longer open for commenting.
I put X. I also added a firewall rule that allows all traffic from hosts on The last bit of configuration I did is I manually added routing rules on the OpenVPN client, since they are not added successfully by the OpenVPN client likely due to a version mismatch? Following are the current relevant routing rules on the OpenVPN client:. When multiple OpenVPN clients are connected, they can ping each other.
With this configuration, I expect that trying to ping X. Trying traceroute X. I suspect that either I need to tell pfSense how to route traffic between It's possible that there's something obvious I'm missing since I'm not very familiar with networking stuff.
You're going down the correct path, you need a route for your local LAN. But you need a route back from your LAN machine. At the moment it only has a default route of X. Theres 2 options:. Sign up to join this community. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top.

Theres 2 options: Add a route on your gateway router, if its a half decent after-market router you should be able to add a route to So any traffic going there will be directed out the OpenVPN route.
If you cant add the route then for every device you will need to add a static route to the VPN clients so it knows that subnet exists through the pfSense box. For Windows: route add I'm almost certain I don't have to do this sort of thing.
It only takes a minute to sign up. This works fine and a machine on the LAN with pfSense However, a machine on the WAN with pfSense now NAT is your problem. Unless you are using one-to-one NAT, you are going to need to originate traffic from one side only.
Even with one-to-one NAT, you will need to ping from the outside using the translated address. This will prevent NAT from occurring on traffic going from the local network to this specific external network. Sign up to join this community. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top.

The Overflow Blog. The Overflow How many jobs can be done at home? Featured on Meta. Community and Moderator guidelines for escalating issues via new response…. Feedback on Q2 Community Roadmap.In this guide we will see how to limit, and thus make more limited the access of users who connect from the outside in VPN via our pfSense to the LAN.
By means of a time schedule, it will be possible to limit the accesses of the clients that connect with OpenVPN and create restrictions on the accesses of the individual servers and devices. To allow access of our users only in a time interval it is necessary to create a schedule that will be useful to us on several occasions. Access management and restriction for OpenVPN users We can now implement our schedule created previously in the Firewall Rules to regulate user access and limit or allow access to individual servers.
We can repeat the procedure for each user to whom we want to grant access to the server at a certain time range. At this point, to prevent the user from accessing other devices on the network, we create a rule that blocks access to everything.
It will be yellow instead when we are out of the scheduling range and therefore you will not have access. Necessary cookies are absolutely essential for the website to function properly.

Is the pfSense server the default gateway for the LAN machines? Do the LAN machines have a static route for those subnets via another gateway? The pfSense server is the default gateway for the LAN. I tried setting up a static route and and firewall rules in pfSense, but nothing seems to work. Anything else comes down to firewall rules, either on the clients or on the pfSense host. Do the OpenVPN clients have any software firewalls?
Is the unspecified service you're trying to access bound to the OpenVPN interface on the client?
