Not able to access servers on the LAN side (OpenVPN in pfsense)

Post by pSilverby » Fri Dec 02, 2022 1:02 pm

Hi!

I have configured OpenVPN in Pfsense using the wizard. The status after that is that I have fully functional VPN connection from client to VPN server. However if I try to go beyond and reach another server on the LAN side it does not work.

My client gets the "tunnel ip" 172.10.20.2. I can ping the Static IP defined on LAN which is 10.0.0.5. For IPv4 Local network(s) I have defined 10.0.0.0/24.

From the OpenVPN diagnostics I can ping the server 10.0.0.10 but through the VPN I get no response. The trace route for 10.0.0.10 from my client shows the first hop to 172.10.20.1 and after that the requests timed out.

The wizard has created firewall rules for LAN and WAN as well as defined a NAT Outbound rule. I have google it for a long time know and do not find anything that resolves the issue. What can be missing from my configuration?

Hi there! This is indeed a firewall/routing issue. You may be better off asking this to the Netgate/pfSense customer support department.

Hi,

Code: Select all

172.10.20.2
...
...
172.10.20.1
That is not RFC1918...

As ordex wrote, you will probably have more luck on https://forum.netgate.com
