Advanced openvpn on pfsense 2.4

As normal, I read a lot of documentation but was still unable to get a working configuration, owing to the fact that I often take a different approach and prefer to achieve a working solution with minimal investment. I use it mostly for my personal needs and research laboratories.

How to setup a peer to peer / site to site vpn using

Today I’m going to write about how to set up OpenVPN in Debian, but instead of talking about easy, single, abstract setups that typically use Remote Access Layer3 setups (tun mode), I’m going to talk about how to do it the other way around… Layer2 tap mode!
As you would expect, this, coupled with virtualization solutions like PROXMOX and technologies like OpenVSwitch, makes it very simple to bridge many Layer2 virtual networks to vRack VLANs, resulting in a very good, high-speed, low-latency cloud infrastructure at unbeatable low costs.
This means that all traffic (layer2 frames) from linked clients will ‘appear’ to be leaving this interface, and that this interface will also be the entry point for any traffic destined for any of the remote peers…
It should not be confused with the server’s actual interface (ens18 in this case). The server will accept tunneled packets from and to clients on the standard, public IP addressed interface (ens18), but once the data (layer 2 frames) is ready to release, it will ‘drop’ them down the tap112 interface.

What exactly is your issue (or, to put it another way, what does “doesn’t work” mean)?

There is no need to configure routing if you built the tunnel in TAP.

To make the tunnel useful, you’ll need to connect it to another interface, as suggested in the linked article.

In a TUN.routing setup, openvpn server can also be configured to allocate an address to a connecting client, which is much better than sending broadcast through tunnels.

TAP is designed to solve very specific problems, and attaching a phone to a VPN isn’t one of them.
FCM’s quote from April 25, 2018, 08:49:13 hi there regarding the need of a tap, Since DHCP relay requests appear to be incompatible with VPN, tap is the only option if you want your DHCP broadcast to move from a remote network to the DHCP server network. Let me know if someone has a tun vpn active with dhcp relay running, and I’ll keep trying to make it work. What form did you use to validate it? You establish a DHCP relay in the remote network with the DHCP IP, which must be tunneled via VPN. What makes you think this won’t work?

Devops & sysadmins: pfsense – openvpn – tap – client

My NordVPN gui has been broken after I upgraded to pfSense 2.5.0. Since pfSense lists the NordVPN gateway as “down” with 100 percent package loss, traffic does not get routed to it. The link is listed as UP in “Status -> OpenVPN,” but the gateway is DOWN. I’m not sure how this is possible, but the log offers some tips, even though I’m not sure what goes wrong while reading the log.

LAN can be found under Firewall -> Rules -> LAN. I changed the “default enable LAN to any rule” to the “NordVPN” gateway. Outbound NAT is set to manual, with the LAN net as the source and the NORDVPN interface as the destination.
