OpenVPN / VPN for multiple sites and subnets
« on: April 08, 2017, 01:07:35 pm »
I am trying to determine if pfSense is a viable firewall solution for the company that I work for.

We have a head office with two branch offices. We have at least two subnets that need to be tunneled from head office to each branch office. The first subnet is dedicated to a POS network, and the second subnet is dedicated to a Windows domain, with the PDC residing at head office.

Supposing that pfsense is installed at each location, how would one implement the site to site VPNs? Would there be any benefits of using OpenVPN over IPSec?

Firewalling / Re: WLAN web management from LAN single host

Thank you for the links. I tried to see if my logs revealed anything and I am not seeing any blocks for that IP.

I'm still not able to access the web management for from

Wouldn't the 'Default allow LAN to any rule' cover this automatically?

Firewalling / WLAN web management from LAN single host
« on: March 31, 2017, 10:59:09 pm »
I have setup both the LAN ( and WLAN ( interfaces on my PCEngines build. I am trying to setup firewall rules so that a single host on my .1 subnet can access the WiFi router web management on my .2 subnet. Specifically, the web management is for my D-Link Wireless AC750 (DIR-816L) WiFi router.

The WiFi Router setup:
- uplinks to the .WLAN interface via a LAN port on the router (not the WAN port)
- only has the ability to define a gateway on the WAN port (unused)
- has a LAN IP of (to access web management)
- has DHCP disabled.

I have set the WLAN interface rules to pass DNS. From the WLAN, I can browse Internet and access the WiFi router web management.

I have tried various rules that don't seem to have any affect. For instance:
pass on the LAN interface TCP from source to destination
pass on the WLAN interface TCP from source to destination

Any thoughts?
