Basic walk though
« on: March 08, 2018, 07:47:41 pm »
Greetings everyone,

I'm new to pfsense.. but I got my router set up on a quad-core Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU J1900 @ 1.99GHz with 4 ports.  Works just fine.

I'm setting up VPN client for my OpenVPN at CyberGhost.  I got the system to work, and it gives my whole router the VPN IP so far. this I understand.

But, I would like to route this to an open ethernet port on my pfsense box.. or perhaps both un-used ethernet plugs. So here's what I'm thinking.

Scenario number 1 - Route the VPN just to the Eithermet port where that port has the VPN address.


Scenario number 2 - Put in a VLAN address, and create a VLAN VPN, whis way I can route this over to any port in my network I want.

Whats the best proctise here?

Can you walk me though how to set up an interface for routing either idea?

Also.. While the VPN is routed to a spacific address, can you still log into that device locally?

Thanks everyone!

If you want all ethernet ports to have the VPN then it should do that by default.
