Need ASAP help with routing and OpenVPN tunnels
« on: August 26, 2010, 08:16:41 pm »
Hi, at wits end with vpns. I can get the new tunnels up, but they dont pass any traffic. Nothing shows in the logs. I have moderate knowledge of pfsense and cant make it go. As an consultant I need to find someone that I can trust to help me whenever I get stuck like this. I will pay an reasonable hourly rate, fix it in 5 minutes and get an hour :) Please email me ASAP at chats6@hotmail.com (a temporary address) with your phone number and I will call. Also post here after you email me so I will check it.

Thanks

This is exactly what the pfSense Commercial Support offering is for.  Consider signing up for a support contract. 
I do not respond to PMs demanding help.

I would prefer the commercial support, but the 600.00 entry is simply too much as a small shop. I might not need any more help for 6 months or I might need many hours next week you never know. I prefer to pay as I go type of thing.

I found this particular problem and fixeed. Ipsec was on, but not enabled. Basically I read that with freebsd if you have an ipsec tunnel to a remote network even if its disabled in my case that it cannot pass traffic to that network through openvpn. Very obscure, but a simple chceck box fixed it. Too bad it took several days of unbillable work to find that box!

If the bar to entry is too high for you, at least consider buying the book.  I suspect the $30USD outlay would have saved you several days' effort.
