Selective VPN advice
« on: September 15, 2010, 04:36:47 pm »
Need some advice on the following:

I'm currently outside the USA, and I created a VPN server (PPTP) on my father's (in the USA) Windows XP box so I could tunnel in and access USA only sites like Hulu, Pandora, Netflix, etc, etc. through his AT&T U-Verse connection.  Currently, I just use the VPN client on Windows 7---and I have multiple machines on my LAN that access...but it is basically one at a time.

Does anyone have any advice on a recommended way to use the VPN client on PfSense to access the PPTP server for all the hosts on my LAN.  The main catch is, I only want to use this tunnel for traffic to specific services (Boxee, Netflix, Pandora, Hulu, etc).   This seems kind of difficult at the layer 3 level, since I don't have a list of all the IPs for those specific services.  Any ideas for a workaround?

You can't do that with PPTP.

Use a better VPN option like OpenVPN and you can route the traffic out however you like.
