Note: By the time of editing, in 2.2.4-RELEASE version of pfSense the only way to route traffic through OpenVPN client seems to be "redirect-gateway def1" advanced option, which redirects absolutely all traffic and pfSense default gateway becomes the same thing with OpenVPN client's gateway and not the ISP's one. There is a way to still route
if 'redirect-gateway' is required for some but not all clients then add a 'client-config-dir' option e.g. client-config-dir /etc/openvpn/clients and inside that directory put files for each client CN, e.g. file Client1 would contain. push-reset that way the servers don't get the 'redirect-gateway' pushed by default. HTH Remove redirect-gateway def1 in your OpenVPN server config file (server.conf). In the client config (client.ovpn or client.conf), add a line similar to: route 188.8.131.52 255.255.255.0 vpn_gateway This routes the 184.108.40.206 subnet through the VPN connection and everything else out of the non-VPN connection. client remote ***** 1194 dev tun comp-lzo ca ca.crt cert client1.crt key client1.key route-delay 2 route-method exe redirect-gateway def1 verb 3 However, upon connection, I can ping 10.8.0.1 with no problem, but I can not even visit Google. I am running Open VPN 2.1.4, in Windows 7 Ultimate with admin rights. To send all traffic through the VPN connection, append the er.ovpn configuration file with the following line. redirect-gateway def1. 5. Connect to the server. macOS Client. In this section, we are using an Apple macOS computer as the OpenVPN client. 1. Open the macOS Terminal and create an OpenVPN directory and configuration file. mkdir In OpenVPN, there is the --redirect-gateway option that does this for a client. With tinc, there is no such option, but the behaviour can be replicated with a host-up and host-down script. First there is an explaination of the theory behind redirecting the default gateway, then example scripts will follow. OpenVPN issue with Redirect Gateway I'm very new to pfSense (less then a week) so I probably screwed something up here. I'm running the latest pfSense version 2.3 and my LAN is 10.1.0.0/16 and I have OpenVPN running on IPv4 Tunnel Network 192.168.1.0/24. I have an openvpn server residing in amazon cloud on subnet 220.127.116.11/24. I have another X-ec2 instance on another subnet 18.104.22.168/24. I am able to not route internet traffic through the VPN by removing . push "redirect-gateway def1" on the server configuration file.
From the OpenVPN man page:--route network/IP [netmask] [gateway] [metric] This tells the server config to "push" to the client, the route command which sets a networking route of the 10.10.10.0/24 subnet via the gateway 10.0.0.2 with a metric of 1. Metrics are used to give "preference" if multiple routes exist (such that the lowest cost wins).
Get Started with OpenVPN Connect. OpenVPN Connect is the free and full-featured VPN Client that is developed in-house. It is the official Client for all our VPN solutions. Any other OpenVPN protocol compatible Server will work with it too. Our desktop client software is directly distributed from our Access Server User portal. The 3rd redirects the real VPN endpoint IP address to use the original gateway, and will be used for the encrypted VPN packets: dest 22.214.171.124 mask 255.255.255.255 gw 192.168.20.254 This neat trick allows setting up the VPN without touching the default gateway route.

Jun 22, 2019 · “redirect-gateway def1” changes client routing table so that all traffic is directed via server. Without it only traffic sent to servers ip 10.66.77.1 will be sent there. Most materials in web recommend to add to server config push “redirect-gateway def1” but this is not working in some cases so better add this config directly to client. Aug 06, 2019 · When the Redirect Gateway option is selected the server will push a message to clients instructing them to forward all traffic, including Internet traffic, over the VPN tunnel. This only works in SSL/TLS modes with a tunnel network larger than a /30 subnet.
