FreePBX > System Admin > VPN Server connect to pfSense OpenVPN
I am just starting with this project and I am literally finding nothing. I was hoping to find a “how to” that would help me accomplish connecting a hosted FreePBX server to a local pfSense by way of OpenVPN “site to site”.
Does anyone have any pointers to provide any direction to go?? I really don’t know OpenVPN very well at all however I am very familiar with pfSense.
The System Admin VPN Server is set up to connect clients to your PBX, specifically phones with built in VPN Clients. If you see the main VPN page here:
You will see examples of how to connect non phone clients, which may give you enough info to adapt a client connection for pfsense.
On the other hand, if you get this working, there are a few of us that would like to have this weapon in our arsenal…
In fact my setup is targeted to endpoint connections, similar to what was described by @lgaetz .
I don’t have site to site working as there is no demand. For the clients my setup is straight forward:
- OpenVPN server is running on my pfSense appliance
- ‘remote access’ VPN is configured with certificate and username/password
- FreePBX seats on the private LAN behind pfSense
- the only trick is to tell Asterisk that VPN ‘address pool’ is local, I recently mentioned this here
