Linode as OpenVPN AS - Inbound port forwarding to client
I moved recently and my current ISP doesn't blocks all inbound ports to customers.
Long story short, after a excessive argument with them I needed an alternative way to route my inbound traffic so I set up a linode to use as an OpenVPN gateway.
That part works fine, I configured my linode as a OpenVPN AS and connected my pfsense firewall as a client.
Outbound traffic works perfectly however I'm having difficulties setting up port forwarding or simply allowing all incoming traffic to be allowed through either.
I have spent quite a substantial time researching the internet however I did not find the information I was looking for…or I may have implemented it incorrectly and it didn't work…
Could someone shed some light what I'm missing here please?
setup an pfsense box within Linode
then setup an IPsec tunnel between your local pfsense and the linode one.
Add a gateway on the linode pfsense pointing to the local one and again on the local one back to the linode one…
you will then do a port forward to the gateway and again on your local one to push to the local server…
might make things a bit simpler for you
