pfSense 2.0 RC1 configuration of OpenVPN Server for Road Warrior with TLS and User Authentication
17/04/2011 / Stefan posted in Technical / 5 Comments VPN is very important service nowadays. The possibility to connect to remote network is very powerful feature used by single user accessing files at home to thousands of business users working remotely with applications and services available previously only on their desktops in the office. Because of that there are many alternative on the market providing such service. In this post I will focus on the OpenVPN running on the new version of pfSense 2.0 RC1. The goal is to compare the new features with the capabilities of the older 1.2.3 version. One of the reasons choosing OpenVPN was for the rich feature set, small system requirements the level of control. You can easily setup is up on virtual machine or on SoHo router. The possibility to authenticate users not by insecure usernames and passwords, but by certificates was very compelling. On 1.2.3 version of pfSense, instead of generating the certificates on the router, I was generating them on a Windows Machine. Following guidance from this sources: http://www.runpcrun.com/howtoopenvpn http://openvpn.net/index.php/open-source/documentation/howto.html#pki After generating all the required certificates, it was just a matter of copy / paste in the configuration. In the new 2.0 version of pfSense there is a Cert Manager. Using it you can manage your certificate on the box, not just pasting pre-generated certificates. The other new feature that we will use is User Manager. You have three options for central location of your users: local database, LDAP and RADIUS.For this post we will use local database, as it is the easiest way.
As a first step, let’s install the “OpenVPN Client Export Utility” package, from System > Packages. We will need it later.
Then go to System > Cert Management. On the CA (Certificate Authority) leaf, create new one. Take a note of the Descriptive and Common names you give it, we will need them later. Enter the rest of the details for the CA.
