    Default Port Forwarding through VPN Configure

    Hello dynamicdrive army,

    After couple of hours of trying and error, I am hoping to get some help here.
    I am trying to configure a Port Forwarding from one pfSense Router to another through VPN connection. Some more detail on the current network:

    pfSense A (192.168.2.0/24)
    | 192.168.3.1
    |
    |
    OpenVPN (192.168.3.0/24)
    |
    |
    | 192.168.3.2
    pfSense B (192.168.4.0/24)

    The VPN connection is working correctly and the traffic seems to be routed correctly as far as I can tell.
    I have added a Port Forwarding rule on pfSense A to forward port 80 to an IP address on the LAN network of pfSense B (e.g. 192.168.4.3) but that is not working. Port Forwarding to the LAN network of pfSense A (e.g. 192.168.2.3) is working normal.
    Is there any rule I need to configure on the firewall of pfSense B?
    Should I port forward to the OpenVPN interface of pfSense B and the forward again to the LAN address or should I try other VPN that offers port forwarding?

    Thank you all in advance for any help on this topic!

    I have used windscribe for a while and they also offer port forwarding https://www.vpntesting.com/reviews/windscribe/. I don't think there is really a difference which one you use, the easiest is to go with a provider that has this feature - Here's a list by maxwolfie from Reddit community.

    Does windscribe still offers port forwarding? I'm about to get this VPN but have some doubts. And in general, I have many questions regarding this VPN and its options because it seems to be unsecure in different cases. That's why I'm trying to find another products to use. Fortunately, there are many guides on the internet about the best VPNs that can be helpful even for dummies like me. For example, guys from PinpointVPN made an excellent review describing the best VPNs for 2021 in details. Thanks to them I was able to find a good product for my purposes.

    The average internet user is continuously exposed to dangers concerning online security and privacy. Companies and hackers are trying to collect personal information for their uses, and there’s not much an average user can do. To avoid the pain of connecting multiple devices individually, you can configure VPN directly to your router. Here to know how.

    I tried Ivacy vpn for a good time and they also offer port forwarding. I don't think it matters which one you use; the simplest option is to go with a company that offers this function.

    You can o set up port forwarding. You should enable port forwarding on your router. You can also use signal booster if your VPN is slow and you want to make it faster.
