EdgeRouter + OpenVPN Road Warrior Example

Generate Certificates With EasyRSA 3

You'll need to generate server, client, and DH certificates using the instructions here.

Once you do that, copy the server certs (ca.crt, server.crt, dh.pem, and server.key) to:

/config/auth/openvpn/

On the EdgeRouter.

Also generate some client certs either now or later. You'll need them to put the contents inside of the client ovpn file.

EdgeRouter Configuration

On the EdgeRouter, make changes where appropriate. Subnet 192.168.0.0/24 should be whatever your LAN subnet behind the EdgeRouter is. If your subnet is one of the common ones that is by default (like 192.168.0.0/24), there's a good chance your clients may have issues if their LAN also matches yours.

You can use NAT rules to avoid having to change your LAN addressing scheme.

NAT Rules To Work Around Same Subnets On Both Ends

If you have a subnet on your LAN side that is one of the common default ones on most consumer networks (like 192.168.0.0/24), you'll need to use NAT rules to setup a NETMAP to work around conflicts.

Example:

Server LAN: 192.168.0.0/24
Client Range: 10.10.10.0/24
NETMAP Range: 172.30.254.0/24

The NETMAP range is the IP range that will be directly mapped to your LAN range and the range your clients will use to connect to devices on your LAN (aka, if your clients need to access 192.168.0.5, they will use 172.30.254.5 instead).

set service nat rule 1000 description OpenVPN-Mobile-vtun0
set service nat rule 1000 destination address 172.30.254.0/24
set service nat rule 1000 inbound-interface vtun0
set service nat rule 1000 inside-address address 192.168.0.0/24
set service nat rule 1000 log disable
set service nat rule 1000 protocol all
set service nat rule 1000 type destination
