Hello I'm new,

need some help. I am running Proxmox 5.0.23 on my Server and installed Pfsense in a Virtual Machine. Now I use OpenVPN to access some Services in my LAN. Everthing works but Proxmox is not available. I can't ping the IPv4 adress and read something about internal firewall on Proxmox in the Internet. How can I access Proxmox from my VPN Lan ? The Firewall rule on Pfsense is already created.
PVE needs to have a configured interface in the LAN you're giving access to via OpenVPN.
be warned, if you close now promox ports to the outside (why else woudl you use vpn)
then you have the chicken egg problem when doing upgrades and such
if you do so install anohter openvpn on the host as an emergency access too and close promos to the outside world
