OpenVPN Server behind IPFire

Is it possible to leave the OpenVPN server on IPFire turned off, and then port forward the OpenVPN traffic through to a server on the LAN? I know that this is not possible using IPSec, but before I just go and try, I figured I would ask.


Yes, I had used in the past a separate machine for OpenVPN (another IPFire box).

Port forward - OK

Thank you, and that makes sense. Here’s hoping that I can make it work!

It is possible, even with IPsec. IPsec only gets problematic when you are using it on IPFire and on a host behind it because it uses static ports.
