I received my GL-AR150 yesterday and am pleased with it. Right now, I’m getting to know 2.25 firmware. Yesterday I loaded DD-WRT and was a little disappointed with it. Client - repeater mode is not supported on this version, hence, I could not use it to bypass hotel captive portal with certainty. OpenVPN looked full featured, though.
Reloading GL firmware went smoothly after I learned the hard reset method where I waited for the 5 blinks.
The GL-AR150 came almost pre-configured for client - repeater mode. I just had to change some connection settings and it powered up well. Later I will use mac address spoofing, if needed, to bypass captive portal in hotel rooms.
OpenVPN using my commercial service, VPN Unlimited, fired up nicely. They provided the config files. Flawless.
My problem … I can’t get my home pfSense site to site configuration working with it. DD-WRT works well on another router. The shared key download uploaded but errored out saying something about only one tls-key or secret needed. The normal client / server configurations didn’t work either.
My question: How to configure pfSense, either site to site or normal server / client mode, to work with this implementation of OpenVPN. It’s probably only 1 or two lines in the config file. pfSense has a nice configuration downloader that works perfectly on windows and android for client/server mode. It also has a shared secret downloader for that type of server … it worked well with DD-WRT as a client.
What should the GL-AR150 config file look like and which server should it connect to … site to site or normal server/client?
