Openvpn question

i have openvpn running on a bare metal pfsense firewall. accessing internal resources from the internet works fine. no problems setting up users, they all work fine from the internet.
my problem is this:
lan clients cannot connect to openvpn on said pfsense instance. i want to do this to make sure .ovpn files actually work before sending to the person in need of it.

connecting from always fails with a timeout (i can telnet to the open vpn port and it connects then fails, because , telnet) .

the exact error is " TLS Error: TLS key negotiation failed to occur within 60 seconds (check your network connectivity)
TLS Error: TLS handshake failed"

this has to be something simple i am missing somehow. perhaps a firewall rule?

yes thats it

aha thats the issue then. i guess loadign the profiles up on my phone and coming in from the internet via the cell network will have to do.

verizon has not rolled out IPv6 here , yet.
