Now that I have my pfsense router up and running, I’m trying to set up some rules to allow the “smart” TV and the fire sticks in the house to just bypass the VPN.
It seems pretty straightforward enough, but it’s just not working.
First I set up an Alias, and I plugged in the IP address belonging to the “smart” TV.
Then I went over to rules, and created a rule…
…that utilizes the alias I created…
…and sends it through the unprotected gateway
Right? What did I miss? Amazon and Netflix still tell me they’re being routed through a VPN and won’t let me stream. I’ve tried resetting the state tables, restarting the TV, nothing yet. I’m not sure what else to try.
Edit: Nevermind? It seems to have started working after a half hour or so of waiting around. I added the fire stick in the bedroom to the alias and that’s also working so…yay I guess?
