If you have a PFsense gateway you can already set the gateway as a VPN client, but what if you don’t want that, and instead you want to set the VPN connection on a machine/machines behind a PFSense gateway, but you don’t want to set split tunnel on that machine and also you want to be able to have some services that are ported forward through the gateway and they must be accessible outside of the LAN even if that machine is connected to VPN.
One simple solution is to rewrite any incoming connection on a specific port as if it comes from the LAN with this approach you can have the benefit of an interrupted connection with some specific services even if you connect or disconnect on VPN, and you can also control that VPN connection from the machine behind the router not from the router directly.

Looking at the recent statistics we can surely see that VPN has a low but steady increase, in some countries usage is above 20% and I think the future of VPNs is rather unpredictable.
Now what I like about VPNs is that they mess with the AD system of every major Tech company when you use a clean browsing session(no cookies/ no-cache/ no previous browser data in general), so you go on youtube or google and see an AD designed for a Czech citizen and that is pretty awesome.
As I don’t like how ADs are influencing the world, and I think if a company like Facebook which makes over 15$ from a user, at least 5$ from that sum should be either directly given back to the user or put into a pool and hold a poll in which all users can vote publicly to decide where the money goes, also the choices you be selected by users from a very large selection of choices.
