I recently switched to a new domain and had to update the pfsense hostname and domain for my remote lab as well as changing the dynamic dns config and then finally exporting the new vpn files with openvpn client exporter. Now after performing this change remotely everything worked fine and I was able to access the firewall with the new vpn config.
I decided to do a reboot after this change but after rebooting pfsense no longer works, by that I mean I cant connect to it via VPN and since this is my remote lab at my sister’s place I also took out her internet.
There was no change other than the one listed above so I am not sure what the issue is. Local to the firewall, my sister is not getting a DHCP address and after guiding her how to setup a static address on her laptop she tried pinging pfsense and nothing. (I have 2 pfsense firewalls at my sisters and I did this to both since it was working after i tested it on one and now she cant access either).
I have absolutely no idea what has gone wrong here, any suggestions? Also before doing this on my remote systems I did try it out locally and it did not cause any issues. All the firewalls are identical.
