Video suggestion: Using a VPS as an OpenVPN “jump server” to access LAN behind pfSense

I posted this question on the Networking section, but it seems that despite the interest nobody came up with a solution, so I’d like to suggest a video on this solution. I’m particularly interested in understanding whether there is an additional security benefit on not opening inbound ports on pfSense.

Just use OpenVPN at home, putting a jump box in between adds to the complexity but not necessarily to the security.

Thank you @LTS_Tom, but would you mind elaborate why it would not add to the security? I thought not opening inbound ports on pfSense would help with security.

You are just moving the point of access to be the jump server. Also, OpenVPN is a well vetted solid protocol for access.
