OpenVPN clients and Internet Access

For OpenVPN Remote Access clients to reach the Internet through the OpenVPN connection, Outbound NAT is required to translate their traffic to the WAN IP address of the firewall. The default Automatic Outbound NAT rules cover this, but if Manual Outbound NAT is in use, manual rules are necessary to perform outbound NAT on traffic from sources that include the OpenVPN tunnel network or remote network(s).
