I was wondering if someone else has this setup and has experience the same issue as me.

My setup Im using pfSense 2.2.4 with OpenVPN server and squid and squidguard everything is fine on that part. I then implemented WPAD on my windows server which gives the DHCP and the proxy PAC is hosted on pfSense. Everyone on the LAN gets forced into the Proxy automatically no issue here. Here is where it gets nasty....So if site 1 has pfSense with WPAD and the user wants to connect to the VPN using OpenVPN to site 2 which it does not have WPAD it will connect and you can navigate and such. But you cannot access the webGUI of pfSense or any other device in the the LAN of site 2 for some odd reason WPAD forces the users ONLY for OpenVPN i tried the same setup with PPTP works flawless I also tried with L2TP also works perfectly its only with OpenVPN not sure why? Also side note if i disable "automatic detect proxy settings" i can access the webGUI with OpenVPN but it defeats the purpose whats odd is how come It can work with PPTP and L2TP

Thank you

function FindProxyForURL(url, host) 
    if (isPlainHostName(host) ||
        shExpMatch(host, "*.local") ||
        isInNet(dnsResolve(host), "",  ""))
        return "DIRECT";
    return "PROXY";
