Dear expert.

I currently setting up the OpenVPN to our network, its going fine, however I got a problem, this is how net looks like:

Internet -> (PFsense firewall) -> LAN

VPN tunnel:

Internet -> (PFsence firewall) -> LAN

Connection works great, however I got folders that I want to share in the net that net to access to. I know that I need to config something that the allow/recognize the net, I tried route settings but didn't really know how to do here.

Any help would be appreciate thanks.

Where do the openvpns terminate? Are they configured using tun (site to site) VPN on the pfsense firewall?

You need within the openvpn config include route rules that reflect the IPS on the side using push route.  I believe the openvpn client.conf and server.conf include examples for a site to site VPN.

You have a tunnel from location 1 to location 2 and they have one location 2 to location 1.

So you use remote VPN.  On the server you need to push routes including network to the client that must not be using segment.
