Public ip passthrough - PPPOE over fiber

  • Hello all

    I am having some issues trying to use pfsense to passthrough public IP addresses from my ISP and would like to ask the community for a bit of help. My ISP is using PPPOE over a fiber network, I have a business plan with one static ip and on top of that I have a /29 range of additional IPs.
    Using Pfsense my first IP comes up as the WAN address and I am able to use the other IPs as ip aliases and port forward to servers within my lan and other Vlan.

    Would I would like to do is passthrough the /29 range to VMs behind my pfsense box and use the public IPs on the servers them self's without using a NAT or port forwarding.

    Something like Pfsense > Vlan > VM on its own vlan with public IP

    For the life of me I just can't work out how to get this kind of setup to work, if anyone out in the community has a setup like this I would really like to know how they where about to set it up.

    If the remainder of your IP addresses are in the same subnet as the WAN, that isn't likely to work. Normally bridging might work but I doubt that bridging to PPPoE would result in a working setup.

    If they routed you the /29 to a WAN IP address in a different subnet, then you could just assign addresses from the /29 to a local interface directly.

  • Can't you use static routes ?

    Depends on what exactly you're referring to, but generally speaking, no, static routes have no relevance to what's being discussed here.
