Single web server behind PFSense box.



  • Hello all,

    These past two days have been terrible as I attempt to figure out this puzzle. My ultimate goal is to have a web server hosted internally, that is able to be accessed externally. I have tried all sorts of things, adjusting the NAT, making new rules in the NAT, adding Firewall rules, making sure that the webDirect for the PFsense GUI isn't enabled. I've searched and searched and have come up short handed. I'm simply at a loss as of the moment.

    Here is the way I have my network configured.
    Modem>PFsense>24 port un-managed switch, Web server.(192.168.1.25)

    I'm able to access the web server internally, but whenever I try it from my external, I end up with nothing.

    Thanks in advance!

    All you need to do for this is simple port forward, clickity clickity done..  It will auto create the firewall rule for you - the only thing you might have to do is move the rule up the wan list if you had something that would block it.

    Forward your ports 80 and 443 to whatever IP 192.168.1.25

    Then test from outside.  If no work then check the troubleshooting doc https://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/Port_Forward_Troubleshooting

    And by that, do you mean create the PF under the NAT Tab? If so, I already tried that and had no luck. Is there anything that I need to setup extra on my IIS Server?
