How can I access FQDN behind pfsense firewall



  • Hello, I just switched from a Juniper Netscreen to a pfsense firewall. I am having an issue routing to my own server behind the pfsense firewall.
    Example: If I try to access www.mypublicdomain.com I can not reach it. Nslookup resolves to the correct public ip address but I cant seem to get there from behind the firewall. I didn't have this issue with the Netscreen.  Is there a way around this without having to setup an internal dns server?

    nat reflection.  But its not really the correct solution.  If your server is behind pfsense, same place the client is why should use you go through pfsense just to get reflected back in.  As to internal dns, pfsense can be dns.  What are you using your isp or google/opendns directly on each client?
