Routing/Valid IP's For Both LAN and WAN Interfaces



  • Hello all,

    Is it possible to use static/valid-routable IP addresses on both the LAN and WAN interfaces?

    Example;

    1. I will have a /30 subnet (4IP's) for the WAN Interface
    2. A /24 for the LAN interface
    3. All IP's are valid and routable.

    Essentially I will have our network engineer route the /24 on down to the /30. On the PFsense I will route the /24 back up and out the WAN interface /30. That will give me two way traffic.

    So, I guess NAT will not be needed as I will be using valid IP's addresses. Is this possible?

    Thank you,
    Matt



  • You can turn NAT off in the SYSTEM / Advanced in the Traffic Shaper and Firewall Advanced Area



  • And then you can just apply the valid IP's and you are good to go right?  Perfect… Thank you for the response.

    I wouldnt do that.
    With this you disable NAT but you also disable the firewall function.
    A better way to do this is to enable "Advanced outbound NAT" (firewall –> nat --> outbound) and delete all rules --> NAT will no longer be applied.
