Help with my setup on a Non-Nat and local ip subnet DHCP environment
I am trying to set a local and external network up on my pfsense box, but its proving difficult and not working as expected.
I have a block of IPs provided by my ISP, routed directly to me.
I would like to manually (statically assign) each server with a public IP, so all ports that each individual server opens so they can be seen from the internet. And all other computers here in my office, to be served a local ip from the local ip subnet. Is there any documentation to help me implement this or any help would be greatly appreciated
"I have a block of IPs provided by my ISP, routed directly to me. "
So this block is routed to you over what transit network?? Or is more what is common is they gave you say a /29 with 1 of those /29 being your gateway your suppose to point to.. This is completely different than a routed network.
If they routed your block to you, then you would have a transit network connection..
So for example lets say they gave you public 220.127.116.11/29, and your pfsense wan IP might be 18.104.22.168/30 You could then yes put that 22.214.171.124/29 behind pfsense and not nat it. But if all they gave you was 126.96.36.199/29 and told you to point to 188.8.131.52 as your gateway.. That is not a routed network.. You just have /29 hanging off their network. And sure you could use .2 - .6 as other VIPs on pfsense wan.. Placing those IPs behind pfsense would require subnet of that network or bridge..
