Help with my setup on a Non-Nat and local ip subnet DHCP environment



  • Hello All,

    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

    Regards
    Dean

    "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 4.5.6.0/29, and your pfsense wan IP might be 1.2.3.2/30  You could then yes put that 4.5.6.0/29 behind pfsense and not nat it.  But if all they gave you was 1.2.3.0/29 and told you to point to 1.2.3.1 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..
