I'm having troubles with port forwards in my pfsense. I'm using pfsense 2.3.2-release-p1. I can't access them internally I found the option to enable NAT Reflection mode for port forwards and set this to Pure NAT. However I still can't access the port forwards from the internal network.
Options I have enabled:
-Enable NAT Reflection for 1:1: NAT disabled
- Enable automatic outbound NAT for Reclection disabled (i first enabled this, but it didn't help).
The port forwards are correctly, because I can access them from an external network.
It's probably because I have a double NAT. My setup is NAT (pfsense ip in DMZ) => NAT (pfsense) => LAN. The WAN IP of pfsense is an internal network address, so it's not the external ip.
Thank you for your help!
I have the same problem. I don't know what to do.

If none of the NAT Reflection modes seem to work for you, configure split DNS. Those are your only two options.
Also make sure you're not being HSTS'ed.
Have a look at these. See if they contain anything relevant to your issue.

Thanks for your answer. I'll be sticking with Split DNS then. It works, so no worries. The only issue is that I need to make multiple A records on my Dynamic DNS service and I can only create 2 for freeDNS.
