Multiple LAN interfaces - HUB/Switch

  • If you have a bunch of network ports on a pfsense firewall, is it possible to setup all the extra nics to work as if they were a switch?

  • Currently you can only bridge 2 interfaces at a time together.
    I'm not sure but i think this will change in a future release.
    (dont ask when this release will be ;) )

    Give 1.3 snapshot a try if you need only a machine acting as a switch with l3 filtering capabilities it should be functional.
    Note: that on 1.3 the bridge configuration is located on Interfaces->Asssing->Bridges and it allows to configure many more than 1.2 can.

  • Thanks for the help.
