Here is my setup
Pfsense built using snapshot on Tue Jul 22 21:50:49 EDT 2008
I didn't know what the description of this issue would be and where to start searching, so here is what i'm looking into:
- I would like to just use pfsense as a bandwidth monitoring box.
- I need to keep the LAN IP's static and Public (no private addressing)
- Would I even use NAT to complete this (1:1 ?)
I would appreciate any assistance given.
You could NAT 1:1, or you could use PFSense as a bridge. See here:
The gist is that in a bridge config, both interfaces will exist on the same subnet, but with different IPs. The PFSense will not provide routes, but may need some static routes if you have layer-3 switching immediately upstream or downstream of it.
