Access WANs networks from LAN



  • hello,

    We have set Pfsense (latest) with 3 WANs, 1 native and 2 VLANs. WANs are set as static IPv4 using each router network (172.16.1.x WAN1, 172.16.2.x WAN2, 172.16.10.x WAN3).

    We need to be able to access the ISP routers from inside the LAN.

    Best regards

    So do so.. There is nothing stopping you out of the box from access an IP on wan network.. Your default rules on lan are any any..  So for example you wan to access 172.16.1.100??  This would be allowed and natted to whatever pfsense wan IP in wan 1 is, say 172.168.1.1



  • Thought so too, but doent work. pfsense itself can ping the router IP, clients on LAN no (and thus no Web access to the routers..)

  • I had exactly this issue on my dual-wan setup.  The main LAN rule is using the Gateway-Group to load balance the WAN's, but for some reason I was having difficulty access my Modem UI pages.

    My solution was to add two rules above the LAN-Gateway group like this:

    Rule-1:  LAN to Modem-1 –> use WAN-1 GW
    Rule-2:  LAN to Modem-2 --> use GW 1
    Rule-3:  LAN to ANY -->  use GW Group

    Are you forcing traffic out some specific vpn or group like pwood999?  If so then you would need specific rules like he did to allow the access.



  • Yes, exactly.

    I have added the rules and it works fine now.

    Thank you all for your answers.
