Connect two subnets
I have the following setup to configure:
Subnet 10.121.1.0/16 <–-LAN 10.121.254.1--> Pfsense <--WAN 10.120.251.1--> Subnet 10.120.4.0/16
On both subnets I have a Windows server 2008R2 platform to check the with pinging the routing between the two subnets.
To make life a bit more easier I have turned off firewall on the pfSense and on both Windows-servers. However I;m unable to ping from subnet 10.121.1.0 to 10.120.4.0 and vice versa.
I already have tried to add static routes to my pfSense, but no progress. Now the noob-questions:
- Do I need to add a static route on the windows-platform of the 10.120.1.0 subnet to ping to the PfSense (such as route add 10.120.4.0 MASK 255.255.255.0 10.121.254.1). When I do this my TRACERT gets stuck at the default gateway 10.121.254.1)
- How should I configure the static route in the pfSense such that I can route between both subnets?
Thank you for the help!
Since both subnets are connected to pfSense, there is no static route needed on pfSense.
You only need a static route on computers on which pfSense isn't set as default gateway, otherwise the packets are directed to the gateway. Is it on both servers?
I have no static route configured on both pc's. But both are having pfsense as default gateway 10.120.254.1/10.121.254.1. Strange thing is thst when i use ping from the gateway itself i can ping both subnets.
And what rules did you put on the opt interface? Are these machines/devices running in the different network running their own local firewall - that would be blocking the other network?
