PfSense on Virtualbox



  • I have a 2006 Mac Pro and Virtual Box on that. It has 2 built in NIC cards and they are both bridged from virtual box. Adapter 1 in WAN and Adapter  2 is LAN. I plugged in a pc into the LAN and when I go to the pfSense web UI on the Mac Pro and it shows the pc and it has given it an IP address and I ping Google and it all seems to work until I go to my pc and open a website, it says that there is not internet connection but when I go to the settings it shows that it is connected to Mac Pro pfSense router. What do I do? Please help!

    I suspect the Mac may be getting in the way there.

    You might try setting up another internal VM and connecting both that and the pfSense LAN to an internal network only. Make sure that works first.

    Otherwise check for states in the pfSense state table from the client PC IP. Check for blocked traffic in the firewall log.
