How to access pfSense by the real machine?
I'm studying pfSense (I'm actually going to start the pfSense studies of some YT videos but I'm stuck in configuration …).
I have VirtualBox installed on my notebook and I installed pfSense 2.3.4 on the virtual machine.
I configured it as follows (from videos I saw on YouTube). I got access in one way, and it's not the way I want it. I installed to be able to study, to test at home with my internet and such, with virtual machines, etc.
The first setup I did:
1. This setting was made for VMWare, from a video I saw on youtube. But I tested it in VirtualBox, but it did not work ...
Adapter 1: Host-only network adapter
2. This is another setting for another video, it also did not work:
Adapter 1: NAT
Adapter 2: Internal network.
3. This is another setup and was the only one that worked:
Adapter 1: Brigde mode plate: Wirelles adapter
Adapter 2: Brigde mode card: Ethernet adapter
Here comes my doubt.
In configuration 2, I can only access pfSense on the internal network between the virtual machines ...
In configuration 3, I can only access pfSense by my real machine if I connect the network cable in my note ....
However, I want to access the pfSense admin panel by the actual machine, but without having to connect the cable, because I need to get around with the notebook ... And even if I do the cable configuration, if I disconnect it does not work.
I wanted your help.
PS: I also did adapter 1 in NAT mode and adapter 2 in Host-only mode and also did not work ...
I also put it like this:
4. Adapter 1 - mode brigde - my wireless note card
Adapter 2 - host-only
Did not work too
I can ping my real machine but I can not access the panel ..
You can't if you aren't directly connected to the LAN-side with no NAT. VirtualBox ruins most of that all the time.
