Port Forwarding



  • I have the following: Cox Cable modem, pfsense current ver.

    Do I need to setup any port forwarding on the cox modem or let all traffic go straight to pfsense and let it do the port forwarding

    WAN IP: 192.168.0.72
    LAN IP: 192.168.1.x

    its not a modem if your pfsense wan is not public - its a gateway (modem/router combo) doing nat.  So you either need to put it in bridge mode so pfsense gets your public IP.  Or you would have to forward any ports you want to forward on pfsense - this would be double nat.  Your cox isp device might also support dmz host, where it forwards all ports to an inside IP.. ie your pfsense wan IP.
