Pfsense Hyper-v VM and ISP router



  • Hi Everybody,

    I'm new to pfsense and security and i need your help setting up my pfsense to monitor my home network.

    I was able to install and setup a pfsense virtual machine on Hyper-V server 2012 R2. I can access the web interface from my LAN. What i need now is to make my pfsense VM as a firewall, so that i can monitor my network. I want all internal and external traffiic to trasit via this VM.

    For the time being my host machine is connected directly to my ISP router internet LAN port and i would like to keep it like this,if possible.

    Current network :

    ISP router LAN IP adress : 192.168.1.254  (host Machine connected directly to one of the 4 ethernet ports)
    PFSENSE LAN ADDRESS : 192.168.1.15
    PFSENSE WAN ADDRESS : 192.168.1.14
    GATEWAY (ISP ROUTER) : 192.168.1.254

    Thank you in advance for your help!!

    …What i need now is to make my pfsense VM as a firewall...

    And where's the question, e.g. what have you tried that didn't work?

    @TAB_TAB:

    PFSENSE LAN ADDRESS : 192.168.1.15
    PFSENSE WAN ADDRESS : 192.168.1.14

    This is never going to work.
    LAN and WAN have to be on different subnets for a router to function (Yes, there are exceptions but don't worry about them).



  • …and did you work your way through this guide https://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/Virtualizing_pfSense_under_Hyper-V already?



  • And why do you wan't to leave your hyper-v Host unprotected?
    In my eyes it should be behind the PFsense VM
