I am trying to set up to separate LANS to access the same WAN connection.
all works fine with WAN<->LAN
I recently added a 3rd NIC to the system and would like to use this to connect a physically separate network to the same WAN. I created some basic firewall rules and re-run the traffic shaper, hoping that would create the proper configuration but no wan or GUI access to pfsense on that network.
I also renamed OPT1 to LAN2.
A computer connected using LAN2 will get a DHCP address and correct DNS/GATEWAY settings but will not access anything, not even the pfsense.
is it possible to do this? any specific rule I should set on the firewall?
thank you in advance!!
Have you enabled outbound NAT for LAN2?
I am about to right now. thanks for the hint.
I think what you say is related to:
Just Set NAT to manual and setup the two rules.
one for LAN1 and one for LAN2
LAN2 same issue. cant ping or enter GUI
ipconfig /all shows all info to be ok.
You dont need to enable AoN to be able to access the internet from LAN2.
A simple "allow; source = LAN2_subnet; sourceport = any; destination = any; destinationport = any" rule is sufficent.
still no luck… attached are my rules... at this time.
In the very last screenshot, LAN2 is only allowed to use outbound TCP, which is why pings aren't working; change the rule to "any" protocol and try again.
thank you for our reply. just came back and it was one of the things I changed.
I changed that and disabled/reenabled the traffic shaper.
then the internet flow started working. thank you very much for your input.
