Problems with Port Forward



  • Hi!

    Been reading the port forwarding trouble shooting but cannot seems to figure out what is wrong.

    I have the following setup:

    ISP->WAN(Pfsense, xxx.xxx.xxx.x)
    LAN (Pfsense 10.0.1.1) -> Swtich (clients. 10.0.1.10)

    I have  setup a port forward on 22290 to 10.0.1.1:22 (Works both from internal 10.0.1.0 network as well as when connecting from outside) (this is the pfsense box)
    I have setup up the same rules but 22280 to 10.0.1.10:22 (Only working when connecting from internal network)

    What could be wrong?

    Using Pure Nat
    TFTP proxy on WAN and LAN

    Using These Port Forwards
    WAN TCP * * WAN address 22290 10.0.1.1 22 (SSH)
    WAN TCP * * WAN address 22280 10.0.1.11 22 (SSH)

    And these firewall rules at the top for WAN

    IPv4 TCP * * * 22280 * none  
    IPv4 TCP * * 10.0.1.1 22 (SSH) * none  
        IPv4 TCP * * 10.0.1.10 22 (SSH) * none

    And these for LAN
    IPv4 TCP * * * 22 (SSH) * none

    Done snooping as well but can't see any obvious errors. Anyone have any idea what could be wrong?
    Don't get any specific things in the logs as well.

    Regards, D



  • Hi!

    Found the solution finally. Reset my firewall just to be sure.
    Found out the issue was due to default gatway was not set correctly on my client machine.

    Basically did this:
    route add default gw 10.0.1.1 eth1

    Now it seems to work!
