PPPoE Server (Connecting over Unifi Mesh Points)



  • Hi there, My name is Finny

    I'm looking at using pfSense as a PPPoE server, and looking at connecting clients using UniFi Mesh Points.

    Unfortunately, it is not yet possible to set a management VLAN on Unifi Mesh Points, so I was thinking of setting the network up in the following way -

    Private LAN 192.168.1.x

    Mesh Points 192.168.2.x แทงบอลเงินสด

    I would run a Cloud Key on the private LAN, which has access to the internet for the Updates etc. The Mesh points I would connect to the second LAN, which has a rule to allow traffic from port 8080 (Inform port) through to the cloud key as the only rule.

    PPPoE server would be set to run on the Mesh Points LAN.

    That would mean I would still have management of the Mesh Units via the Cloud Key, but if a client was to disconnect their PPPoE router from the mesh point and plug a laptop directly into the Mesh point, as the Mesh Points network doesn't have internet access, they won't be able to circumnavigate the PPPoE requirements.

    Would this setup work?
