Configuration of VLANS



  • I am having trouble setting up VLAN's on pfsense.

    I have created a 4-Port LAGG, which all my VM network traffic from Proxmox will travel over.

    I have created VLAN15, and added the VLAN15 on LAGG0 interface. I am using a HA setup, so my interface IP for the 2 firewalls is 10.15.0.2/24 and 10.15.0.3/24 with 10.15.0.1/24 as the CARP Virtual IP.

    From the proxmox host I have a 2-port bond, with the VLAN setup and I can successfully ping both firewalls on that interface. however, i can't get to external, if i try ping the DNS on 8.8.8.8 it fails (I am using 10.15.0.1 as the gateway address).

    Also I get the same issue when attempting to ping an external address from the switch.

    e.g.

    switch#ping 10.15.0.2 source vlan 15

    Type escape sequence to abort.
    Sending 5, 100-byte ICMP Echos to 10.15.0.2, timeout is 2 seconds:
    Packet sent with a source address of 10.15.0.220
    !!!!!
    Success rate is 100 percent (5/5), round-trip min/avg/max = 1/3/8 ms
    switch#ping 10.15.0.3 source vlan 15

    Type escape sequence to abort.
    Sending 5, 100-byte ICMP Echos to 10.15.0.3, timeout is 2 seconds:
    Packet sent with a source address of 10.15.0.220
    !!!!!
    Success rate is 100 percent (5/5), round-trip min/avg/max = 1/2/8 ms
    switch#ping 8.8.8.8 source vlan 15

    Type escape sequence to abort.
    Sending 5, 100-byte ICMP Echos to 8.8.8.8, timeout is 2 seconds:
    Packet sent with a source address of 10.15.0.220
    …..
    Success rate is 0 percent (0/5)



  • YAY!!!!!!

    I solved my own problem, posting for anyone else who's interested.

    I have outbound NAT set to manual, and I had not created any rules for this range.

    Once i created the rule to NAT traffic from that network, it worked.
