One PC on WAN full Access to LAN



  • Hey folks…

    i have this setup:

    The one computer, connected directly to the Router has the router IP as Gateway (router dhcp). My router is a Fritz!Box 7390.

    I need the computer connected to the router, to get access to the Lan Netzwork (192.168.178.0). I can't connect the computer to the pfsense, it needs to be connected to the router.

    I need the computer to be able to print, get access to other computers and get access to the nas in the lan. All Lan IP's and Ports.

    Is there a way without port forwarding?

    Let me know if you need more information about the setup.

    Thanks in advance



  • Is there a way without port forwarding?

    That depends on whether you're using NAT on pfSense.  If you are, no way.  If you aren't then it's just plain routing and firewall rules.

    Well yes, i use NAT.

    Then i'll 1:1 bind at least the most necessary devices to virtual IP's of the WAN.

    I need to add a Rule to allow the computer (on wan side) to get access to these 1:1 bound lan-devices right?



  • Any rules would be on pfSense, as that's where the firewall is.  A firewall on the computer would likely affect incoming connections only

    Yeah, that's what i meant. I tried id. I had to create a rule on pfsense side to give the computer on the wan side access to the printer on the lan side (1:1 bound to a virtual IP)

    Works pretty good. Thanks!

    I would VPN in. Get that crap off the outside and put it on the inside.
