Hey, I'm not sure if I need Help..



  • Based on the thread title I'm pretty sure you are thinking what does he mean..

    Well the thing is I have connected an old router behind PFSense and its working great. So well in fact I don’t understand what’s happening.

    I have connected my old router behind pfsense. I have my Ethernet connection coming from my ISP Box too my pfsense box. Another Ethernet coming from pfsense too my router and another Ethernet coming from my router too my switch.

    So a Router sitting behind pfsense and pfsense is in bridged mode.

    How is this working so well.

    How do I put my LAN on a different Sub Net; and also when looking for the I.P Address I cant find it under ifconfig or listed anywhere in my pfsense firewall. Their are no written I.P Addresses on the Router it self.

    Would I change my LAN I.p Address for my pfsense set up threw the terminal it self as in option (3) Reset to factory defaults; and then set up accordingly the LAN threw the main terminal it self.

    Such as 192.168.2.x and have pfsense on 192.168.1.1 ..

    Thanks.

    If the two interfaces in pfSense are bridged and you have allow all rules on both of them then all the traffic might just be passing though entirely. pfSense might not even have an IP address.

    What does it show at the console above the menu?

    Is there some reason it's bridged like that?

  • Pfsense in bridge mode suggests it doesn't even have a RFC1918 IP, and if you want one, same question as the other guy, WHY did you put in bridge mode then?  If currently works well, then why do you want to mess with it?

    Be aware posts tend to have very short life-span, u don't succintly explain yourself fully in a couple and we start to lose interest.

    Hey, apologises for the late reply.

    I have an I.P Address; i.e. an ISP Address assigned too pfsense what in currently in bridge mode with my ISP Box. pfsense is currently running on a custom server, and I have my old router behind pfsense, then too my switch.

    I think my old router is currently running as simply a switch with out any intelligence from the firewall side of things. So what I'm trying too do is run a firewall behind pfsense then too my rack switch but I'm wanting too put my systems on a different sub net and have everything segregated.

    Does that explain it better.

    Thanks.

    Ok, that sounds more like pfSense is not in bridge mode but is routing.

    I think a diagram showing what IPs exist where could help a lot here. The output from the pfSense console showing the interfaces would also.

    Reading between the lines though it sounds like you might just need a static route in pfSense pointing to the subnet behind your router. Assuming it really is routing.
    If it's just a switch you might be trying to add that subnet to the same network segment as the pfSense LAN.

    Steve
