PFsense segragating two networks w/ client isolation
Just want to than everyone who is contributed to PFSense especially the ones who developed it and made it happen. This has to be the F#$ING SICKEST BEST FIREWALL I have ran for about what 2 years almost. And I have to admit it's damn good.
My project running PFSense is great with captive portal, giving free wifi access to my neighbors and what not but now I am hosting more critical files on my network. So now I would like to seclude my network from theirs. I'm a bit novice to this but understand enough to navigate with some guidance so all help would be greatly appreciated.
What I want to do is run a 10.0.0.x subnet for my personal computers, run 192.168.1.x for the neighbors and seclude them from communicating with my network and with each other. Is this possible?
I've tried a 2nd LAN optional interface; I get an IP from the 2nd Nic Card (well it's third but not including the WAN interface) and all options I enable even static gateway address it doesn't go past the router. I even set the rules for the firewall cloning the original default configuration for the initial rule set but still no go. Am I missing something?
If it's not too much trouble can someone point out some step by steps to get this running?
Thanks again and great work to the developers and contributors.
This is much easier than you might have thought. Just setup another interface (either another physical card or a VLAN). Block all traffic from WAN (as default) and allow Neighbours to only reach WAN. So the rule must be LAN -> WAN open, everything else on the neighbour's LAN blocked.
:) SWEET! Thanks I think I got it however a bit confused on the LAN -> WAN open. Are you referring to the Source/Destination section?
BTW I really appreciate your help so thanks again
i just meant that you allow LAN(private)-> WAN and LAN(public) -> WAN in the Rules section (Source/Destination) but disallow LAN(public) -> LAN(private). If you want to access LAN(public) from LAN(private) then allow it, otherwise block it.
