How to add my WiFi router at home to my pfSense+FreeRadius on AWS



  • I have a pfSense installed on AWS running FreeRadius to authenticate my devices connected to my router at home. I'm currently hardcoding my router's dynamic public IP on FreeRadius. How could I add my router IP address on my pfSense NAS/Clients section without having to change it each time my public IP is changed by my ISP?

    I would suggest running a VPN between the AWS instance and your home router (which I assume is pfSense, if not why not! 😉 ) so that the NAS IP is always the same private IP.
    The VPN itself can just use a dyndns entry or if you use OpenVPN it doesn't matter if the IP changes.
