    I would like to use the Nxfilter software along with the pfSense, so i installed it where the host of the VM is. However, after redirecting the DNS ip inside the DHCP Server (for all the LAN clients to use the IP of the machine where NxFilter was installed as DNS) i obviously don't have INTERNET since the IP is not actually resolving the requests.

    My goal is to achive something like

    Thank you all in advance!



  • Hi,

    Your clients did receive by DHCP an IP for the DNS server that is this 'host' (on VM) that is your Nxfilter ?
    If so, then all ok, you just have to make this Nxfilter thing work.
    How , Dn't know. Don't know what "Nxfilter" is.



  • I have set NxFilter on other VM inside the LAN created by PfSense. You can leave the DNS Resolver of PFSense and set an upstream DNS for NxFilter
    Just give a rule on PFSense to allow connections on port 53 for the new VM.
