A quick question from pfSense newbie

I installed pfSense VM on unRAID server. It is working nice and many thanks for such a nice software. I am not sure if it is a real problem, but I have a quirk on my installation.
First some info on my setup:
eth0: on mobo. static IP: 192.168.1.100
pfSense (Virtual Machine)
eth2: passthrough to pfSense, static IP: 192.168.1.1, LAN, connected to the switch
eth3: passthrough to pfSense, static IP: my public IP, WAN
My problem is that the host (192.168.1.100) is not accessible on LAN unless eth0 is connected to the switch. Is this normal? Isn't it possible pfSense and host communicate internally as both are on the same machine? Do I have to connect the host to the switch?
I would appreciate any help.

Since there is no internal connection between the host and pfSense, that's an expected behavior.
You may configure the eht2 as a virtual bridge instead of passthrough and give the host an IP on it, or add an additional virtual network and interfaces to both the host and pfSense for management access.
