2nd router behind pfsence. Strict Nat.



  • Alright so for a variety of reasons I have a 2nd router on my network connected straight into my pfsense box.

    I have given the interface a DHCP server and set the firewall rules to be wide open.

    I can still get internet normally on that address but one of the clients is reporting that a game called For Honor is reporting he has a strict Nat.

    I was under the impression that I had basically created a open highway from my pfsence box to their router and that it could handle all of its own stuff and I wouldn't have to worry about it.

    Apparently when using the non pfsence router alone, the strict Nat type was not an issue.

    Here is my current setup...

    Modem------pfsence=====Netgear router
    ........................|
    ........................|
    ...………………My stuff



  • I figured it out. I needed to use 1:1 NAT for the routers ip.
