    2.Two VM machines, pfSense firewall and windows server 2016.

    I'am trying to configure the windows server to go through the pfSense, so i chosed a internal network from Virtualbox initial setup.
    The windows server take it's ip through DHCP normally, and am able to access the pfSense from the windows server web browser.
    But, Ican't go the internet.
    The windows server dosn't see the WAN interface of pfSense and Vice versa.

    Did you check what your WAN IP is? By default LAN IP on pfSense is 192.168.1.1 but sometimes default IP-pool from ISP equipment is 192.168.1.0/24 and in this case you have to change LAN IP-subnet.
    Did you connect your server to LAN port or OPT?
    What are your Outbound NAT Rules and Firewall Rules for LAN/OPT?
