Disabling NAT and running in bridge mode? In a VM?

  • Has anyone got the bridge mode support to work in a vm environment? i have tried several times and it hangs every time just after i enable the bridging piece.
    If anyone has any recommendations I would appreciate it.

  • Bridge mode in ESX anyone? I have tried several times with no luck. Any ideas and suggestions.

  • ESX always uses bridge modus(NAT is a Vmware Server/Workstation feature), and works just fine with pfSense(why wouldn't it ?).

    ESX: In ESX you normally connect a physical interface to a virtual switch. Then you can connect your VM's to your virtual switch.
    So if you want pfSense to function as a router/firewall, you should at least create 2 virtual switches, for example WAN and LAN.
