Before I install pfsense



  • Hi all

    I am a newbie and before I try and install and incorporate pfsense into my home network I have a question.

    I want to secure all my home traffic through my VPN provider

    Issue I have is I need my two Xbox,s and my Xfinity Xi6 STBs need to go through my regular ISP WAN. My STBs are all connected over Wi-Fi so I cannot have two LAN interfaces (one for ISP and one for VPN) because I only want to keep my one WiFi network.

    So I was wondering if I can use one interface for LAN but two different subsets. Still connect all my wired connections and my Wireless AP to this single interface. Have one subnet send traffic through VPN and other subnet traffic to ISP, is this possible?

    You don't need to split into different subnets, you can just Policy Route by source IP.
    I highly recommend you to check out the great OpenVPN as a WAN hangout (https://www.netgate.com/resources/videos/openvpn-as-a-wan-on-pfsense.html) to give you a general overview what's possible and how it's done.
