Is there any example of basic configuration for 3-arm firewall with pfSense?



  • Hello,

    I had finished installing pfSense 1.2.2 on a server with 3 NIC to be my firewall.

    NIC1 for WAN with Public IP, I have 14 public IPs from my ISP.
    NIC2 for LAN with private IP, as 192.168.1.0/24 for example.
    NIC3 for DMZ with private IP , as 192.168.20.0/24 for example.

    I had set some rules to allow LAN to access internet or WAN, it's ok but I can't do the following :
    1. I can't access DMZ from LAN and I can't access DMZ from internet too.
    2. I can't use FTP, SSH from LAN to DMZ. I have to do some work with server in DMZ from LAN.

    These are my questions?.

    1. How to solve these problem?. Is there any example or pattern of basic configuration for 3-arms firewall with pfSense.?

    2. I have to put some server to DMZ, web server, E-Learning server, DNS and etc. Which is the good idea to assigned IP address to these servers, Public IP or Private IP. For my first time, I had assigned private IP to them.

    Thanks a lot in advance for any recommends. I had spent more than 2 weeks for solving these problem but it still not work.





  • Thank you very much Perry. I will try it.



  • Wow…..it's still not work. Could anyone has some recommends?.



  • You need to provide a LOT more information.
    What steps did you take.
    How do you test that something "doesnt work".

    Screenshots of your rules!
