how to allow esp8266 to see my server locally behind pfsense
I’m setting pfsence up for the 1st time and haven't messed with much so you can call me a newbie, I intend on replacing my main router eventually. I’ve been testing it on my pc and a few servers behind the main router and like it, so the dilemma is I have an esp8266 that sends udp info to my server locally, both are on the same ip range wireless and wired, I have another wireless router for the family on a different range so the question is how do I replicate this behind pfsence, I have a wireless card coming so is it possible to create a vlan for both to be on the same range or even normally between to cards?
If they are on the same subnet, the traffic would never hit pfSense. If it doesn't work, check in your AP for a setting like "client isolation" and disable it.
If they are on different subnets and both of those subnets route through pfSense, such as a VLAN, then you'd just need to allow the traffic in your firewall rules.
