pfSense on WMware Workstation



  • Hello ,

    I am new in this world , so I hope I døn't ask stupid questions. I have a machine with WAN and LAN network cards. It runs on Windows 10 and I have installed VMware Workstation. I run pfSense on VMware.I have another machine with installed Windows Server 2016. I want to use pfSense as router and firewall, but I can't make the right settings ... .
    In VMware I added second network adapter . First network adapter, which is used by WAN is set on Bridged networking. WAN is set to em0 and use DHCP to set an IP (10.61.0.13/15). LAN is set to em1 and I set manually an IP 192.168.55.1 , also network prefix is set to 24.
    On Windows Server 2016 machine I set manually:
    IP 192.168.55.204
    mask 255.255.255.0
    default gateway 192.168.55.1
    dns 8.8.8.8
    The result is : no internet on Windows Server machine ..
    I found that :
    Valid interfaces are:
    em0 Intel(R) PRO/1000 Legacy Network Connection 1.
    em1 Intel(R) PRO/1000 Legacy Network Connection 1.
    Both interfaces are using the same network adapter. The second na is not visible and not assigned. I try to change options in VMware but without success.

    Thank you in advance



  • I read a bit more about it and I think I must use vSphere Hypervisor. Thank you
