Check my port forward rule please



  • I need to forward UDP 5198-5199 to a particular machine on my network to run a program called Echolink. I have setup the port forward and the program is working correctly, but this being my first port forward rule on pfSense I was hoping someone could make sure I have done it right so as to not cause a security risk.

    Thanks!

    Well, you are forwarding those ports to the inside server from all internet addresses. It is up to that operating system and application to be secure.

    Your dest should prob wan address vs any.. But in the long run doesn't really matter on the forward rule.. Unless you had multiple wan addresses, etc.

    But as Derelict already stated once you forward - its up to your end devices your forwarding to be secure.

    Yeah Dest any is not ideal. Missed that.



  • Okay made the change to the 'dest'. Thanks for the help fellas..
