Access webGUI when on subnet
I'm working on a school project and need a bit of help accessing the web GUI.
Simply put, we set up a VPC (Virtual Private Cloud) on AWS EC2 and it has public and private subnets. I've tried setting up a pfsense server on both the public and private subnets but in either case I cannot get a 'public' IP address in the form of xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx etc, I only have the 10.0.0.x address. How may I access the webGUI interface for setting up/configuring pfsense? - Is it even possible in this situation?
Thank you in advance for any help you can offer! - Apologies if this is in the wrong forums section in advance too.
That should be explained here:
It will have a public IP that is NAT'd to the 10.0.0.x IP in AWS.
I'm afraid that does not help me. Despite the fact that I installed the pfsense on the public subnet of my VPC, it only has been assigned a private IP address by aws. I'm not sure if that's an amazon issue, or if I set something up wrong, but there's no public IP address assigned to the pfsense instance.
It will have a private IP directly but that should be mapped to a public address in AWS.
You can assign an elastic IP to it if not for some reason.
Thank you! That solved my problem.
