adding new subnet to existing WAN
I have a PPPoE WAN with a static IP address working fine as a NAT to my LAN.
My ISP had added a seperate /29 subnet to that WAN link, I would like to put these IP addresses onto a VLAN.
I have tried many configurations to get the pfsense to act as one of these new addresses so it can respond to ARPs and route traffic to the internet - but no joy.
Can anyone geive me a clue?
You need to make a Virtual IP under the Firewall tab. In there, give it the data your ISP provides, and activate it. There might be a couple more steps, but it's been a long time since I used this function. Sorry...
Here are some more instructions:
Thanks, have read that page several times. But still cannot get any ping responces or arp responces on the VLAN.

What VLAN? There's no VLAN mentioned in the linked page.
Just go the Firewall > Virtual IPs and add each IP of the additional /29 as type "IP alias" to the WAN interface. Then add rules to use them.
I think I may have resolved it still checking. Writing it up on the forum and having a meal/break clears your head.
will report tomorrow.
