Pre install Question
Not sure exactly where the correct place is to install the firewall but is this possible?
modem > pfsence > switch?
Pfsence would be installed on a Dell poweredge with 2 ethernet ports that would be shared to the switch?
switch is a netgear gs748t
That’s exactly where you put a pfsense box. However... you say your Dell has 2 Ethernet ports shared to the switch. I don’t know why you say that. It should be 1 to the modem and 1 to the switch. Then set your pfsense box with a WAN (to the modem) and with a LAN (to the switch).
Ahh ok i said that because i though thats how it was done. You take one of the lan ports, share the connection so it send the signal to the switch.
You take one of the lan ports, share the connection so it send the signal to the switch.
I still don't know what that means - share the connection.
In my attached example picture, this pfsense box only has 2 ports - WAN and LAN. You would plug the WAN port into an available port on your modem, and the LAN port goes to your switch.They are 2 separate ports, going to 2 separate devices.
