NAT without Firewall



  • I use pfSense 2-4-4.

    All is working fine (routing, NAT, rules in Firewall).

    I'd like, for a few minutes, to have routing, NAT on WAN Interface, but no rules in Firewall.

    I've used System > Advanced > Firewall & NAT > Disable Firewall.

    Firewall is off: it's good. But I'dont find how to activate NAT.

    Is it possible (having NAT without rules in firewall) ?
    If yes, how to do ?

    Thanks for all.

    Best regards.

    Did you read the hints there?

    "Note: This will also turn off NAT! To only disable NAT, and not firewall rules, visit the Outbound NAT page."

    To only disable firewall on WAN add a temporary "allow any to any" rule to the top of the rule set.



  • Create a special rule ("allow any to any") named "temporary firewall disabled" on each interface is a good idea. I don't have think about.

    I don't have read the hints because I'd like to make the contrary (no rules with nat).

    Thanks for all.

    I'll test as soon as possible.
