How to make pfsense to work with AD users?



  • Hi Guys,

    I'm new here as well as to pfSense and IT stuff. So in my lab setup I have a Win 16 DC with AD. I've configured some firewall rules, the problem is that the rules work fine if the DNS is given a pfsense gateway IP in a user system but the AD users somehow escape these rules. The DC itself seems to be fine where the firewall rules get applied. There's somewhere I'm messing things up. Kindly help me I'm stuck.

    If you're using firewall rules based on url aliases and the firewall is using different DNS to the clients they may be resolving differently and therefore not applying.
    If those URLs resolve to many URLs such as, for example, google.com they will likely never be effective as the IPs change frequently.
