SSH From Wan to LAN

  • Hi Guys,

    I am new to PF sense over the past month or so I apologies in advance for my lack of knowledge.

    Currently I have a pfsense routing sip traffic to a development set up I have in Vsphere.

    I need to be able to route an incoming external SSH connection to a LAN IP of a test server.

    I have a firewall rule configured


    Source - Group of WAN IP addresses configured within an alias
    Port- 22 (SSH)
    Destination- LAN IP of internal server (Single host or alias)
    Port- 22 (SSH)

    If I run a packet capture I can see the inbound connection attempt hit the firewall
    I'm wondering if I have missed something here as im unable to reach the internal server.

    Many thanks for your advice

    other than
    firewall -> NAT -> port forward
    there is nothing else to do, rule should be automatically created for you

  • n_ipv4_sftp is an alias to my SFTP server IPv4 IP address in the DMZ.
