How to add username/password for fort forwadring in pfsense
We have a in-house developed software in our LAN. We don't want this software world accessible, but we want some people can access this software anywhere world-wide. And we don't want to use VPN.
Is there any way that for example we use port forwarding or something else except VPN, a user connect to the port, pfsense ask for username/password (or key/certificate), then pfsense forward it to the software in our LAN.
Any suggestion is welcome. Thanks in advance.

No. Instead, create your NAT so that only Source IPs defined by you are allowed in. That way you can limit access to just the computers/network you want. Either that or build authentication into your software.
Thank Kom, that's sad. Is there any opensource software to check username/password, so that pfsense port-forwarding to this software site in our LAN, then re-direct it to our software.

Could you not use a reverse proxy and have an authentication setup on there?
Thank Astraea, The reverse proxy may be a good idea. I have just searched and nginx in Linux can be used a reverse proxy. I'll investigate it deeply.
Still expect more suggestions.
