Simple Bridge WAN to OPT1 and OPT2. Firewall just wont let traffic in/out!
I put this in the install section, but this is probably more appropriate for the firewall section.....
Diagram attached to clarify.....
I have a 4 port PfSense. WAN, LAN, OPT1, OPT2
WAN to LAN works great.
As there are 5 static IP's from the Internet provider (all VIA DHCP on assigned MAC address)
I have created a bridge that includes WAN, OPT1, OPT2.
So far so good. The two servers on OPT1 and OPT2 do get DHCP addresses. All good there.
I have tried every iteration of firewall access option I can think of, but I must be doing something wrong.
Allow all from WAN, allow all on OPT1 and OPT2 to WAN etc....
I have also played with bridge=1 in the system/advanced.
I just cant get any traffic to flow between the WAN interface and the two OPT ports.
What am I missing? Help really appreciated. I must be doing something fundamentally wrong.
Is BRIDGE the wrong method?
I have OPT1 and OPT2 set to none for addressing, as it should pass-though to the server NIC's. That seems to work fine.
I have also seen that creating this bridge also creates another interface called bridge. I have enabled that, and tried opening the firewall fully on that as well. No luck there either....
