Pfsense as a WAN to WAN Router



  • Hello Guys,

    I was wondering...

    Can you use Pf sense as a WAN to WAN Router?

    I bought myself 2. Pf sense Rack boxes ...

    In my Rack space I have an 1G Uplink with a /27 and a /28 Subnets and before I supply my VMs Static IPs and rock it with ufw I would like to have control over it.
    Maybe Shape traffic set some rules etc...

    Do you guys think I can use that Pf sense Boxes for that?

    I was only using Pf sense in WAN to LAN applications as IP Sec or Nat etc it worked out just Gorgias.
    I don't want to use a Juniper Router because it's expensive and I don't have that money.
    And I'm not a big fan of junos bc I just don't have the time to learn that stuff.
    So I was wondering if I could use pfsense as my WAN to WAN Router?
