with up dates now
I am quite new to pfsense and i already read all posts concerned to my situation and i already arrived here .
Follewed pfsense instalation in vm e.t.c
I cannot access webgui on 192.168.1.1
and when i finish instaling pfsense I GOT :
lan – em0 ----- 192.168.1.1
wan -- plip0 ------- 0.0.0.0 dhcp
i can ping 192.168.1.1 from pfsense console
in vm virtual network eidtor summary i have :
vmnet0 (bridged) bridged to smc 255.255.255....
vmnet1(host only) private network shared with the host 192.168.19.0 enabled
vmnet2 (bridged) bridged to broadcom 255.255.255....
vmnet8 (nat) used to shre host ip address 192.168.234.0 enabled
My configuration is :
have 2 card on server wan and lan
host ip on wan is 41.***.***.*** from my cable modem
lan ip is 192.168.2.7
in the wan connection window shows my vmwan connection with ip 192.168.234.1
and vmlan with ip 192.168.19.1
i try to change the lan to a static ip such as 192.168.1.10 but still cannot access gui
the lan part is connected to a belkin router
to this router i have an lynksys AP also and i connect a laptop to this AP
When i try to access the webgui nothing happend just an error page.
Can someone pleass help make this configuration work
also if some one could be kind to me and help set the ips i get a bit condused

I am guessing since this was last edited in May that you have since fixed the problem.
For others researching similar problems,
-You must use bridged interfaces for pfSense inside VMware otherwise it will not see any traffic.
-Whatever network interface you use for WAN, turn off all protocols other than VMware binding in the host OS.
If you do not, it will most likely use up your WAN IP address and a) block pfSense from having a valid IP on WAN
and b) leave the host computer open to the internet to be pwn3d by the world
-after this, the only way for yout host system to access the internet is thru the virtual firewall
