Hoping for some pointers
My first attempt at using pfsense, my goal was to create a 2nd network for lab purposes using pfsense as an internal firewall/router between my home network and the new LAB network, i.e. not as a traditional internet firewall.
My network hardware is very simple, ISP provided modem/router/wifi (BT HomeHub) plus an ubiquiti 5 port flex mini switch.
Story so far: I've installed pfsense (VM on ESXi) it has two interfaces, WAN & LAN, the LAN interface is on my original 192.168.1.0/24 network, the WAN interface is on a new 10.0.0.0/24 network. I can see the LAN interface from the existing network and I can see the WAN interface from a server on the new lab network (didn't expect pfsense to respond to pings but can see it in servers ARP tables) I've created an any-any FW rule on both interfaces, I think !! and I understand routing is implied between the two interfaces without any extra config. I've attempted an ssh from a 192 network server (with a static route added to point the 10 network at the pfsense interface with no joy.
I'm now struggling with troubleshooting this connectivity and am reaching out for any help in a methodical approach to solving it.
Thanks in advance
