Accessing Port Forwards from Local Networks
I have a antivirus server which communicate on 14000 port I forward the port in my Pfsense WAN link for my users due to lock down now my office is open for some users I want to communicate my users with my WAN link in my office LAN how can i communicate my users laptop with my antivirus server please give me any solution.
Thanks for reply but this not works for me is their any alternative solution I have not DNS name for Kaspersky I uses IP address for connectivity.
Have you tried the NAT Reflection method?
You can enable NAT Reflection also in the NAT rule for 14000. Try out "pure NAT", if that doesn't work try "NAT + proxy".
Kaspersky I uses IP address for connectivity.
Why would you do that? Use a fqdn, so you don't have to touch every single machine if your public IP happens to change..
There are plenty of FREE dynamic dns options, if you don't actually own a domain. But at a loss to how a place of business doesn't have a $10 a year domain they could use.. There are plenty of free and not free services to do ddns with your own domain.
Or you can just set this fqdn to point to your IP statically.. Since how often does it change?
@viragomann Yes I try NAT Reflection method but not work well for me.
@johnpoz Thank you but their is problem with free DNS or paid DNS our IS team are not allowed us to do this because its compromise for system these type of free dns leaks the information which is not good for us thats why I try to resolve this issue by using pfsense.
What? You buy a domain lets call it domainX.tld - and you point that to your IP.. How does that compromise anything? The whois info to who owns that domain can be hidden.. It only points to an IP..
Every company on the planet has this info out there.. Who are you hiding from?
If you want to hit ip 126.96.36.199 which is your public IP while your internal, then nat reflection is how you do that.. If your saying its not working - then show us what you setup so we can help you figure out what your doing wrong.
Are you behind a double nat, if so nat reflection would have to be done at the box that has the wan IP on it, if that is in front of pfsense.
Glad you have it working now.
If its working and your happy, then all is good.. But such a setup is not the "correct" way ;)
It makes no sense to send traffic to your wan IP, just to be hairpinned back to hit the IP sitting next to you on the lan..
Its like you want to go the dining room from the kitchen in your house - but hey lets go out the front door and back in to get there ;)
