Access modem page behind 'static' WAN



  • Hello,

    I have a fiber modem at 192.168.18.1. My WAN is setup as 'Static IPv4'. I have setup a Virtual ip address 192.168.18.10/24 like so

    3940309b-4225-4e93-944f-70031366950e-image.png

    With this, i am able to reach modem port 80 from the firewall.

    However, i am unable to ping the modem from LAN. I have the following outbound NAT defined,
    e91099ac-44fa-47ad-92b5-a70a66ae157d-image.png

    But i am unable to ping the modem from LAN network

    $ ping 192.168.18.1
    PING 192.168.18.1 (192.168.18.1) 56(84) bytes of data.
    ^C
    --- 192.168.18.1 ping statistics ---
    3 packets transmitted, 0 received, 100% packet loss, time 2073ms
    

    Any idea how do i access the modem from LAN?

    Thanks

    Reply to ping is actually an optional thing.

    Use a browser and type http://192.168.18.1 will normally do the trick.
    If the modem has a GUI - if the GUI is listening on port 80, etc.

    edit : normally, the gateway motoring system, tests the upstream gateway by pinging to it.
    That would fail .... How are you monitoring ?

    Unfortunately, no it does not open from the LAN network.

    $ telnet 192.168.18.1 80
    Trying 192.168.18.1...
    

    From firewall itself it opens,

    [2.4.5-RELEASE][root@pfSense.lan]/root: telnet 192.168.18.1 80
    Trying 192.168.18.1...
    Connected to 192.168.18.1.
    Escape character is '^]'.
    


  • In outbound NAT rules, i specified the Interface address as VIP address,

    Now it works! Solved!
