Website behind PFsense firewall not visable from the internet

  • I hope there is someone that can help me

    I have the following setup

    static IP from my ISP

    modem which routes all traffic to the PFsense box IP adres

    connected to the PFsense box with two subnets

    my LAN  IP range from 192.168.1.x

    and a DMZ IP range from 192.168.2.x

    I have setup the firewall NAT
    Port forwarding
    WAN  TCP  25 (SMTP)  (ext.:  25 (SMTP)     
    WAN  TCP  80 (HTTP)  (ext.:  80 (HTTP) 
    WAN  TCP  21 (FTP)    (ext.:  21 (FTP)

    WAN  dmz

    the Firewall rules


    • RFC 1918 networks * * * * * Block private networks
    • Reserved/not assigned by IANA * * * * * Block bogon networks
      TCP  *  *  25 (SMTP)  *    NAT   
      TCP  *  *  80 (HTTP)  *    NAT 
      TCP  *  *  21 (FTP)  *    NAT

    TCP/UDP  DMZ net  *  53 (DNS)  * 
    TCP/UDP  DMZ net  *  53 (DNS)  *

    I enabled the NAT reflection

    But the website with ip adress isn't visable from the internet
    I can see it from my lan
    Can somebody please tell me what i did wrong


  • @wesey77:

    the Firewall rules


    • RFC 1918 networks * * * * * Block private networks

    Turn this off in the WAN settings page and try again.


  • removed that rule
    still nothing

  • Is your modem doing NAT? Then you will have to tell the modem to forward those same ports to internal IP address as well.

    By the way, I don't think this is your issue, but 1:1 automatically forwards every incoming port to a single internal IP, so it's redundant to forward certain ports when 1:1 is set up for the same server.


  • Oke found the problem
    I hard resetted the modem and now everything works fine

    Thanks for the reply's
