pfSense WAN IP not working on VMware Esxi in OVH network
I have installed VMware Esxi in a dedicated server on OVH. pfSense is installed by creating a VM and in that I have configured two ethernet(vmx0 and vmx1). vmx0 is connected to Public network and vmx1 is connected to private network.
I have tried configuring the WAN ip on vmx0 referring below tutorial
IP: Failover IP
Gateway IP: serverip.254
But it was not working.
So, I tried configuring same ip settings by creating another VM and installed ubuntu in it. After applying internet started working but the same doesn't work in pfsense.
I tried changing the subnet. Still it was not working
Please guide me.
@chazzy Did you get this working in the end?
I successfully run a virtualised PFSense instance in OVH. The only things I can say to watch out for are for virtual mac addresses and to make sure you have your firewall rules to allow some traffic through (I add a floating ICMP rule across all nics to allow basic IP checks).
