Disable firewall filtering
I want to run pfsense as a router, so I check the Disable firewall filtering box in advance tab. If I checked the box, user can access from wan interface by ssh or telnet and browser. Can I use router function and keep the wan protect function. Please advice. (I tried to not use NAT function, it is not a good solution. Pfsense still keep a lot of default firewailll ruleset)
I would NOT disable pfSense firewalling.
I would put a "permit ip any any" as the first rule , on every interface that should be "open" (not firewaling)
You might have to repeat that rule with "permit ICMP any any"
Do NOT put that rule on the Wan interface , and you will have firewall protection there.'
Indeed I want to disable/delete all default rulesets which are created by pfsense. If I cannot do this, can i set rulsets have the highest priority then the default ruleset? Please advice.
