VPN behind ADSL Modem/Router
Good day all,
I have a couple questions about how ipsec works and how to set it up in an abnormal way.
First, the setup:
I am having to deal with an ADSL router/modem that doesn't have bridging mode. I have my pfsense box behind that. The pfsense box receives a private IP from the dsl modem/router. The rest of my network is behind the pfsense box. I have ports 2-5000 forwarded from the modem to the pfsense box. I would like to establish a endpoint to endpoint IPSEC VPN connection from my pfsense box to an external network (external network has a public address).
Is an endpoint to endpoint ipsec tunnel even possible without a public address? If so, how do you specify the pfsense box on the first network? Is it just a matter of forwarding the IPSEC ports to the pfsense box? This is an issue I have never experimented with and will have have a hard time working since the other endpoint is in a different country.
Thank you for your help,
Is there an option in the ADSL modem/router interface to place pfSense in a DMZ? That would probably be the easiest solution.
What kinda of modem are you trying to use? PF-Sense has a built in PPPOE client, so if you can bridge the device it will work.
You would need pf-sense 1.2.3 that supports Dynamic DNS tunnels. So you would be in good shape.
There is no DMZ option.
If I'm understanding right. Your suggesting set up a dynamic address from dyndns (or the like) to my network. I already have that working. The dns will point to the DSL Router/modem. My question is how do I direct the tunnel to the pfsense box. The pfsense box is receiving a private IP from the DSL Router/Modem.
Thank you both for your help,
I have 3 Dynamic DNS VPN client VPN's tunnels no issues.
