Is it provider or me?



  • Running pfSEnse 1.2-RELEASE

    WAN: aaa.bbb.ccc.62 (block aaa.bbb.ccc.60/30)
    LAN: 192.168.0.10 (block 192.168.0.0/24)
    OPT1: xxx.yyy.zzz.81 (block xxx.yyy.zzz.80/28, routeble IP block)

    Mail server is connected to OPT1 and has IP xxx.yyy.zzz.85

    For some reason other e-mail servers report the IP of my mail server as aaa.bbb.ccc.62, that is as the IP assigned to WAN. Is it my problem with setting up pfSense box, and what should I do if so?



  • Use manual outbound NAT. Remove the rule that is translating traffic from OPT1 to the internet. Your ISP will have to be pointing to your WAN address with a route for xxx.yyy.zzz.0/28.

    Thank you. Initially I used http://doc.m0n0.ch/handbook/nat-outbound.html to set up pfSense. Looks like it was some crazy NAT setting upstream. They never told me what happened but all of a sudden the problem was gone.
