Complete failure to forward ports 745+746 - part 1



  • Hi
    I've completely failed to set up what I thought would be a really simple system

    Basically a dedicated private link to the WAN port which should only accept ports 745 + 746. Everything else is denied.
    Port 745 forwards to OPT1 (192.168.200.1) and 746 to OPT2 (192.168.201.1). The LAN port is used for config only.
    The idea is that the two OPT ports connect to individual PC's (192.168.200.2 & 192.168.201.1) on each of which runs a SFTP server. One is a backup for the other and no other machines are on these networks.

    Fundamental problem I have is that no matter what I do, according to the logs, the incoming traffic is being denied by the 'default deny rule'.
    Currently only the WAN and OPT2 ports are configured. Here's what I have done- cut back to the basics (which don't work).

    WAN  - Configured to only pass ports 745 + 746
    OPT2 - Configured to pass anything
    NAT  - Configured to move ports 0 - 5000 to OPT2 port 746  sftp serbvers address

    Connected to the WAN is a notebook (no firewall) running Filezilla which I use to test the connection. It says 'Connection timed out'.
    PFsense logs show 'default deny rule' with every combination of rules etc I try.

    Can anyone help me out with this?
    Pics attached of the configs.

    regards
