Natting problem with Pfsense and cisco1841 router
We have following configuration:
cisco router 1841 ip: xxx.xxx.xxx.17/28 (public ip)
pfSense with snort, squid, squidgaurd:
wan ip: xxx.xxx.xxx.18/28 (public ip)
lan ip: xxx.16.1.2/16 (private ip)
with vlan xxx.17.1.0/16, xxx.18.1.0/16, xxx.19.1.0/16
static route has been added like
Hosp network:xxx.17.0.0/16 gateway xxx.16.1.1 for all vlans.
Allied Telesis L3 switch with vlan mapping to xxx.16.1.1
network of 3 vlans and 1 lan.
Now i want to connect web server which is in lan (ip: xxx.16.1.5/16) from the internet.
I tried with different ways like, 1:1, port forward, static routes but without success.
I tested it from outside of my network. But no success.
Read cisco setup also. Cisco router tech says that, i has to make setting in PFsense for accessing the webserver in private network as no natting is done in router.
Please help me in connecting web server from the internet.
I added this
WAN TCP 80 (HTTP) xxx.16.1.5 (ext.: xxx.xxx.xxx.18)# 80 (HTTP)
#wan interface address
2. Fire wall rule (auto added)
TCP * * 172.16.1.5 80 (HTTP) *
but no success!!

Your config looks fine, so it's probably one of numbers 2 through 7 under Common Problems. My first guess is 7.
Thank you cmb,
I read the document and tried your guess also. I solved the problem in two steps.
1. First i tested with the Interface address and disabled the firewall in client.
2. Then i tried with the virtual ip for additional public ip. No success.
Then i unchecked FTP helper in wan interface and it worked.
Actually i am trying this for last 1 week without success. But your 2 hints solved the problem within 10 minutes.
Thank you once again.
