Allow mac address access internet



  • Hey, I'm new user now i want to allow lan access to internet by mac address not fix static ip? how can access internet after install pfsese already?



  • Pretty much the same way you add static ip address'. the only difference is that you leave the IP field blank. When the NIC is found on the network pfSense will auto assign it an address from your ip pool. Your LAN should have a Default Pass Rule configured should look like this [ * , LAN NET, *, *, * ] which equates to [ any | LAN Subnet | any | any | any ]



  • Shadowadepts is talking about the config page of the DHCP.
    At the bottom of this page you can configure MAC addresses to get a specific IP.
    On the same page you can enable static ARP.
    Static ARP will only allow devices which are in the list below to communicate
    with the pfSense.

    Or you could go to "Services|DHCP server", as clearly pointed out by GruensFroeschli ("config page of the DHCP"), and have a look. You should have one tab for each interface apart from WAN.
