Link between interfaces

  • Hi !

    Just setting up my first pfSense firewall & I need some advice.

    pfSense has 3 interfaces in a standard configuration - Wan, Lan and Opt1 linked to an external wireless router.  My network printer is on the Lan with a fixed IP
    For privacy and security there is no access from the Opt1 interface to the Lan.  This of course makes it impossible to print when connected to the wireless point.

    I would like to create a link between the Opt1 interface to the Lan - IP of the printer only.  Is this possible & how do I set it up?

  • Yes this is possible.
    Create an allow rule with as source the OPT subnet and as destination the printer IP.
