Transparent firewall - routing issues

  • I have tried configuring pfSense as a transparent firewall however it is not working as a layer 2 device.  In order for get out to the Internet, one must enter in the IP address of the pfSense box and not the routers IP.  I have two network cards bridged and have created a rule to allow LAN traffic out to the Internet, turned off outbound NAT'ing.  Not sure what else I am missing.

    Its version 1.2.3.

    How do you have WAN/LAN setup exactly? (screenshots may help)

    In a transparent scenario, WAN should have an IP in the subnet you want. LAN should not have an IP in that subnet, and it should be set as a bridge to WAN.
