Primary NAT/DHCP'd IP



  • Hi all,

    I have 9 IP's on my home ADSL link (connected via PPPoE), I currently NAT my internal network and assign 1:1 NAT rules for the extra 8 IP's then farm them off to my hosts.
    Thing I am wondering is, any device that connects on my network, lets say via DHCP, is automatically NAT'd through the default IP…
    Is there a way I can change what the default IP is (that gets NAT'd out) to one of the other 8 IP's associated to me?

    Reason is this:
    My ISP is throttling my primary IP, but, other IP's are not being throttled... ever!
    So, I wish to basically, never use the primary IP if possible.

    Help would be very appreciated.

    Aaron.

    You can NAT to every (Virtual-) IP assigned to pfsense.
    Go to Firewall ->  Nat; Tab: Outbound

    Some hints:
    -> Assign virtual IPs if you need to
    -> I had some trouble (not applied NAT-rules) solved after rebooting pfsense.
    -> Have a look at: http://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/Outbound_NAT
