I'm new to pfsense, just set a test box up.
I am currently running endian firewall in a live environment with a block of ip addresses, however the rdns is coming back as the firewall ip. ie 220.127.116.11 is the firewall, 18.104.22.168 is a server, when doing a rdns lookup on 22.214.171.124 it resolves as 126.96.36.199
The question i want to ask re pfsense is can i forward an ip to an internal device with its own rdns entry?
Also i will be installing pfsense on a watchguard firebox…. :)
Sounds like you might possibly be confusing something. The firewall doesn't have anything to do with the reverse DNS of the traffic, however, what you are seeing is more like your IPs are getting NAT applied. Go to Firewall > NAT on the Outbound tab, switch to manual, and delete any rules that mention your public IPs.
:-[ ok i feel like an idiot now…...
its working, cough ::)
Time to start on the firebox
