Use pfSense as a router local



  • Hello

    This may be a simpel question, and thereby a easy solution, but for somehow I can't get it to work prober.

    I have a pfSense router on my network.
    Lan interface is 10.101.200.3/16

    The WAN interface ain't in use.

    The OPT1 interface is 10.112.200.1/16

    My problem is, what on the LAN interface I got a default router, with an IP: 10.101.200.2/16
    How can I set this in the pfsense?

    My next problem is, what I will allow all traffic from LAN to OPT1 and from OPT1 to LAN.

    I have tried to disable firewall (no go), and tried to create a firewall rule on the LAN site, where allowing all on any source, and protocol and to any interface.
    The same have I tried to do on the OPT1 interface.

    At the moment I have created 4 static routes to allow trafic from the OPT1 interface to the LAN interface, because there is something there are blocking my network traffic.

    How does I setup the pfsense unit correct to allow all trafic both ways, without any problems?
    Any good ideas?

    Best Regards

  • I don't see an answer to your question, the problem may be clarity. I'm not exactly sure what you're trying to achieve.

    To allow traffic to pass from LAN to OPT1 and OPT1 > LAN, you need to add 2 rules. Make sure your NAT: Outbound is set to automatic.

    [LAN]
            Protocol  |  Source | Port | Destination | Port | Gateway | queue
    PASS * LAN net * OPT1 net * * none

    [OPT1]
            Protocol  |  Source | Port | Destination | Port | Gateway | queue
    PASS * OPT1 net * LAN net * * none

    Are you asking how to set the "default router" with a static IP with the DHCP Service in pfsense? I just re-read this and understood the fact you have a router on the LAN interface after your pfsense, be sure to turn it into a dumb switch and disable any NAT/Firewall features on this. Also check your pfsense logs to see if there are even any attempts from lan>opt1 coming through.
