Proxmox KVM and Pfsense Configuration



  • I set up a Proxmox server with two NICs configured as two bridges:

    network interface settings

    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback

    iface eth0 inet manual

    iface eth1 inet manual

    auto vmbr0
    iface vmbr0 inet static
    address  192.1.1.10
    netmask  255.255.255.0
    gateway  192.1.1.254
    bridge_ports eth0
    bridge_stp off
    bridge_fd 0

    auto vmbr1
    iface vmbr1 inet manual
    bridge_ports eth1
    bridge_stp off
    bridge_fd 0

    I then installed pfsense on Proxmox with two bridges activated. I tried to configure LAN and WAN. I could connect to the web console at the first time (well, I didn't know how I did) but later on I couldn't even open the logon page.  Please tell me how to configure LAN and WAN to make it work. By the way, I read the book pfSense: The Definitive Guide and couldn't find the foundamental use cases of LAN and WAN. What is the best way to define LAN and WAN in terms of pfsense. Thanks.



  • after the initial install

    using a web browser on the local network  connect to pfsense to finish the install.
    the default i/p is 192.168.1.1  ,  login  : admin,  password : pfsense.

    also  from the proxmox gui, open a vnc console to check the local i/p address, enable ssh etc..
