Implementing multi VLAN on pfsense



  • Not sure the best way to do this…

    I have a pfsense superMicro box that is running pfSense. I also have several devices that I would like to divide up into different VLANs. For example:

    VLAN1

    • xBox

    • appleTV

    • TV

    VLAN2

    • NAS

    VLAN3

    • Wireless AP

    What is the best way to go about this? Multi-NIC card? small home router? etc?



  • when working with vlan's you'd only need 1 NIC for all vlan's …. but then you would need a layer2 switch behind the pfsense

    on the pfsense you can create as many vlan interfaces as you need

    Great, that is what I was hoping I could do. I planned on setting up about 5 VLANs on one NIC on the pfSense box and attaching a managed switch to handle the traffic.

    Until now i create two vlans

    rl1------------3---------UFFICIO

    where rl1 in the lan interface (rl0 is wan interface)
