Public Subnet in LAN - not working.



  • Hi all, I hope someone can help, I have trawled the interweb and bought the pf bible but I am having no luck whatsoever using public IP's on the LAN.

    Current setup.

    Gateway Router .129
    WAN of pfsense .130
    LAN of pfsense  .132

    LAN DHCP Range .133 - .139

    In each instance, including the wiki, it says all you have to do is disable Auto NAT, go Manual and delete the auto rules…

    Now I know that's way too simple but yet I am lost, can anyone advise?

    Regards,

    Dvnt.

    Can you get more info here?
    XXX.XXX.129.x?
    Or??
    Is there a reason to use public IP? Are you trying to fit pfSense into an existing network setup?
    Is this where your are going? "http://pfsense.trendchiller.com/transparent_firewall.pdf"Transparent Bridging?



  • I just posted something similar, a guide for 2.0-RC1. That guide is for 1.2.3

    Go back to the Firewall category and look for the guide just posted today



  • Hi and thanks! I believe I have managed to get it working, although I went back to scratch and used the LAN interface instead of OPT1 is there a know issues with using OPT interfaces?

    Currently I am testing on PF 1.2.3 but shortly moving onto 2.0-RC2.

    Also note that in the link you posted it says to leave LAN IP blank or "none" I had to assign an IP from my subnet to the LAN which isnt ideal but it worked AOK, what did you mean by "none"?

    I have also used transparent bridging and is my current method but I would like to use the DHCP server to assign my public IP's.

    Another issue I have with the bridging method is posted here http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php/topic,37803.0.html if you could have a look and comment on my set up that would be great :)

    My IDEAL set up would be…

    GW ROUTER = xxx.xxx.89.129
    WAN = xxx.xxx.89.130

    VLAN3 = Management VLAN for wireless AP's (all in layer2 bridge mode) that all clients connect through 192.168.1.0/24
    VLAN100 = Local IP subnet/DHCP 10.0.100.0/24
    VLAN200 = Public IP subnet/DHCP xxx.xxx.89.140/27



  • LAN and WAN cannot be the same subnet. Check the section of the book that describes means of using additional public IPs, it describes the options in detail.
