FW Rule Wireless to WAN?



  • Hi All,

    I try to create a rule that allows Wireless Traffic to WAN (Internet), but somehow I must have gotten something wrong.

    Configuration:
    re0 = WAN, re1 = LAN, re2 = VoIP, re3 = Wireless

    When I set up the rule as per attached screenshot [ pfSense FW Rules Wireless 01 07212011 SH ] traffic is flowing
    When I set up the rule as per attached screenshot [ pfSense FW Rules Wireless 02 07212011 SH ] traffic is not flowing

    The difference is in 1st rule I use "any" for destination, and for 2nd rule I use "WAN Net" for destination.

    How come?

    Thanks - Steen

  • Any is Any –> The internet.
    WAN-net is the subnet immediately in front of the WAN.

    Hi GF,
    Thanks for the feedback!
    I think I get it, just I did not like the "any" and I assume WAN net was the Internet.  :-[
    In summary the 1st rule in my case is correct where I want to have ful access to the Internet from a Wireless point somewhere in my Home Office - right?
