Opening up Ports

  • Hello,
    We have a Software partner asking us to open up some ports so they can do a software upgrade.  We trust these people so that's not an issue - but I don't know how to open up ports…at home on my own stuff its just a few clicks here a few clicks there and you're good to go - but I can't find any info on pfSense how to do it...

    He will need the following ports opened:

    TCP 22

    TCP 80

    TCP 443

    TCP 995


  • First create port alias for all of those ports(Firewall:Aliases)
    Second create portforward to one pc with that alias. (Firewall:NAT:PortForward) dont define source ports

    EDIT: Determine source network

  • Port forwarding is covered in the documentation.
