External ips and internal ips



  • HI, im using pf sense for some time now and it works GREAT!
    Till now i had 1 static IP…
    Now i got 2 additional static IPS...and now the things get interesting :)
    I have set virtual IPS and changed outbound rules.....
    my local server have local IP addres...
    Ping/wget workgs ok....
    When i wget some page that resolves my IP i see my external IP is (one of the two new IPS)
    BUT
    I want to install DirectAdmin and have some problems...
    Seems like my external IP is still the 1 old one....
    Can anyone help me?



  • make us picture where you show your topology with internal addresses, don't show full public ip's
    some screenshots from rules will help also



  • Have attached the diagram… it simple :)
    OK...
    the external IP i have for some time...
    Server A is working for a good year now... PERFECT!!
    NOW i have additional 2 external IPs and i want to setup a webserver, becouse i want to have my websites on it
    What i want to do?
    on Server B i want to install directadmin (cpanel) for hosting....
    The thing is i don't know how to make the configuration to work :)
    i have:

    • setup virtual ips
    • set NAT rulles
    • set port forwarding rulles










  • I prefer carp or virtual ip's

    but your picture also showed, that you have dmz on new server. do you want to have dmz or is that intended ip to use from wan side?

    1. Create virtual ip's
    2. Create manual outbound nat rules
    • from your new server ip to anywhere with intended outside ip-address
    • do this same with any ip you want
    • last rule is the default any, so this is the ip what any else clients is using
    1. Create portforwards
    2. Test from outside network if you're able to do it
