Route from WAN to LAN



  • Hi there

    I want to be able to route between my lan and wan addresses i can reach computers on the wan side but only ping the lan ip at the pfsense box.

    172.17.28.xx–-172.17.28.17[pfsense]10.30.30.2–-10.30.30.1[router]80.80.80.81–-80.80.80.82[router]10.50.50.1–-10.50.50.xx

    From a computer at 10.50.50.xx i can ping 172.17.28.17 but not anything else on that network can it be done with pfsense or???

    Regards Jesper



  • It's all a question of firewallrules and nat. If you only want to route you have to shutdown nat first (firewall>nat, outbound tab; enable advanced outbound nat and delete the autocreated rule at the bottom; save and apply). If your WAN lies within a private subnetrange you have to disable "block private subnets" at interfaces>wan. Additional to this you have to setup firewallrules to permit desired trafic (firewall>rules). Also make sure all clients have routes to the other subnet though the pfSense as gateway.
