LAN Ip direct connection to the internet
newbie here in pf sense. what is the firewall rule to create when you want to make a LAN computer( say 192.168.1.4) connect directly to the internet bypassing the Pf Sense firewall? i am having a very slow ftp download issue which i think will be solved by creating that rule but as a newbie would like to request any comments from all the pf sense gurus and users here. any help will be much appreciated. thanks
edit: disabled the userland FTP-Proxy application on both interface but still very slow ftp transfer. i have a 3Mbps download/512kbps upload connection. Http download is fast. The only problem is when i download via ftp it is very slow. There is no installed squid package. ideas anyone? :-\

You can't "bypass" the firewall, it wouldn't be much of a firewall if you could.
Have you confirmed that the pfSense host is the cause of the problem - if you directly connect your PC to your ISP do you get full speed FTP downloads from the same sites?
and how says its not the ftp server limiting download? What ftp server are you hitting? What speeds are you seeing?
sorry for the very late reply of my first post. the download issue just went away when i installed pfsense to a new hardware.also upgraded it from 1.2.3 to the latest version and its working now. haven't rebooted it since last month. ;D.
