Help with Port Forwarding



  • Hi,

    I was wondering if anyone on here can shed some light on my issues.

    I have PFsense 2.0 running on Alix board and would like to port forward HTTP request to a content filtering server.

    My PFsense 2 Lan and Content filtering server are on the same subnet.

    I have configured a simple nat rule:

    Interface: LAN
    Protocol: TCP
    Source: Any
    Source Port: Any
    Destination: Any
    Destination Port: 80
    Redirect Target IP: 192.168.1.2 (Content Filter server)
    Redirect Target Port: 8000

    But, I am having problem getting this to work.

    I set the gateway on the workstation to that of PFsense LAN.

    I would appreciate any assistance.



  • Well I solved the issue.

    For anyone experiencing the same problem, make sure you create a NAT outbound rule  ;)



  • Pro Tip: If you create a NAT entry first a firewall entry will be created automatically for you by default.
    The pfsense GUI has a small learning curve. Most firewall distros don't have a separate NAT entry GUI than the firewall GUI.

    This only works for port forward NAT rules. With 1:1 NAT you still have to create the rules.
