Network Share Across 2 ip ranges
Is it possible to share a file on a file server on ip range a across a network on range b using pfsense.
Range a is currently 10.1.0.0
Range b is currently 10.2.0.0
The subnets are both 255.255.255.0
Both range a & b are on there own interfaces.
The only difference between range a & b is the b has a proxy server filtering requests.
Any help is greatly appreciate.
If there is no nat between a and b, just create a rule to allow access from a to b.
Aldo check if host in both networks know how to reach a and b.
How would this affect the proxy then?
Would it mean then that the pfsense firewall on a @10.1.0.1 and on b @10.2.0.1 would be reachable so users on subnet b can bypass the proxy?
If your file server is not a http server, proxy server will not help.
Good to know.
I am currently setting up NAT. What protocol would i need to allow for the mapping to be successful?
What protocol do computers use to find and map shared directories on the network?
Map sharing? Is it windows sharing?
If your share is from M$, the best way is routing instead of nat.
Its a samba file server.
All the machines on the network i am trying to share the file with are linux machines.
I hope that made sense
Samba works the same way as m$.
135-139 udp and tcp
Ok so you recon i then nat the fileserver onto the 2nd network or would routing be more effective?
It's up to you. Both will work for only one file server
Thanks. I will give NAT a go and let you know if i get it working.
