Reversed port forward



  • I have a PPPoe modem in bridge mode, pfSense connected to it and LAN network. Apart from port forwarding a port from WAN to a private computer in the lan, is it possible to forward a port from the modem to the PFSense IP ?
    Modem: 192.168.2.1,  PFSense WAN as PPPoE,  PFSense's LAN 10.0.209.1 …
    The modem has a diagnostic page and I would like to get to it from the LAN ...
    Is it possible??

    Best regards!!

  • Not easily. You have to do some "hacking" to get that working. Databeestje pointed out a solution to me that I don't have handy right now but it involved installing "redir" from the portscollection and some manually configuration at shell level. I'll post the solution when I rediscover where I took some notes on this or maybe databeestje can answer it again.



  • That would be great if you found that solution for me.
    Of course changing the internal modem IP to be the same network range as the LAN, eg 10.0.209.2 is not a problem…

    Best regards!!
