Have Seperate Networks on OPT and LAN ports of router



  • I'm currently using the http://store.netgate.com/Netgate-m1n1wall-2D3-2D13-Red-P218.aspx router/firewall.

    I have the LAN connected through a switch to Ethernet Port 1 on my main computer.

    I have the OPT connected through a switch to Ethernet Port 2 on my main computer.

    I also have a server that is connected on the OPT switch.

    I'm getting internet on my LAN connection, but not on the OPT connection.

    Is there something I'm missing in the WebGUI options to enable OPT to have a WAN connection as well?



  • Are you using pfsense or monowall?  ???

    main computer means pfsense or other server/workstation?



  • Sorry I'm using pfsense on my router/firewall.

    The Main Computer is just a regular desktop computer with two NICS.

    The server has one NIC.



  • @mrhags:

    The Main Computer is just a regular desktop computer with two NICS.

    You have to choose what interface you want to set default gateway, both will be a mess.

    Also, check opt rules to allow internet access.



  • Go to Firewall: NAT -> Outbound NAT.

    Switch to Manual outbound NAT.  Then duplicate the rule called auto created rule for LAN.  Edit the duplicated rule so that the source subnet is your OPT1 subnet.



  • Alright I have setup the NAT rules but I'm still not getting internet on the OPT port.

    Here is what I have:



  • Go to Firewall-> Rules -> OPT1 tab

    Add a rule to:

    Allow
    Any Protocol
    Source subnet: OPT1 subnet
    Destination: Any
