Port Forwarding set to Follow the Computer

  • Is it possible to setup a port forwarding rule to follow a computer?

    I have a laptop and 50% of the time I am running on wifi.  The other 50% I'm plugged in via ethernet.  I play D&D on Sunday nights and host from my machine.  To do this I have to forward port 1802 to my computer.  I was wondering if I could setup pfsense to forward that port to my machine regardless of which way I'm conection?

    This is purely academic as I always run while on ethernet while playing but it would just be good to know.

    Please don't spend a lot of time on this.


  • You can assign the same IP to multiple MACs (with different hostnames). As long as you don't have them both enabled at the same time, that will work fine.
