Routing Issue



  • Hi,

    I have the following setup on pfsense, and I cannto seem to get routing working.

    {Internet} ,<–> {pfsense} <--> [4 Public IP Class C Address, i.e. 256 IPs x 4]

    For arguments sake lets assume my Public IP set is as follows:

    66.201.10.0/24  (pfsense is configured on 66.201.10.2)
    202.55.10.0/24
    201.202.10.0/24
    53.40.10.0/24

    Exactly what do I need to do to enable routing of other subnets out to the Internet and also traffic from the Internet. This particular pfsense installation is used to firewall some web servers.

    I understand VLAN routing needs to be turned on, but I'm totally lost on how to do this.

    1. Out to the internet: make the IP address of the appropriate pfSense interface the default gateway.
    2. from the internet: depends a bit on the configuration.

    There is no VLAN routing as such to be enabled or disabled. VLAN interfaces are treated just like physical interfaces as far as routing is concerned, though there can be some very specific cases where they need special treatment. Where do VLANs come into the configuration?

    Do you have multiple interfaces to the Internet?

    "Some web servers": what is the relationship between the web servers and the four public IP subnets?

    Do you have the pfSense book ("The Definitive Guide")? A configuration that might resemble what you are trying to do can be found discussed in section 6.7 Methods of Using Additional Public IPs
