Is VLAN needed for pfSense



  • I am new to pfSense and noob, use since last Years FreeBSD.

    I'm confused with Configuration for VLAN and pfSense, have googled since weeks, but no found for single WAN and single LAN Configuation, multi WAN, multi LAN is described

    http://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/Main_Page

    Have all read, but…

    Installed newest pfSense

    8.1-RELEASE-p6 FreeBSD 8.1-RELEASE-p6 #0: Mon Dec 12 18:15:35 EST 2011    root@FreeBSD_8.0_pfSense_2.0-AMD64.snaps.pfsense.org:/usr/obj./usr/pfSensesrc/src/sys/pfSense_SMP.8  amd64

    Hardware:

    ADSL Modem
    Motorola Netopia 3347NWG, with 4 Ports

    HP ProLiant N40L, Turion II Neo N40L, 1x 250GB, Micro-Tower, for pfSense

    Ethernet Card, bge Driver, WAN

    Intel EXPI9301CTBLK, 1000CT Gigabit Adapter PCIe, em Driver, LAN

    Netgear ProSafe GS108E, 8 Port Gigabit Switch

    http://www.netgear.de/products/business/switches/prosafe-plus-switches/GS108E.aspx

    Have 3 PC, all FreeBSD, and VoIP Phone.

    Default is now Gateway ADSL Modem IP Address 192.168.1.110

    pfSense LAN WebGUI is 192.168.1.101
    pfSense WAN is 192.168.1.100

    PCs IP Address are

    PC2 192.168.1.2, Switch Port 2
    PC3 192.168.1.3, Switch Port 3
    PC4 192.168.1.4, Switch Port 4
    192.168.1.5-192.168.1.7 reserve
    VoIP Phone 192.168.1.8, Switch Port 8

    Naturally can set DHCP Server on LAN 192.168.1.2-192.168.1.99

    Wish only working pfSense with one WAN, one LAN, one Lan Net.
    Do I need to separte LAN and DMZ? All mine PC are on LAN, and this is DMZ I think.

    Which WAN Type should I use PPPoE (ADSL Modem) or something others?

    Do I need VLAN and which Configuration for WAN, LAN eventually VLAN is working here?

    What must I use for working Internet for mine FreeBSD PCs in

    /etc/rc.conf

    Now is there
    ifconfig_re0="inet 192.168.1.2 netmask 255.255.255.0"
    defaultrouter="192.168.1.110"

    Thanks in Advance



  • No just change subnet on lan to something like 192.168.2.0/24



  • I can't change mine LAN Subnet from 192.168.1.0/24 many Configurations and Scripts have this 192.168.1.2-8.

    But should I change WAN Subnet to 192.168.2.0/24, perhaps?



  • Yes do that



  • Thanks Perry

    Have switched better all mine PC and VoIP to LAN Subnet 192.168.2.0/2 and use LAN Gateway 192.168.2.101 from HP pfSense.
    Works excellently. Now must I more learn about pfSense.

    No PPPoE, no DHCP, all statically.

    Have in

    /etc/rc.conf

    ifconfig_msk0="inet 192.168.2.3 netmask 255.255.255.0"

    pfSense

    defaultrouter="192.168.2.101"

    ADSL Modem

    #defaultrouter="192.168.1.110"
