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

    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  amd64


    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
    Embedded NC107i PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Server Adapter

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

    Netgear ProSafe GS108E, 8 Port Gigabit Switch

    Have 3 PC, all FreeBSD, and VoIP Phone.

    Default is now Gateway ADSL Modem IP Address

    pfSense LAN WebGUI is
    pfSense WAN is

    PCs IP Address are

    PC2, Switch Port 2
    PC3, Switch Port 3
    PC4, Switch Port 4 reserve
    VoIP Phone, Switch Port 8

    Naturally can set DHCP Server on LAN

    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


    Now is there
    ifconfig_re0="inet netmask"

    Thanks in Advance

  • No just change subnet on lan to something like

  • I can't change mine LAN Subnet from many Configurations and Scripts have this

    But should I change WAN Subnet to, perhaps?

  • Yes do that

  • Thanks Perry

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

    No PPPoE, no DHCP, all statically.

    Have in


    ifconfig_msk0="inet netmask"



    ADSL Modem
