How to capture port from different subnet
good day pf masters
i have this setup
Multiwan –-- > Squid ------ > Hub --- > workstations
on my work station i use utorrent on port (9999 example only)
on the squid machine i can put firewall rule with the torrents port "9999" as destination address
but my problem is
how can i create a firewall rule on my "Multiwan" with the torrent port "9999"
upon diagnostic > states
on my squid box i can see the torrent port
but on the Multiwan's States, i cannot see the torrents port.
You mean inbound traffic for 9999? If so, just create a port forward rule to your server(firewall -> nat).
Thanks for the suggestion buy how can i achieve that?
Is this correct?
On my squid box ill forward the port 9999 to my multiwan box?
After that i will be able to see the port 9999 on my multiwan when i run torrent on my squid box?
You want to use torrent on squid?
All you need is just include port 9999 as a safe port?
If so, this option is on squid gui.
No sir want i want to do is do torrent on box b which is squid box and that port must be visible from box a which is multiwan
Inorder to be clearer let set aside the word squid
Sample i have 2 pf boxes named as box a and b
Box a is multiwan while nox b is simple pfsense
When i run a port capture on box b let say torrent or game using port 9999 i saw this port on diagnostic>states of box b, while on box a diagnostic>state i cant find the 9999.
What i want to accomplish is to see the 9999 (just a sample port) from my box a in able to set a rule which gateway it will go (wan or opt)
You do not need squid for this setup.
create a firewall rule on lan forwarding torrent client ip traffic to multiwan pfsense or change the gateway of this server/worksration to multiwan pfsense.
Squid is a http proxy.
sorry for the confusion
lets remove the proxy in this scenario, i only say proxy because this is my currebt setup
lets change the proxy box to a simple pfsense box
ill try what you suggest
my goal is
there is no specific machine that run torrrent
what i need is to capture the port their using in my example is 9999
i see this port on my box b but not on multi wan box
changing the gateway to my multiwan box is not an option for me because i have packages running on my box b, all will go through box b and yet needed to monitor the port their using through multiwan box
