Routing Issue, Need Help



  • Ok what I am trying to do is setup pfsense as a router with no nat. Just a basic router.

    1.) First I went to the advanced tab and checked the: Disable the firewalls filter altogether.
    2.) I went to the static routes tab and checked the check box allow for fast routing.
    3.) I added a static route to a 2nd pfsense box that would route traffic from a 10.1.1.0/24 network to a 192.168.0.0/24 network. For this static route, I set default gateway to 10.1.1.248 on WAN interface of the pfsense box that I plan to use as a basic router.

    I have setup the first pfsense box with 192.168.0.1/24 on it's LAN interface and 10.1.1.248/24 on it's WAN interface. This is the box I plan to use as a basic router.

    On the 2nd pfsense box I added the static route. this box has a LAN subnet of 10.1.1.0/24.

    Now here's my problem that I can't seem to get figured out. From a computer on the 10.1.1.0/24 network I can ping a computer on the 192.168.0.0/24 network. But, on a computer from the 192.168.0.0/24 network I can not ping any computers on the 10.1.1.0/24 network.

    Rules should not apply so can anyone help with a mistake I may be overlooking. Again down below is a basic layout of how the network flows.

    Computer on 10.1.1.24/24 –> PFsense Box LAN 10.1.1.1/24 with static route to -->> PFsense Router WAN 10.1.1.248/24 -->> PFsense Router LAN 192.168.0.1/24 -->> Computer on 192.168.0.100/24
