Help needed installing pfSense on ProxMox server
cletus8 last edited by
I have finally decided to install ProxMox on my box. By now, i just want to have pfSense and CentOS virtualized on the box.
pfSense will be running as firewall obviously, plus DHCP / NAT (it will act as a router).
CentOS will be running apache, bittorrent, and some extra applications.
I want pfsense to be directly connected to the internet (one of the NICs, eth0, will be connected to the modem). And Centos to have a private IP address leased by the pfsense's DHCP server.
Also, i want the eth1 to be the internal network NIC. it will be connected to a switch and the hosts connected to that switch will get their IP addresses through DHCP (pfsense server).
I made a little schema of what i want to accomplish. I hope its understandable:
The problem is that i have NO idea of how to configure proxmox.
Could you help me? :D

i have 100% your shema (and more ;-) here running. You must configure the two bridges in proxmox. One for the DMZ and one for the internal network.
Here is an example from my /etc/network/interfaces
## this is for the internal network auto vmbr0 iface vmbr0 inet static address 192.168.1.3 netmask 255.255.255.0 gateway 192.168.1.1 bridge_ports eth0 bridge_stp on bridge_fd 0 ## this is for the DMZ - Pfsense auto vmbr10 iface vmbr10 inet manual bridge_ports eth1 bridge_stp off bridge_fd 0
Now create the cenos and assign one network interface to vmbr0
Create the pfsense machine an assign to network interface to it. One to vmbr0 and the dmz/modem to the vmbr10
