Rules for Bridging



  • Hi @ll !

    I've setup an ALIX (alix2d13) with pfSense (2.0.1).

    The intial configuration was as follows:
    WAN (dhcp), LAN (static) and OPT1 (static)

    I want bridge the LAN and OPT1 together and for this I've renamed the intefaces as follows:

    • LAN -> LAN1
    • OPT1 -> LAN2
    • Created a bridge (LAN) having LAN1 and LAN2 as members.

    Now we have the following interfaces:
    WAN (dhcp), LAN (static), LAN1 (none), LAN2 (none)

    I've setup a DHCP Server on the LAN interface and LAN1 and LAN2 will get the IP from there.

    Currently I have created the following default rules:

    • LAN (allow "LAN net" to any)
    • LAN1 (allow "LAN1 net" to any)
    • LAN2 (allow "LAN2 net" to any)

    I can't figure out which rules I have to add for the bridge to completely work. Means I will need to add a rule for DHCP?

    Does someone already have a similar setup and can show me a printscreen of the rules?  ???

    Would be great  ::)

  • I greatly suggest to use switches instead of bridging, but if you insist to use bridging you might want to take a look of your own post:

      **- LAN1 (allow "LAN1 net" to any)
    • LAN2 (allow "LAN2 net" to any)**

    I use switches so i don't have similar setup anywhere. But i could imagine, that if you use bridging then there is only one subnet between interfaces
