Setting up static ip on pfsense
Hi im trying to use my pfsense firewall as a dedicated firewall,And NAT.
My ISP provided me with 5 static ip how can i set it up, also i want the server to obtain a static ip from the dhcp server.
Im going to be using the the servers for webhosting (virtualization to be exact) can anyone help me out.
Thanks in advance.
Have you checked the Docs ?
I checked it, i know about the NAT tutorial, but i don't know how to set up the static ip to give my servers internet access.
I need someone to explain to me.
Wan,Lan do i need to make any firewall rules to allow internet traffic?
Sorry for my beginner questions, but im a fast learner i just need this push to start learning and experimenting more.
WAN will use one static and then you will use virtual IPs to assign the rest. Yes, you will have to use NAT and firewall rules to allow traffic and forward them on to certain IPs behind the firewall. I would reference the docs already posted.
I have an ADSL Provider in my area, and they provided me with a router, with 5 useable IP addresses. I swapped it out for a Zyxel router really nice. I used the first IP for that device… And then with my pfsense i used the secondary IP in the range and my gateway was the Zyxel Router (first IP). Then added the rest using Alias in pfsense. The reason for this, is so that i can still access the Zyxel interface if i need. And plus if i was ever outside the network i could ping the Zyxel to make sure the internet was up without compromising the network, and Pfsense.
