Add interface to pfSense



  • Is it possible to add an interface to pfSense where pfSense is not "responsible" for it?

    I have installed the AICCU package to get my SixXs IPv6 tunnel working.
    It does actually work, and I do get a tun0 interface in freebsd. How do I tell pfSense now that it has a new interface to manage?
    I can't add it on the Interface -> Assign page, it does not show up.

    Using 2.1 Snapshot August 4th.

    UPDATE: The problem is that there is no "+" on the Interface "Assign" page.

    Click the "+" at the bottom right of that page.

    Thanks for your reply. I may have not described my problem accurately.
    The problem actually is that there is no "+" on that page ;)

    Thanks



  • Sorry, it looks as if tun interfaces are used by OpenVPN in pfSense so it is probably difficult to use them for other purposes.



  • I can actually name it what I want. I tried em3, but does not seem to work unfortunately.



  • OK, AICCU did not give the interface another name than tun0.
    I have patched away "tun" in $vfaces = array (   from /etc/inc/util.inc in the "get_interface_list" function, and it does now recognize the interface and I can use it in pfsense for rules and stuff :)

    Maybe that helps others ;)

    Thanks
