Use Virtual IP for outbound not work
i have the following setup
OPT1 188.8.131.52 default GW
Virtual IP 184.108.40.206
server on LAN 192.168.2.199
Ihave the following port forwarding rule which is working.
VIP 220.127.116.11 port 25 192.168.2.199
VIP 18.104.22.168 port 3389 192.168.2.199
I want the server 192.168.2.199 going out using the VIP 22.214.171.124 on the WAN interface.
I created an Manual Outbound rule but it's not working. the server always use the default GW 126.96.36.199 when going out
i use www.whatismyip.org the check the ip.
source port *
dest port *
NAT add 188.8.131.52
NAT port *
Static port No
Thanks for the help!
Are you trying to change what IP it goes out on, or what WAN it goes out on? IP translation is outbound NAT, which WAN it goes out of is from firewall rules.
i am trying to change what WAN it goes out. i want it goes out on one of my Virtual IP.
I checked the following case which is similar to what I have. I thought it’s on Outbound NAT
So, if which WAN it goes out of is from firwall rules, why can i specify the WAN IP i want to go out?
outbound NAT determines what IP something uses when it leaves a particular interface. Firewall rules determine which interface something leaves. Details in http://pfsense.org/book
Thanks for the information. I got the book already. I am setting up a few pfsense with embedded and hardware installation and try to migrate some sonicwall and cisco firewall. Some of the behavior on the pfsense doesn’t work the way it should. I may need to spend more time to see what’s wrong. Regarding on the pfsense book, do you know if any book base on ver 2.0 pfsense will come out soon? Thanks.
