PFSense 2.01 NAT issues
Need a hint with NAT, I am testing my new 2.01 installation and here NAT rules too. I have created NAT
2 rules for testing, one for VNC and one for FTP but they do not work.
The rule is as follows (example) :
IF Proto Src.Addr. Src.Ports Dest.Adress Dest.Ports NAT IP NAT Ports
WAN TCP Any 5900 (VNC) LAN Adress 5900 (VNC) 10.0.0.20 5900 (VNC)
I have made sure that the client uses Port 5900 and the server is listening on the same port, next
to this I have made sure VNC is not blocked by the XP Firewall
And now : If I check the logs I see the source IP incoming with Ports 3492 or whatever else which is
being blocked of course.
Note : I am trying from behind a the old Ipcop box running a squid proxy I would like to dismiss and
replace with Pfsense.
But in order to do so I need to have NAT running properly.
Any hints ?
Thank you in advance

Remove your source port and try again. There is only handful of programs which use very specific source port
I did but no joy, PFSense still blocking. Also consulted the Port forwward troubleshooting guide but it did not
help me. Any other hint ?
It works, that was my mistake as I failed to set the WAN Adress as destination. Once corrected it works. Thank you very much
