Gateway require a point to point route



  • Hi, her is my problem

    On the WAN side, I have only one host, the gateway.
    The WAN IP is a public address (I use 10.10.10.11 in my sample below)  with a mask of 32
    Other hosts have IPs on the same range 10.10.10.X somewhere else in the ISP networks.
    Tthen I cannot use 10.10.10.11/24 for my IP wan because I would lose the possibility to connect to these hosts
    at 10.10.10.X !

    10.10.10.11/32 WAN  < –--- >  GW (10.10.10.254)  ~~ ISP ~~  GW (10.10.10.254)  < ----- >  10.10.10.X/32
                                                            |
                                                            |
                                                        Internet

    Under linux, I use this setup :

    first setup the IP of the WAN interface

    ifconfig eth0 10.10.10.10 netmask 255.255.255.255

    add  a route to the gateway on the eth0 side

    route add -host 10.10.10.254 dev eth0

    now linux know how to reach 10.10.10.254,

    I can use it as a GW

    route add default gw 10.10.10.254

    And it works

    I can I do similar stuff under pfsense using the commands

    route add -net 10.10.10.254/32 -iface em0
    route add default 10.10.10.254

    But how can I do it using the GUI.

    Regards
