Can I plug PFSense Straight into an ISP Connection
Sorry for what may be a really dumb question - but I need to know if I can plug a PFSENSE box straight into an MPLS connection.
Essentially it would look like this:
ISP–---------------|ethernet presentation|------PFSENSE Firewall
I will be looking to use BGP to advertise routes etc, so i think all of that bit should be OK.
I guess what I need to know is - can I do it like this - or do I need to put an MPLS router in front of the box.
Thanks in advance.
The answer is (in 99% of cases) yes, the provider's router/CPE should take care of MPLS.
