Can I plug PFSense Straight into an ISP Connection


  • Hi,

    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:

    <-MPLS->
        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.

    Jim


  • The answer is (in 99% of cases) yes, the provider's router/CPE should take care of MPLS.
