PfSense 2.1 NAT port forwarding not working
I've some trouble getting port forwarding work on my firewall.
I'm using 2.1 beta because of my mainboard, 2.0.3 doesn't recognize my 2 Nic's but 2.1 does so I can't test with 2.0.3.
This is what I have in the NAT Port forward
WAN TCP * 12345 LAN address 12345 192.168.1.105 12345 Vivotek
And this in the rule
IPv4 TCP * 12345 192.168.1.105 12345 * none NAT Vivotek
Can someone please tell what's wrong in my config?
Internally I can connect to the device without any problem.
It works when I replace my pfsense system with my Vigor router/firewall that has the same port forward rule.
thank you in advance.
Specifying a Source Port in a NAT or Firewall Rule is almost always a mistake. Leave that set to * (Any).
I did this yesterday because it says 'should usually be 'any'' but it doesn't work.
I changed it back to any now but still having the same problem, in the log I can see it is blocked it says
"@3 block drop in log inet all label "Default deny rule IPv4"
WAN TCP * * LAN address 12345 192.168.1.105 12345 Vivotek
Try setting the NAT like this:
WAN TCP * * WAN address 12345 192.168.1.105 12345
Try setting the Firewall Rule like this if not automatically added by the NAT:
TCP * * 192.168.1.105 12345 * none
That's the solution, thanks a lot!!! Changing Lan address to WAN address directly worked ;)
I need help.
I have PfSense 2.0.3.
