What WAN type is ethernet ?



  • We have a leased line just installed, it requires no 'login' and does not provide dhcp. If I plug a laptop into the port and manually set the LAN ip on the laptop with one of the public ip's it works great.

    We have 8 public ip's assigned. How do I bridge this in pfsense ? Do I just use pppoe and leave the user/pass blank ?

    Thanks



  • May have answered my own question…

    I a, going to make the wan static and give it one of the assigned public ip's and use the ISP provided gateway.

    Hopefully this will work!



  • Yeah.  Wan interface should probably either be static or assigned by DHCP if you have a modem provided by some provided that dishes out an IP.  But it could be PPPoe or some other protocol.  Hard to know without knowing who provides you IP and how.

    What you want to do is set it to static use the first/lowest IP you got and use /29 as subnet. Then the first officially usable ip is the lowest IP+1. Although am pretty sure all will work.



  • haha.

    I glossed over the "If I plug a laptop into the port and manually set the LAN ip on the laptop with one of the public ip's it works great."

    Yes.  Static IP.  However, I'm wondering about his 8 IPs since he will only get one if he doesn't take steps to see all 8?

    I see a nice youtube video on that here:
