Forwarding all traffic to remote proxy server from specific LAN IP

  • Hello, this is my first time here and I hope this is the right group for this question.  If not please free to move it, thanks!

    So what I am attempting to workout around is the PS3 Netflix proxy restrictions by routing all the PS3 traffic to a proxy server I am running on a Linode server.  The goal here is to use the network that Linode uses to receive the SuperHD content that is not available on my TWC connection.  I have already tried setting the proxy config inside the PS3 directly to my proxy server and the Netflix app explicitly routes around it. :(

    Here is my LAN configuration with OpenVPN links in place.  I am using OpenVPN to tunnel traffic to and from the Linode server to my local LAN.

    My local LAN subnet, <- can communicate with OpenVPN ip's no problem.
    OpenVPN LAN subnet <- can communicate with local LAN ip's no problem.

    I have configured the proxy server on Linode server port 7007.  I have already confirmed that it is working well as a transparent proxy, no problems.  Now I just need to get all the traffic from the PS3 ( to be passed through the proxy server.  I would think this can be accomplished with a firewall rule, but its not working as expected.

    Can someone please tell me the correct way to configure this in pfSense?

    Thanks a bunch!

    If it is port 80 traffic, then it could work that way with a port forward:

    Interface: LAN
    Protocol: TCP
    Source: <the ip="" of="" your="" ps3="">Destination: any
    Destination port: 80
    Redirect target: <ip of="" the="" proxy="">Redirect target port: <your proxy="" port="">If anything would work, that would do it. It likely wouldn't work for HTTPS or other protocols other than plain HTTP though. For HTTPS, you'd need to change the destination port to 443.</your></ip></the>
