Multiple ports to a single port



  • i want to replace my old firewall with pfsense

    for some reason i need to forward more than one port to the single port

    so i want port 5060 to 5069 to the single port 5060
    i doesn't see how i can do this except from creating 9 rules

    Correct, you will need 9 rules for that. There isn't a shortcut to do that.

    If you forward a range, it forwards them all to an equivalent local range
    If you forward and alias, the destination must also be the same alias/number of ports.

    If you want to forward nine different external ports to the same local port, there is no easier way to do that than separate rules.



  • OK, since I'm new to pfSense, how are those rules? :)
    I mean that I need to map an external ip address and port to an internal ip address but different port. I can't find how :|
    Can you just give me a hint? ;D



  • Have you searched for that, there is lots on the forums and net on how to forward say 5066 to port 5060.
    The hint is:
    Src: any
    sport: any
    dst: <localip>dport: 5060
    For the firewall rule.

    For the NAT is something like:
    dst: <wan or="" external="" ip="" alias="">dport: 5066
    redirect: <internal ip="">redirect port: 5060

    You need nine NAT rules (one for each port) and one FW rule (the one for port 5060).</internal></wan></localip>

    That's why I'm new :)
    I was doing a 1:1 nat and I was adding manually the associated rule. I wasn't using the Port Forwarding menu, which happen to add the rule by default.
    Thanks!
