PfSense as a transparent firewall



  • Hi all,

    I've build the following structure:

     |---------|
     |   WAN   |
     |---------|
          | WAN-IP/24
          |
          |
     |---------|
     | Switch  |
     |---------|
          |
          |
          | bge0 (VLAN 50)
     |---------|
     | pfSense |-------- xl0 (Mgmt-LAN)
     |---------|
          | bge1 (VLAN 600)
          |
          |
     |---------|
     | Switch  |
     |---------|
          |
          |
          | eth0 (VLAN 600)
    |-----------|
    |    PC     |
    | WAN-IP-1  |
    |-----------|
    

    I've assigned 3 interfaces:

    • WAN - VLAN 50 on bge0

    • LAN - VLAN 600 on bge1

    • Mgmt - xl0

    Then I created a bridge (and if) between WAN and LAN.
    All interfaces with config-type "None" and a firewall-rule "Any 2 Any"

    Finally I assigned a WAN-IP-Address to my computer and try to become an answer from the gateway (on the WAN side) - without any success.

    Do anyone have any idea; what's wrong?

    Many thanks in advance
    Best Regards

  • No idea?



  • System tuneables correct set and NAT fully disabled? Is the pfSense machine real or virtual?
