Dhcp and pfsense



  • Team,

    I have a secondary device handing out DHCP to a guest wireless network.

    All traffic coming from this AP goes through my LAN.

    pfsense is blocking traffic coming from this subnet.

    Is there a way I can have pfsense allow that subnet to pass through the internet?

    Regards,



  • I guess the guest wireless AP is behind (is it itself) an internal router that is itself sitting on your LAN. If so, then just:

    1. Add a pass rule on LAN for source IP the guest WiFi subnet
    2. Add a gateway in System->Routes with the IP address of the internal router on your LAN.
    3. Add a static route for guest WiFi subnet, to the gateway from (2)
