LANs don't talk to each other



  • I have the following setup

    <modem>–- (WAN) <pfsense>(LAN)  --- (subnet 192.168.1.0) 8 port switch
                                              (LAN1) --- (subnet 192.168.2.0) Wireless Accesspoint

    How do I setup the rules so LAN and LAN1 can share files via \Wireless-computerIP or \Wireless-computerNAME or even can I get Microsoft Workgroup to see them?</pfsense></modem>



  • are LAN and LAN1 two separate interfaces? If so, you just need firewall rules to allow the desired traffic.



  • Yes they are… What would they look like?

    Thanks,



  • Anyone want to help me on these rules?



  • What rules do you have on the interfaces?

    MS workgroup is based on broadcasts and they wont get over a router.



  • With the default rule on both lan's it will work with \ip

    else try without accesspoint
    or
    post your rules on both lan

    Post the rules you have tried to get working and we have something to work on



  • Hi! First of all, sorry about my english
    I have a question but quite the contrary:
    have a router, network built on vlans. How could block access from one vlan to other vlans?



  • So, to fix this issue I added a swtich and disabled the second LAN and it worked.  But I have decided that I want to split that traffic again.

    So there is my current setup.

    ISP <-> <pfsense>  <-> LAN <-> 192.168.1.1 <-> 192.168.1.100 (Windows Server 2003)
                                                                  <-> 192.168.1.101 (Windows Vista Ultimate)
                                                                  <-> DHCP (XBMC)
                                                                  <-> DHCP (XBox 360)
                                                                  <->… DHCP (Windows XP)
                                <->LAN1 <->192.168.2.1 <-> 192.168.2.151 (Windows Vista Ultimate)
                                                                  <-> DHXP (Windows XP)
                                                                  <->DHCP (XBMC)
                                                                  <->DHCP (XBox 360)
                                                                  <->... DHCP (Windows XP)
                                <->WLAN0<->192.168.3.1 <->... DHCP (Windows XP)

    I have setup default rules on the LAN interfaces to be able to access the WAN and setup default rules to setup traffic between the LANS. (See attached image)

    Now, I am able to do a \192.168.1.100 from any place on any LAN and I am able to get to the Windows 2003 Server.  But if I am on LAN 192.168.1.101 and try a \192.168.2.151 I am unable to get to the other Windows Vista machine.  Basically I am only able to get to the server but I want to be able to to transfer files between all the lans.
