How to access multiple static IPs



  • Hello, I am a novice at networking and not sure how this should be done, hopefully somebody can point me in the right direction.  I have:

    Modem -> WAN | pfsense|–------- LAN
    ->Static IP1 ---|          |--------- DHCP Server
    ->Static IP2 ---|          |--------- Web Server
    ->Static IP3 ---|          |--------- Mail Server

    The Static IPs are being passed through the modem and need to be assigned to each device.  I can get PFsense working and assign it to any of the static IPs, but I am not sure how to assign the other Static IPs to various servers using the pfsense box.  Physically, do I need a separate WAN card and LAN card for each static IP?  Do I have to set up a DMZ with another pfsense box or will subneting work?  What is the basic procedure to get this to work in pfsense?

    Thanks in advance.  Hopefully this makes sense.



  • Go to firewall, Virtual IPs to add the additional public IPs. Then use 1-1 NAT or port-forwards to direct the traffic to your internal servers. There are many threads on the exact procedure and details.



  • Thanks for the push in the right direction, wasn't sure what to search originally, but I think I got it now  ;D.



  • Hi there,
