PfSense on PROXMOX with VLANs?

  • I am new to proxmox and Pfsense but I have managed to add a /28 subnet, and install Pfsense on KVM relatively "easy".

    One of the IPs of the subnet is assigned on a Proxmox bridge and (vmbr1) works ok.
    On proxmox I also have the following bridge (with no IP):

    auto vmbr3
    iface vmbr3 inet manual
        bridge_ports none
        bridge_stp off
        bridge_fd 0

    The proxmox kvm has 2 NICs, one connected to vmbr1 (as WAN) and the other to vmbr3 (as LAN,

    If I create another KVM, and connect it to vmbr3 then I have a happily working KVM behind the Pfsense.

    What I want to achieve however (and I can't!) is to create VLANs behind Pfsense.
    My problem is not creating the VLANs inside Pfsense but on how to connect the different kvms on those VLANs!

    I have followed this tutorial up to the point that the author makes changes on the switch :
    Youtube Video

    Pfsense shows WAN, LAN, VLAN1 and VLAN2.
    The mystery is how to attach KVMs on VLAN1 & VLAN2!!!

    I am assuming here that something needs to be done on the proxmox network and can't figure what (and possibly how) as I exhausted my knowledge!

    Can someone please heeeeelp?  :'(
