WAN and LAN Fiber Optics!



  • Hello everyone!

    I've been straggling with pfsense here is my setup:
    Soekris NET6501
    Cox Fiber Optics

    Examples of my IP's:
    Public:
    Routed IP 65.65.65.35
    Gateway 65.65.65.34

    I also got static IP's:
    network 65.65.65.104/29
    65.65.65.106 - 65.65.65.110
    Gateway 65.65.65.105

    Obviously I need to setup WAN to Routed IP and Gateway on em0 interface:
    WAN Ip 65.65.65.35
    WAN Gateway 65.65.65.34

    I created LAN on em1 interface 10.5.1.1

    From web gui I can do a test ping to 8.8.8.8 from WAN and LAN just fine, but any pc that is on lan and gets IP address from network 10.5.1.1/24 can't get outside of lan at all….

    Also how would I assign static IP's that they gave me?

    Guys please help me out here!!!!!!

    I assume 65.65.65 is not your real subnet?

    A common cause of not get internet access on LAN is having set a gateway on the LAN interface. Do you see more than one gateway in System: Routing: Gateways:?

    A common way to use assigned static IPs would be to use virtual IPs on the WAN and 1:1 NAT them to devices on the LAN. If you need to use the public IPs on the LAN you'll need to disable NAT.
