Hi, I'm configuring a pfSense firewall and I'm having an unusual problem.
My office has a VOIP phone system from Star2Star that has a pbx box that shapes our internet traffic to optimize the connection. Our network looks like this:
ISP > PBX > Firewall > Active Directory running DNS & DHCP
After my internet comes through the PBX, I'm supposed to point the WAN to 10.40.47.50 (IP address of the port on the back of the PBX) and the Gateway to 10.40.47.1 addresses. That doesn't work though. I unchecked both the "block private networks" and "block bogon networks" boxes. Still didn't work.
As soon as I bypass the PBX and use my ISP's IP & Gateway information everything works perfectly.
Am I missing something?
Define 'doesn't work'. How are you testing this?
Has the PBX box worked previously? Are you getting any link LEDs even? If both ends are 10/100 you may need a cross-over cable.
