No internet access with default install and public ip
I'm not sure the title explains exactly what my problem is. I have a thomson/technicolor vdsl2 modem that I have setup with DMZ (http://help.telecom.co.nz/app/answers/detail/a_id/20201)
My physical setup looks like this:
Modem <–-> pfSense <---> LAN
From the default install my console shows this:
*** Welcome to pfSense 2.1.4-RELEASE-pfSense (amd64) on pfsense *** WAN (wan) -> re0 -> v4/DHCP4: 219.XX.XXX.XX/24 LAN (lan) -> re1 -> v4: 10.1.1.1/24
My routing table shows:
Routing tables Internet: Destination Gateway Flags Refs Use Netif Expire 10.1.1.0/24 link#2 U 0 1073 re1 10.1.1.1 link#2 UHS 0 0 lo0 127.0.0.1 link#5 UH 0 270 lo0 219.XX.XXX.0/24 link#1 U 0 0 re0 219.XX.XXX.XX link#1 UHS 0 0 lo0
When I try and ping 126.96.36.199 from the pfsense shell I get no response, when I try to ping from my LAN I also get no response.
When I add a defualt route to the 219 re0 interface I am able to ping fine:
route add default 219.XX.XXX.XX PING 188.8.131.52 (184.108.40.206): 56 data bytes 64 bytes from 220.127.116.11: icmp_seq=0 ttl=55 time=41.416 ms
But even with that route added my lan is still unable to ping any internet ip addresses. From my pc's I am able to ping 10.1.1.1 (the pfSense lan ip).
I'm assuming there is another route I need to add between 10.1.1.1 and 219.XX.XXX.XX, or is it some sort of gateway or NAT that I need to setup?
What do your firewall rules for WAN and LAN look like?
Just the defaults that came with pfsense (at the time).
I have since changed my modem to act as a bridge and it's working fine. I didn't even realise that it had the option to do that. So all is well.
I have a new weird problem where ssh port forwarding doesn't seem to work for one ip address, but I'm not concerned about this now.
