Routing problem



  • Hi,

    I am trying to setup a subnet on my pfsense 2.1 acting as firewall / router. I have only one interface for LAN so I have created an IP Allies on LAN interface to give it address of 10.0.32.1 /24 The main network is 192.168.1.0 /24. I have also added a 10.0.32.1 as another Gateway and set a static route for 10.0.32.0 /24 to go through 192.168.1.1 which is LAN gateway and same PFSense lan interface holding IP Alias.

    I can ping devices on 10.0.32.0 network from 192.168.1.0 network but I cannot do from 10.0.32.0 to 192…

    Devices on 10.0.32.0 network have gateway set to 10.0.32.1 but I cannot set a static route in pfsense for 192.168.1.0 network for returning traffic from 10.0.32.0.

    Could anybody advice.

    Thanks

    Use VLAN's instead….



  • Hi,

    Thanks for taking time to answer but my network HW does not support vlans.

    Cheers

    You can use VLANS on pfsense instead af aliases.

    Just assign vlans under interfaces and choose the parent interface.

    Then pfsense will handle the routing. Unless you traverse traffic via switched hardware then vlan hardware support should be ok.
