RouterModem + pfsense Router



  • Hi,

    I was wondering how do I port forward from 2 routers with 2 different gateways?

    My connection is like this:

    Internet -> RouterModem (192.168.254.254) -> pfsense box (192.168.254.101 from RouterModem and 192.168.0.1 from Client Devices/PCs)

    I wanted to open a port for my Apache. But I cant add the IP (192.168.0.189) of my PC to the RouterModem because its from a different gateway. How do I make this work?

    I already tried opening a port (8181) from RouterModem on IP 192.168.254.101. Then I opened the same port (8181) on pfsense for the IP 192.168.0.189 but doesnt seem to work.

  • You should switch the router in bridge mode if this is possible and configure your public IP on pfSenses WAN interface.
    In your setup you do double-NAT and the are issues if you want to reach a host behind from the internet.

    You may also switch your pfSense in bridge mode, but when do so you cannot use services on pfSense like captive portal or VPN server.
