Iptables



  • Hi, I've got a linux firewall with iptables that i use for routing. Is it possible to do this with pfsense?

  • pfSense is not Linux based. It has FreeBSD as basis.
    pfSense does not use ipTables but pf (packet filter).
    Thus the name ;)

    What exactly is your questions?
    What are you trying to do?



  • I have to use this feature where I can find?

    FORWARD - The default chains is used when packets send through another interface. Usually used when you setup Linux as router. For example, eth0 connected to ADSL/Cable modem and eth1 is connected to local LAN. Use FORWARD chain to send and receive traffic from LAN to the Internet.



  • In pfSense you have to think a bit different.

    Rules are always applied on the interface on which traffic arrives.
    So if you want to have a rule to apply to traffic going from LAN to WAN you put the rule on the LAN-tab.
    If you want a rule to apply to traffic from WAN to LAN, then you put the rule on the WAN-tab.
    etc.
