Standard Network Router



  • Hey guys/girls.

    Is it possible to use PF sense as a standard internet router, without having a WAN interface?  To connect 3 network subnets?

    Thanks in advance,
    Hooper



  • dont quite understand your question, but my guesses is that you want it to plain and simple roting between different networks

    then
    yes it can

    Yes - under the "System -> Advanced" tab just check the "Disable Firewall" selection and the pfSense acts like a POR (plain ole router).

    as for the WAN port - it is just another port.

  • This way you disable all firewalling as well. If you want to keep firewalling but shut down nat just go to firewall>nat, outbound nat. Then enable advanced outbound nat, save. Delete the autocreated nat items at the bottom of the page, save and apply. Now you have firewalling capabilities without any nat at all. Btw, pfSense is routing between all directly connected interfaces by default. For remote subnets you can add gateways at system>static routes.
